Veggie Pie

When my kids were very small, and there were fewer of them, I used to make this dish often.  Somewhere along the line, I forgot about it.  A very sad thing, because this pie is healthy, easy and tastes great.  The recipe is lightly adapted from the Whole Foods for the Whole Family cookbook.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  1. This is a terrific recipe! It’s full of all sorts of great things! I would love to make this for my family. :0)

  2. Thanks for sharing – I made for the freezer and posted it on my blog! (linked to your site)

  3. What a grrrreat pie! Definitely going to make this for my family. :-)

  4. I’m wondering, Is whole wheat flour a must? Also, can I use Greek yogurt? Sometimes consistency is everything in a recipe. Thanks!

    • I’ve never used Greek yogurt with this, but I think it would be great. I’m not so sure about using white flour, but I think that will work too.
