Onion Harvest Pie Recipe

 

Several bloggers asked about this recipe after I blogged about Chef Dolores serving this meal.

 

From The Onion Harvest Cookbook by Barbara Ciletti

(A cookbook with some really great recipes)

 

2 pounds, fresh Swiss chard, stems and leaves chopped separately

2 eggs

1 cup ricotta cheese

¼ cup freshly grated Parmagiano-Reggiano cheese

¼ tsp ground nutmeg

¼ tsp fine sea salt

¼ tsp finely ground black pepper

½ cup minced pancetta  (can omit if you want a vegetarian alternate)

1 large white winter onion diced

3 cloves garlic minced

¼ cup golden seedless raisins

2 unbaked pastry sheet, thawed   (Can also use 2 pie crusts)

In a large pot, bring ½ cup water to a boil. Cook the Swiss chard stems 5 minutes, then add the leaves, cover and cook 5 minutes or until greens are bright with color yet pliable. Drain and set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs. Stir in the cheeses, nutmeg, salt and pepper and set aside.

In a 12 inch frying pan, sauté the pancetta over low heat 5-7 minutes. Add the onions and garlic, and cook another 5 minutes.  Add the Swiss chard and raisins, and blend well. Remove pan from the heat, then add the cheese mixture, blending all ingredients with a spoon.

Grease a 9 inch or 10 inch springform pan with butter.  Roll out one pastry sheet to a thickness of 1/8 inch to ¼ inch. Line the bottom and sides of the pan with the sheet   (or pie crust). Spoon the Swiss chard mixture into the pan. Roll the second pastry sheet (or pie crust into a 10 inch circle, and cover the top of the pan.  Press the edges of the pastry together all the way around the pie, fluting lightly if desired.

Place the pie on a baking sheet, and bake 40-45 minutes, or until the top is flaky and golden.  Remove the sides from the pan and allow the pie to rest 10 minutes before cutting. Serve hot.

Serves 8-10.

We have a rainy Monday morning in Kentlands but the birds were singing when I went out to pick up The Washington Post. Have an outstanding week.

Thank you for sharing the recipe. It sounds very healthy and chocked full of tasty ingredients. I bet the raisins make it have a slight sweetness.

Thanks Roy, we will have to find a substitute or omit the pancetta for me, otherwise it's perfect. Thank the Chef for sharing. D

Aloha Roy, I will have to try this recipe, substituting sweet Maui onions and Kalo leaves for the chard. Mahalo for sharing!

Roy, this sounds like an unusual and yet, delicious recipe. Gets me wondering the history of the recipe; perhaps originated in some European country and brought to America years ago?
