Asparagus and Leek Pie
I am absolutely not a baker, so if anyone else read the title of this recipe and was all excited about the idea of asparagus and leeks until you saw the word pie, stay with me for a minute. This Asparagus and Leek Pie from Andrea's Recipes is made with filo dough, a type of Greek pastry that you find in the freezer case at big grocery stores.
To use it, just thaw the sheets of dough and brush with melted butter between the layers, and when it comes out of the oven and you have your first bite, I know you'll be glad you were brave and made Asparagus and Leek Pie. This delightful vegetarian pie sounds perfect for a Meatless Monday lunch or dinner, and Andrea says it can also be eaten for brunch.
