I got this great recipe for vegetable pot pie from http://earthgirlknits.blogspot.com/2010/03/pot-pie.html . As I read the directions, it occurred to me that this pie can be adapted to include pretty much anything, any time of year. I decided to try it out the night before the farmer's market as a way to get rid of all the leftover produce I hadn't yet eaten this week.
(Yes, it looks a little weird. I ran out of dough for the top of the crust, but I promise, the flavor was not affected).
Leftover pie is destined to become a regular in my kitchen. It was so much fun to make, and since the leftovers in my fridge change every week, I don't think this dish will ever be boring.
Local ingredients in my pie:
- butternut squash
- white beans
- swiss chard
