Sorrel Pie

Sorrel Pie

Some times I don’t know what to cook for dinner or on weekends, some other times I feel like a master chef in the kitchen, but I’m short of  key ingredients for the recipes, making it short, I cannot find a solution either way ☺.

Usually when the end of the month is approaching and the grocery shopping is nearing, I do the inventory of the ingredients I have at home and what I need to buy. This is a very good way to consume what we have and not buy foods that we have excessively at home. Making this I avoid spoiling food and money. The inventory includes even the fridge or freezer besides of the pantry.

During one of these inventory days I noticed that I had  2 packs of ready-made puff pastry in the fridge and some pre-washed sorrel that I forgot to cook ☺

It lit my imagination, so I thought : – I’m going to make a quick pie with sorrel and cottage cheese. I had some cottage cheese and some feta cheese too in the fridge so I started cooking.

Serves 4

Cooking time: 40 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2   puff pastry packages (thawed if frozen)
  • 500 gr sorrel
  • 100gr cottage cheese
  • 100gr feta cheese
  • 2 tbsp. Olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 250◦C
  2. Drizzle some olive oil in a pan and sauté the sorrel for about 10 minutes to release excess water.
  3. Throw the sorrel in a bowl and add the cottage & feta cheese in it. Season with salt if needed. Mix until combined.
  4. Remove the puff pastry sheets from the fridge and divide them in half (this way you’ll have 4 rectangulars)
  5. Put ½ of the filling in one rectangular leaving 2cm space from the borders.
  6. Brush the sides with egg wash and cover with the other rectangular, seal the edges with a fork. For a better presentation cut the upper layer of pastry with cookie cutter (prior to sealing) , or if you do not dispose them, just pick with a fork.
  7. Repeat steps 5 & 6 for the remaining puff pastry.
  8. Brush both pies with egg wash and bake until golden brown, approx. 30 minutes.
