Homity Pie is a simple, homely, and nutritious bake just like a great big hug in pie form! It is a vegetarian open pie packed with potatoes, spring onions, leeks, and cheese, and is delicious served either with a green salad or a medley of your favourite vegetables.
The first time that Mr E & I came across Homity Pie, I seem to recall, was some three or four years ago whilst having lunch in a lovely vegetarian tea room / cafe in the market town of Skipton one chilly November day. It was listed on the specials board, 'homity pie served with seasonal vegetables'. Neither of us had heard of it, but after quizzing the waitress Mr E quickly decided that that was for him.
You see, Mr E loves his potatoes and Homity Pie is packed full of the humble potato. They're certainly the star of the show. But with a few other basic ingredients, of onions, cheese and parsley, this vegetarian open pie is transformed into a delicious and nutritious family feast.
