Healthy Vegetable Pie

The introduction of pies, and my favorite healthy vegetable pie, to the culinary world was a huge revelation!  The flavor combinations and ingredient choices left so much open to the imagination. I have enjoyed chicken pies, fruit pies, beef pies, vegetable pies, the choices are limitless. We could eat a pie every day for the next month and never eat the same ingredient twice. For this reason alone, I am a huge pie fan.  

Pairing a slice of pie with a nice little side salad makes for a heatlhy fulfilling meal that I would gladly serve to my family. Another bonus is being able to put ingredients together in a crust and clean up the kitchen while it cooks. When I am finished eating, all that remains are forks and plates. Can it get any easier?
