Anyway, back to Fall colors. I always wonder what it'd be like to actually see the leaves change. When we lived in Hawaii, leaves didn't change but the Tide sure did. haha!
The summer trees start off with deep greens and browns.......
Then they turn to a golden yellow, orange, and lushish red..........
Yes, those are the REAL colorful LAYERS of FALL......
COLORFUL FALL PIE
-9 inch pie pan
-12 in brown rice tortilla or whole wheat tortilla
-1 cup black beans (drained and rinsed)
-garlic and black pepper (to taste)
-1 cup butternut squash (mashed)
-1 cup spinach (fresh or frozen but thawed)
-1/2 cup diced cherry tomatoes
-1/3 cup DAIYA mozzarella cheese or other cheese of choice
**Serves about 3 large or 4 medium slices.
oil up your pie pan and then place tortilla on the bottom. Part of the the tortilla should wrap up on the side of the pan as well (larger tortilla better for crust). Then add your layers. Start with the black beans, then spinach, add a little garlic to your beans and spinach. Spread your squash on top of the spinach and top with tomatoes, cheese, and black pepper. Bake in oven at 350F for about 18 minutes, maybe 20 if you have a slow oven. I then broiled it the last 5 minutes to give the cheese some golden gooey-ness (is that a word?). For extra spice, add a little chalula sauce on top!
Slice it up and serve with soup tomato soup. Perfect combo! Not sure how or why I thought of this dish but I must say....it was easy, fast, and most importantly TASTY!
So, have you experienced a real Fall? I know you CANADIANS have!
