We started the first few weeks of our vegetable CSA with a heaping pile of Swiss chard so I decided to cook it all at once in this paleo pie.
If you are part of The Paleo Porn Family you have already had this recipe in your possession for a couple months. That’s about how long it takes for me to take dishes from our table to here, where I can share it with all of you. :)
Why A Savory Pie?
With all the fruit available during the summer, I’m sure you’re up to your eyeballs in possibilities for fruit pies. But have you considered making a savory pie?
If you’re new to Swiss chard, give this recipe a try. It’s a great way to get those dark leafy greens on your menu.
When To Serve Paleo Pie?
This dish is quite versatile in that you can eat it any time of day. I prepared this at night and served it for dinner right out of the oven.
You can store any leftovers in the fridge. It tastes great cold so you can even serve it as a grab-and-go Paleo breakfast. It’s easy enough to warm up which means it’s also convenient to pack for lunch.
How Long Does It Take?
I’m not a fan of dishes that take a long time to prepare. You might be a little taken aback while making the crust. After all, this is not your typical pie.
I prepped everything for the crust in my food processor and I think you’ll be surprised at the consistency. Rather than rolling it out, just press it into the pan and on top of your filling and you’re all set! Don’t be alarmed, the non-doughy-like-consistency will solidify once baked in the oven. :)
All you have to do for the filling is chop up some veggies, stir them up in a skillet and voîla. You have one nutritious pie!
