Soparnik

This bread comes from Croatia, where they make it on very large wooden boards over hot ashes and serve it to groups of people. It is a dish meant to share, so make sure you have some friends around when you make it.

Serves 3-4

What you need:

3 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp olive oil
3 cups swiss chard, chopped
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
1 tsp salt
3 cloves garlic, diced
1 tbsp olive oil

Preheat the oven to 180° C (350° F). In a mixing bowl, mix the 3 1/2 cups flour with the 1 tsp salt. Add the water and olive oil slowly, mixing until a dough forms. Seperate the dough into two equal size balls. Chop the swiss chard and parsley and set aside. Flour a large surface and roll one of the balls of dough into a 10-inch diameter (25 cm) circle using a rolling pin (or a similar shaped object). Place dough on lightly oiled pizza sheet (or other baking sheet, you can change the shape of the bread depending on your baking sheet). Sprinkle the swiss chard, parsley, and salt on the rolled out layer of dough. Roll the remaining layer of dough out in the same way you did the base layer and drape over the chard. Press the sides of the two layers together so that the chard is completely covered. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Remove from oven, drizzle olive oil and garlic on top of the bread, and place back in oven for 10 more minutes. Remove from oven, cut, and serve while hot.
