Mustard Greens / Chaya
Cook shallots with garlic, turmeric, black pepper and sea salt in pan. Brown the bottom of the pan with that mixture.
Add white wine to make it a sauce and stir to consistency. Then add mustard greens or boiled (for 10 minutes) shredded Chaya. Toss in sauce and cover until the desired tenderness is reached. Five minutes before taking off the lid, add more white wine to cook off.
Season with salt and pepper. Enjoy!

For the dough
½ cup chilled butter plus 3 tablespoons lard
2 cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
5 to 6 tablespoons cold water
For the topping
2 cups milk or cream
1 cup shredded cheese
1 onion, chopped in cubes
bunch of Chaya (boiled for 15 minutes), cut in slices
salt, paprika, nutmeg
Mix the ingredients for the dough and spread it out in a buttered pie dish. Make sure that you have dough standing out on the sides so the liquid topping will stay inside. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes at 350 F.
Beat the eggs and mix with milk and the seasoning.
Get the dough out of the oven and put the egg-milk mixture on top. Add the chopped onion, the sliced Chaya and the shredded cheese.
Put back in the oven for about 30 more minutes. Check on it when it starts to smell good. Serve warm or cold. Enjoy.
