Kalfa

Kalfa is a green that has the appearance of thick, long stalks of asparagus. It is popular on the islands of Andros, Mykonos, Paros and Tinos. This particular plant has been known for its aromatic properties since at least the 1st century C.E. and is mentioned by the physician and naturalist Dioscourides.

It is used in omelets or dipped in batter and fried or used as the filling for vegetable pita. Boiled with skordalia it becomes a classic Parian meze.
