Broccoli Leek Pie
From Sarah Graddy, Gainseville, USA
As part of Virtual Chef - Birthday

Ingredients:

• 2 sticks celery, minced
• 2 leeks, sliced
• 1 medium-sized baking potato, diced
• 1 head broccoli, chopped (should be 2-3 cups)
• 2 cloves garlic, minced
• 1/2 cup white wine/cooking wine/sherry
• 3-ish tablespoons minced red onion
• 1 cup cottage cheese (we will use a crumbly Ricotta-like Turkish cheese)
• 1 egg
• 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of olive oil, or similar combination
• 1/2 – 1 cup grated Gruyere (swiss cheese)
• 1 – 2 tablespoons lemon juice
• A few tablespoons minced parsley
• Thyme, rosemary, tarragon, basil (about 1/2 teaspoon of each)
• Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:

plus pie crust ingredients, which I think are just salt, flour, and butter, although I might add wheat germ this time.
