This recipe was based on one I saw on Food52. While they used Swiss chard I used a mixture of chard (or Silverbeet), kale and leeks, but spinach, rocket and even broccoli would all work.

2 tablespoons olive oil

½ onion

Salt to taste

2 cloves garlic 1 leek

1 bunch silverbeet, stems removed (about 500 grams)

1 bunch Kale

1 Cornmeal Dough

1cup ricotta

1cup grated cheese (a mixture of whatever you have. I used mozzarella and Parmesan)

1 egg yolk

Heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan over a medium heat. Add the sliced onion and leek and cook, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes. Season with a pinch of salt. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Pile the remaining greens, cover the pan if you are able, and cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until the leaves begin to wilt. Uncover the pan, and continue cooking until all liquid evaporates. Taste and season if necessary.

Line a baking tray with baking paper and heat the oven to 180C. Roll the dough on a floured surface into a large rectangle, slightly bigger than the baking try. Carefully transfer the rolled out dough to the prepared baking sheet. Spread the ricotta on the dough, leaving a two-inch border all the way around. On top of the ricotta add the sautéed greens and the sprinkle the grated cheese over top. Fold the edges of the dough inward over the filling. Pinch together any tears in the dough before brushing the edges with the egg yolk Bake until the crust has browned and the cheese has melted, 35 to 45 minutes.
