swiss chard vs. collard greens

krissywats | Feb 9, 2005 08:04 AM

I'm cooking with a lot of new ingredients since I joined a CSA. I also happen to have a new french cookbook my husband got me for Christmas (it's a gorgeous coffe table book, as well!). In it is a recipe for Tourte Aux Blettes (Swiss Chard Pie). The ingredients are:

sweet pastry
swiss chard
2 eggs
brown sugar
gouda
currants
pine nuts
lemon rind
pepper
milk

My question is can I substitute collard greens in this pie? I don't know enough about the taste of cooked collard greens to make that assessment. Thanks for your help!
