Veggie Pie with Cheese and root vegetables 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Simple, yet tasty. Cheese and veggies go very well together — combine that with a crispy pie crust and I am in heaven. The best thing about this pie is all the possibilities. Root vegetables, grilled vegetables, fresh garden greens, filo pie crust, plain flour pie crust, dairy free puff pastry crust and more. Let your imagination run wild.



Ingredients:
For this recipe you will need

Pie Crust (4 options):

¦Store bought dairy free puff pastry
¦Store bought filo pastry sheets
¦Store bought pie crust
¦Home made pie crust: 1 1/3 Plain White Flour, ½ tsp Salt, 100 g Dairy Free Margarine & 3 tbs cold Water. (all is mixed together and stored cool before baking)
Filling:


Here is where your creativity comes into place, use around 500 grams (½ kilo) of your favorite veggies. For this recipe I used: Zucchini, Baby Tomatoes, Garlic, Onion, Eggplant, Bellpepper and Mushrooms. But other veggies goes well in a pie too: Potato, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Sweet Potato, Leek, Artichokes and much much more.

Cheese Base:

¦50-100 g Butter or coconut oil
¦500 ml Plain Dairy Free Milk/Cooking Cream (I used plain cooking cream made from oats)
¦3-4 tbs Plain White Flour
¦1 Vegetable Stock Cube, Salt, Pepper and/or other spices of your choice
¦Grated Vegan Cheese or Parmasan Powder (to taste)


Directions:
To be baked in:

¦Round pie baking tin 26-28cm / 10-11inch in diameter (oil for greasing)
Directions:

1.Pre-heat your oven to 200C / 390F.
2.Mix all the ingredients for your pie crust or use your store bought pastry. Bake for 10-15 minutes.
3.Clean and peel your vegetables. Cut into desired shapes and just quickly saute' in a frying pan with some oil. (this stage is just to get things going so the veggies will be cooked properly coming out of the oven. If using root vegetables, broccoli or cauliflower boiling/steaming them first is a good thing)
4.Now time to start with the cheese filling. Melt the butter and add the flour while stirring continuously. Start adding your milk/cream some at a time. Add the vegetable cube and spices, remember to stir and stir so this cheese sauce won’t stick and burn. Grate the cheese and ass to the sauce/ sprinkle in your parmesan powder. Taste!
5.Add all the vegetables into the pie crust and pour the cheese filling on top.
6.Cook in the oven for 20-30min until the cheese has set and is golden.
7.Eat with a nice side salad and enjoy.

Tip: If you wait and serve the pie once it has cooled down your pie slices will be perfect, eating it hot straight out of the oven the cheese is more of a sauce than set.




Servings: 4-6


Notes: This recipe originally called for margarine, some of my old recipes call for it, although I always substitute butter or coconut oil for it. These are two natural ingredients that you body can actually assimilate.

Table Salt Versus Sea Salt Versus Crystal Salt
Why you should be concerned about using table salt? What is the difference between table salt versus sea salt versus himalayan crystal salt? Are you “worth your salt” or are you “the salt of the earth”? Salt is really an important and necessary part of our daily lives. I invite you to think about it seriously and treat it with respect...

Recipe
Toasted Pumpkin Seeds
Category: Snacks
Description: Pumpkin seeds, also known as pepitas, are flat, dark green seeds.

Subtly sweet and nutty with a malleable, chewy texture, the roasted seeds from inside your Halloween pumpkin are one of the most nutritious and flavorful seeds around. While pumpkin seeds are available year round, they are the freshest in the fall when pumpkins are in season.

Pumpkin Seeds May Promote Prostate Health

Benign prostatic hypertrophy, or BPH, is a condition that commonly affects men 50 years and older. BPH involves enlargement of the prostate gland. One of the factors that contributes to BPH is overstimulation of the prostate cells by testosterone and its conversion product, DHT (dihydrotestosterone). Components in pumpkin seed oil appear able to interrupt this triggering of prostate cell multiplication by testosterone and DHT, although the exact mechanism for this effect is still a matter of discussion. Equally open for discussion is the relationship between pumpkin seed oil extracts (which could be purchased in the form of a dietary supplement) and pumpkin seeds themselves.

Either way, they are a great healthy snack.
