Preparation of the savory pie with black cabbage and escarole

  1. In a bowl mix white flour and wholemeal flour, then arrange the mix on a pastry board, to form the classic “fountain”.
  2. Add the softened butter to the fountain, a pinch of salt and, slowly, the amount of water necessary to form a homogeneous mixture.
  3. Work the dough with your hands, when it is ready cover it with cling film and let it rest for at least an hour.
  4. Now clean the black cabbage by removing the central rib, which is always hard and not very digestible, then cut the rest into small pieces and steam it for 10-12 minutes or boil it in salted water for 5-6 minutes .
  5. When the cabbage is cooked, drain it well and let it cool, then pass it to the mixer together with the gorgonzola until a fine mixture is obtained.
  6. Beat the eggs with the milk and a pinch of salt and mix everything into the mixture.
  7. Turn on the oven at 180 ° C. While you wait for it to heat up, slice the shallot finely and brown them in a pan with two large tablespoons of oil for about 5-6 minutes .
  8. Then add the sliced ​​escarole, salt everything to your liking and cook for 10 minutes over a high heat, making sure that most of the liquid dries.
  9. With a rolling pin you can now roll out the dough that was resting, making it a thin sheet.
  10. Oil a 24-26 cm cake pan and place the pastry on it, folding the upper part of the edge on itself, so as to form a “double” edge of about 1 cm.
  11. Press the edge on the pan with your fingers to make it adhere well, prick the bottom of the pastry with a fork and bake for 12-15 minutes.
  12. When it is cooked, remove the pasta from the oven and let it cool a bit. Fill it with the sautéed escarole and then cover it with the creamy mixture of cabbage, gorgonzola and eggs.
  13. Bake again at 180 ° C for another 15-20 minutes and serve.
