Why I Love This Recipe

Step 1 :Wash the wild greens and make sure you squeeze all of the water/moisture from them and place in large bowl.

Step 2 :Wash and cut the leeks and green onions and add to the bowl.

Step 3 :Add the crumbled feta cheese, ¼ cup olive oil, salt, pepper and dill weed and mix well making sure all of the ingredients are incorporated well.

Step 4 :Taste your filling and add more salt, pepper and dill weed if needed.

Step 5 :Coat a 9 x 13 baking pan with olive oil.

Step 6 :In a separate bowl mix all ingredients as listed above for the bottom layer of the pita (pie).The mixture will be slightly thick.

Step 7 :Take a large spoon and drop the mixture into the pan and smooth the mixture out evenly over the pan.

Step 8 :Pour your wild green filling into the pan and spread evenly.

Step 9 :Mix all ingredients as listed above for the top layer of the pita. The mixture will be much looser in comparison to the bottom layer.

Step 10 :Pour the mixture onto the middle of the filling and with your hand spread the mixture over the top of the filling.

Step 11 :It will be a light coating of mixture and it will seem as though it is not enough, but it will rise when baking.

Step 12 :Place in a 350 degree oven and back for about 45-60 minutes or until the top is golden brown.

Step 13 :Serve with a side of Greek yogurt.

Step 14 :Enjoy!
