Mediterranean, Pie

Cheese pie with Mediterranean salad

Cheese pie is very yummy and goes well together with Mediterranean flavors of olives, tomatoes and pine nuts. Soybean flour gives a tasty and protein rich pastry.

Serves 4-5

Pastry

1.25 dl curd
75 g butter
2 dl soybean flour
1.5 dl wholemeal flour

Heat the oven to 200 °C. Mix the ingredients for the crust, but mix in the water at last. Press the dough into a pie dish and pre-bake it in the oven for 10 minutes.

Bake the pie in the oven for about 25 minutes. Serve the pie with the cruchy salad (recipe below).
