Soparnik- Croatian Silverbeet pie

While I was away eating my way through Croatia, I came across this dish. Made with the usual suspects you too will find this dish both satisfying and delicious.

I ate this while I was in Split and this dish served me well while taking in the scenery and attend to my long walk fuel.

What you will need:

2 cups of plain flour

1 1/2 cups of water 


3 tablespoons of olive oil

For the filling

about 1 kg of silverbeet-stalks removed

one spring onion

2 cloves of garlic

slice the silverbeet (remove stalks first!)thinly as well as the onion and garlic drizzle with about 1/4 cup olive oi, mix through with your hands and set aside.

 For the oil topping

minced garlic  and 1/4 cup olive oil infused and set aside


How to assemble it

Make your dough. 

Combine flour water oil and slat and mix well.

Flour a bench and with half the dough roll into a circle.

Place your  dough on a baking tray then add your filling ontop of the dough and set aside.

With the remaining dough make a circle and pop on top. 

Crimp the edges of the dough to form a seal.

Pop in the oven 200.C for 20 minutes.

When its ready pour the garlic oil all over the top and serve
