Savory Pie

Saturday was Savory Pie Day at Pasolivo Olive Oil in Paso Robles and here’s the recipe that we made at our workshop. We all agreed that it was a very yummy pie.

Summer Harvest

1/2 cup Pasolivo Olive Oil
1 medium large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic (more if you like)
1 eggplant, cubed
2 cups zucchini, cubed
1 sweet pepper, seeded and chopped
2 cups tomatoes, chopped
1 handful of fresh basil, chopped
Salt & Pepper to taste
2 t red wine vinegar
1 recipe for double crust pie dough

In a heavy frying pan, heat olive oil over medium heat.
Add onion and garlic and cook until the they are looking wilted (about 8-10 minutes).
Add eggplant and cook for another 5 minutes.
Then add zucchini, pepper and tomatoes, cover and cook for about 30 minutes until the vegetables have cooked down a bit. If there is too much liquid, remove cover and reduce.
Pour into an unbaked pie shell and finish with a lattice crust.
Brush with an egg yolk wash.
Chill the pie while you are preheating the oven to 475F.
Bake 10 minutes at 475 for 10 minutes. Turn down oven to 375 and bake for 20 minutes more.

    Made this yesterday (and a peach pie, too – found some at Trader Joes that at least SMELLED like peaches {G}) – but this savory pie was divine. I added some grated 4-cheese combo. Made it even better! I just need a bigger fry pan…. {G}

    Many years ago I learned pie baking from my Nana using Gravenstein apples from her yard in Port Orchard. Do you know where I can buy some and have them shipped to Louisiana? Thanks for your wonderful blog celebrating pie.

      I just saw some today at one of the growers at the West Seattle Farmers Market but I think it may be almost the last of the season as they an early variety of apple. There are some links to fruit growers on my website here. You might check out the websites and contact them directly to learn if they would have some to ship to you. I hope this helps. Thank you for checking in! Be Happy, Make Pie!
