Method

Scorch the greens (put in boiling water for a few minutes) or wash and strain well. Mix in a bowl with the herbs, onion, rice, olive oil, salt and pepper.
Spread the pastry sheet on a greasy baking tray, in a way that its walls are covered. Pour the greens mix over and add lemon juice. Fold the pastry sheet towards the inside. Then cover the pie with another sheet, carve it and add some oil on the top. Preheat the oven in 200 °C and bake for 1 hour.
