By baking this pie, you create a whole meal, which is ready to be sliced and shared with friends and family. As we eat together, we remember the importance of community. Take time to sit down for dinner with others. Silently savor the flavors for a few moments. Talk about them together. Feel the support that can come from sharing food with companions. This connection can provide true nourishment.
Here's a simple pie crust recipe made with leftover grains.
2 cups whole grain spelt flour or rice flour
½ cup leftover brown rice, quinoa, millet or oatmeal
1 teaspoon salt
Make a well in the center of the bowl and add:
¼ cup water
¼ cup vegetable oil (I like organic sunflower oil)
Incorporate all ingredients together and add a splash of water of needed. Dough needs to be firm enough that you can pick it up with your hands and shape it into a flat disc.
>>Caramelized onions and collard greens
To achieve a flaky crust, bake your pie at 425 degrees for the first 20 minutes and then lower oven temperature to 375 degrees for the next 20 to 30 minutes.
