Silverbeet and Sumac Pastries


1 bunch of silverbeet thinly sliced

4 small onions finely diced/grated

4 lemons

half a cup of olive oil

half a teaspoon of salt

2-3 tablespoons sumac

6 sheets all butter puff pastry


  1. In a large bowl combine the silverbeet, onions, lemon juice, oil, salt and sumac and mix well.
  2. Allow to drain for a few hours. You want the filling to be dry so you get a nice crispy pastry. If the filling is too wet the pastry will go soggy and open up.
  3. Cut your puff pastry into 4 squares.
  4. Add the filling mixture to the centre and fold over and pinch together to close.
  5. Bake in a 160 degree oven until golden.

Optional: If you are a chilli lover, chilli flakes or a finely diced red chilli goes really well in the mixture.
