Crustless Greens Pie

Crustless Greens Pie (serves six)

1 1/2 lbs Swiss chard
1/2 lb arugula
3/4 lb dandelion greens
1 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 small yellow pepper, finely chopped
2 small zucchini (about 12 lb [sic] grated)
…must be a misprint for 1/2 lb…or not? gardeners know how fast
“small” zucchini grow if you take your eyes off them for a moment)
1/3 cup chopped fresh basil
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
3 extra-large eggs, lightly beaten (I suppose this would be
equivalent to 4 regular-sized large eggs)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup grated Swiss cheese

Trim the greens, discard stems, and chop leaves. Heat butter in a
saucepan and cook onion and garlic until tender. Stir in yellow
pepper, chard, arugula, dandelions, zucchini, basil, parsley, salt
and black pepper, and cook, covered, until very tender, about 15
minutes. Remove cover and cook, stirring, for another 25 minutes
until all liquid is evaporated. Transfer to bowl and cool
slightly. Beat the eggs into this mixture and pour into a 9-inch
glass or ceramic pie plate. Sprinkle with cheeses and bake at 375 F
for 25 minutes, then let stand at least 10 minutes before serving.

Notes: (1) Cooking the greens mixture 25 minutes seems pretty long–
I’d watch them carefully during this period, and be ready to shorten
it if they dry out sooner.

(2) The original recipe had 1 extra touch you might like to add if
making this as non-complimentary; 1/4 cup fresh bread crumbs sauteed
in 2 Tbsp butter until golden, then sprinkled on right at the end,
on top of the cheeses, just before putting the pie to bake.

Mexican Enchiladarole

This is a very versatile recipe that is great if you want to make
a nice meal that doesnt take alot of time. If you have the extra
time you can roll the ingredients up in a traditional enchilada
shape. Usually I do that, but when in a hurry, I just layer it all
like you would with lasagna, it comes out great in half the time!!!
It’s versatile because you can use ingredients that you have on hand,
or are available at your store, and as you will see, the quantities
can be changed, it comes out great almost no matter what you do!

Sauce Mix:
~0~ 1 small can tomato paste
~0~ 2 cups water
~0~ 1 pkg Lawrys Enchilada Sauce mix
To save yourself some grief by avoiding lumps, mix the water and tomato
paste *Before* you add the enchilada sauce mix. I do it with an
old-fashioned hand-cranked mixer, but you can also mix it in a blender,
a food processor, or even with a fork or spoon.

Mix the powdered enchilada mix in and put on stove on low heat.

Filling Mix:
~0~ 1 pkg thawed/unfrozen/defrosted (or 1 or 2 cups) (or 1, 1-1/2, or 2 lbs)
Veggie Crumbles (aka: soy protein veggie ground round). If your store doesnt
carry veggie crumbles/ground round, you can substitute a similar qty of
veggie/garden burger patties all chopped up to look like ground crumbles.
~0~ 1 small can diced green chilis
~0~ 1 small can diced black olives
~0~ 1 pkg Lawrys taco seasoning mix (Lawry’s is my favorite but you can
use others)
~0~ 10 or 20 shakes Schilling/McCormick Mexican Seasoning
~0~ 1 onion chopped up (optional)
~0~ 2 cloves garlic (optional) (you can peel them and shred using the
small holes (parmesan grater) on your cheese grater – it’s much easier
than chopping or using a garlic press)
~0~ Leftovers (optional) add your refrigerator leftovers such as chopped
tomatoes (with or without the juice) chopped onions, any variety of
vegetables – chop them up kind of small)

Mix it all up good – no need to heat, the veggie crumbles are cooked and
everything else will cook in the oven

Directions:
Spread a little of the sauce on bottom of a casserole pan (about 1/3 or
enough to cover the pan)
cover with layer of corn tortillas (overlapping to leave no openings)
top that with the veggie crumble mix
top that with grated non-dairy sharp cheddar and/or monterey jack cheese
(about a pound)
add another layer of corn tortillas to cover it
spread the rest of the sauce on top

bake for 20 minutes
top with a handful of the grated non-dairy cheese
back in the oven until top cheese is melted

let sit for 15 minutes to set

serve with coca-cola (not pepsi!) in tall glasses with four large ice
cubes each
