Yellow & green courgette pie

Courgette Pie


It was on a sunny day of August that I beheld the accomplishment of my toils. With an anxiety that almost amounted to agony, I collected the instruments of baking around me, that I might infuse a spark of pie-ness into the lifeless thing that lay at my feet. It was already one in the afternoon; the sun pattered dismally against the panes, and my candle was nearly burnt out, when, by the glimmer of the half-extinguished light, I saw the dull yellow and green filling of the creature…

Marvel at the marbled marvellousness!

No food colouring was used  in the making of this pie.

I love that it looks savoury but isn’t! :) As for the taste, it’s quite similar to my pumpkin pie as I have used the same spices. The texture is different, as was to be expected. I have used more fromage frais and less cream because courgettes hold so much water. The filling is still quite wobbly, but then I didn’t even let it cool completely before I cut it. Who needs patience when they can have awesomeness!? :-P
