How delectable this pie looks! Sometimes I just crave Mediterranean dishes and there is something about the fresh ingredients that go in their dishes which I find very inspiring. I love the herbs and the distinct flavors Mediterranean food encapsulates. This spinach and goat cheese pie I made follows the recipe of spanakopita with a few variations. Spanakopita is a delicious savory pie made of perfectly crispy layers of phyllo dough and a flavorful filling of spinach, herbs and feta nestled in. It’s a very famous dish around the globe. I have tried spanakopita in a couple of restaurants and have also tried making it myself twice. I have noticed a few things along the way, the major one being that I am not very fond of the strong and salty taste of feta and also that the pie should have enough amount of herbs to get that bright and refreshing flavor out. I learned lessons from trial and error, and modified my recipe to create a fail proof pie with a filling of spinach and goat cheese that is so flavorful and rich you’ll wonder why you waited so long to make it a part of your home cooking repertoire.

Sweet, juicy and delicious summer corn is everywhere! I see tall piles of locally grown corn whenever I go to the farmers market. However sadly with we heading towards fall, there are just a few days left for us to enjoy sinking in our teeth into a earful of plump kernels bursting with flavors. I usually like grilling the corn and slathering it with some roasted garlic spread or having it grilled with some olive oil, salt and pepper or at times I just like adding some boiled corn into my bowl of salad for that purest and sweetest taste. But I wanted to try something different and found a very cool way to use corn. Lately I having been making pizzas at home quite often with loads of greens and veggies. So I decided to use grilled corn as the main topping for my pizza along with some onions, zucchini, goat cheese and kale pecan pesto as a sauce. Continue reading “CHARRED CORN PIZZA”
