This week, EDF is all about canning (we know it seems early to start thinking about the end of summer, but we'd just like to hold on to it for as long as we can!). However, storing up all those fruits means that our videos are pretty heavy on the sweet side. But, we know, you still need dinner. Feeling inspired by today's berry hand pies, we're offering up our 8 favorites savory pies and tarts. Served as a gorgeous main course or an elegant snack, these stunners provide a welcome break from your run-of-the-mill sandwiches. Check out our favorites below.
Tomato-Ricotta Tart: Have leftover tomatoes? Fabulous for all three meals, this tomato tart has a flaky and buttery crust that is topped with roasted goodness on a creamy pillow of melted ricotta cheese. Serve with a simple salad, and you’ve got yourself a winner.
Spinach Pie: Flaky phyllo and the vitamins-and-minerals punch of spinach makes this pie a taste and nutrition powerhouse. It'll serve both as a stylish dinner-party starter or even a vegetarian main course for the family.
