Spinach Pie

April 27, 2017

If I'm going to be honest with you, today just wasn't the best day for me! I generally try to stay positive but sometimes we all have a bad day and that's okay! Lucy just wasn't a happy girl and there wasn't much she wanted to do except cuddle in my arms. I think she may be teething so I can't blame her! I barely had time to do anything today and we were supposed to do our grocery shopping but I didn't want to drag her out of the house when she wasn't feeling well. So one good thing that came out of that is this recipe! I literally just had to make something up with whatever I had in the house and so this spinach pie was born! All I did was make a batch of tofu ricotta, sautéed some shallot, garlic, and frozen spinach, mixed them together, dumped it into a vegan frozen pie crust and baked it. I honestly wouldn't have had the energy for anything else after this day and it was quite a comforting dinner! The other positive I got out of this day was that I got a lot of snuggle time with my little love bug and I don't think anything beats that!
