Spicy mixed greens (the more peppery the better) on Corfu, served at Lent, with garlic, chili flakes, leeks, tomatoes and parsley. Outside of Lent, they may be prepared in a chicken broth.

Sometimes known as Κερκυραϊκό Τσιγαρέλι (kerkyraikó tsigarélli), or Corfiot tsigarelli. The word, a bit confusingly, also means cigarettes!
