Preparation — 20 minutes
Rinse the swiss chard and spinach and finely chop them. Peel and finely chop the garlic cloves.
Heat a dash of olive oil in a large skillet and gradually add swiss chard and spinach until they’re completely wilted. Add finely chopped garlic and cook a little more. Season with pepper and salt.
Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius or 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Melt butter in a small saucepan or in microwave and coat each sheet of filo dough with butter. Coat the pie dish with butter and line with filo dough sheets. Divide the chard mixture over the bottom.
Finishing the swiss chard pie — 40 minutes
Combine eggs with cream, grated cheese, nutmeg, pepper and salt. Divide over the chard mixture and add some feta cubes and almond shavings on top.
Fold the sides of the filo dough inwards and coat with some more butter. Bake the savory swiss chard pie in the oven for about half an hour, or until beautiful golden brown. The exact time depends on the oven, enjoy!
