Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Brush a 9-inch bake pan generously with extra virgin olive oil.

2. For the Filling: In a large bowl, combine chopped greens, chopped herbs, 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, black pepper and sea salt or Himalaya pink salt. Mix to wilt the greens, then set aside gently.

3. In a small sauté pan over medium heat, add one tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, scallions, and cook in the slow heat, about 5 minutes.

4. To Assemble the Pie: Open your phyllo and keep it covered with a moist kitchen towel while working. Working with one sheet at a time, lay phyllo carefully so that it is centered in your pan with the excess draping over the rim and brush generously with about one tablespoon extra virgin olive oil.

5. Add greens mixture to phyllo-lined pie. Fold excess phyllo over greens and drape remaining one sheet of phyllo over the top. Drizzle with more extra virgin olive oil. Slice into portions using a serrated knife. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 45 minutes. Allow cooling at least 15 minutes before serving.
