Tomato-Corn Pie



Makes 8 servings

Active Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours





Ingredients

Crust
3/4 cup whole-wheat pastry flour (see Note)
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
5 tablespoons cold water

Filling
3 large eggs
1 cup low-fat milk
1/2 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
2 medium tomatoes, sliced
1 cup fresh corn kernels (about 1 large ear; see Tip) or frozen
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Preparation
1.To prepare crust: Combine whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a large bowl. Make a well in the center, add oil and water and gradually stir them in to form a soft dough. Wrap the dough in plastic and chill in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
2.Preheat oven to 400°F.
3.Roll the dough into a 12-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Transfer to a 9-inch pie pan, preferably deep-dish, and press into the bottom and up the sides. Trim any overhanging crust. Line the dough with a piece of foil or parchment paper large enough to lift out easily; fill evenly with pie weights or dry beans. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove the foil or paper and weights. Let cool on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes or up to 1 hour.
4.To prepare filling: Whisk eggs and milk in a medium bowl. Sprinkle half the cheese over the crust, then layer half the tomatoes evenly over the cheese. Sprinkle with corn, thyme, 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper and the remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Layer the remaining tomatoes on top and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Pour the egg mixture over the top.
5.Bake the pie until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 40 to 50 minutes. Let cool for 20 minutes before serving

French Pork Roast
1 (5 pound) pork rib roast
2 cloves garlic, slivered
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped carrots
2 parsley sprigs
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
1 tablespoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
Chopped parsley
1 can condensed chicken broth
3 pounds medium potatoes, pared and sliced thin
1 cup chopped onion

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Wipe pork roast with damp paper towel. Rub outside of pork with cut slices of garlic.

Combine 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Rub over pork to coat well. Insert garlic slivers where possible in crevices in bone. Place pork fat side up in large shallow roasting pan without rack. Place 1/2 cup chopped onion, 1/2 cup chopped carrots and 2 parsley sprigs under pork roast. Roast uncovered for 1 hour.

Remove from pan. Pour off most of fat, leaving about 1 tablespoon in pan. Stir 2 tablespoons flour into pan. Gradually stir in 1 cup condensed chicken broth into flour mixture until well combined. Then stir in 3/4 cup water. Bring to boiling; reduce heat and simmer stirring to dissolve browned bits about 2 minutes.

Strain gravy through strainer into saucepan, discarding vegetables. Set gravy aside to reheat later. Return pork to roaster.

Gently toss sliced potatoes with 1 cup chopped onion and 1 tablespoon chopped parsley, 1tablespoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper to mix well. Arrange around roast.

Heat remaining chicken broth to boiling; pour over potatoes. Brush potatoes with melted butter. Reduce oven temperature to 400 degrees F, then roast pork 45 minutes to 1 hour longer or until temperature reaches 170 degrees F and potatoes are fork tender and nicely browned. Sprinkle potatoes with chopped parsley.

Serve pork and potatoes from roasting pan or baking dish. Reheat gravy.

Serves 8.
