DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 200'C, gas mark 6. Melt butter in oil in a large wide-based pan, and gently fry the onions for 10 minutes to soften. Add the pecans and garlic, cook for 1 minute, then stir in the kale and 1 tbsp water (you may need to do this in batches). Season, cover and simmer gently for 8-10 minutes until tender. Uncover and cook for 2 minutes, then drain in a colander. Allow to cool.
  • Put the cooled kale mixture in a large bowl and fold in the nutmeg, feta, eggs and dill.
  • Brush an ovenproof dish (about 20 x 30cm, 8x12 in) with oil. Use 4 filo sheets to line the dish, brushing with oil and overlapping as you go. Put in the filling and spread it evenly over the dish. Fold over the excess pastry.
  • Oil the remaining filo and use it to top the pie, oiled side up. Use a sharp knife to score the top into 6 equal pieces. Scatter with caraway seeds and bake for 30-35 minutes until golden and crisp. Serve warm or at room temperature.
