I’ve had this recipe for a savoury zucchini pie bookmarked for quite sometime. The torn magazine page has been sitting in a pile of “recipes to be tried soon” for so long that this pile should now be called “recipes to be tried in a very long time.” The thing is I’ve been afraid, very afraid. What in a recipe from one of my favourite cooking magazines could cause me to feel such fear?
Homemade pie crust.
This pie crust came together in literally 5 minutes. After I had finished I kind of looked around and thought, that’s it?! Yup, that is it! I must admit it was a bit crumbly, so instead of rolling it out I simply pressed it into my pie pan. Worked like a charm. It also uses olive oil in place of the traditional butter so it’s heart healthy to boot!
This pie is so unique and impressive looking, it is perfect for summer entertaining. But in reality, it is the definition of a “quicky meal.” It is light tasting and filling at the same time – exactly what I look for in a summer dish.
All it needs is a simple salad and dinner is served. Say goodbye to your pie nightmares and say hello to savoury pie dreams.
