Deep Dish Potato and Pumpkin Pie26 Reviews
“A uniquely different vegetarian pie. Can also be made with a 2 pound butternut squash. Fresh thyme can be replaced with 1 teaspoon of dried thyme.” - by Jen
Original recipe yields 1 deep dish pie
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
- Split the pumpkin in half, spoon out the seeds and place the pumpkin halves face down on a baking sheet. Split the potatoes lengthwise and place on the pan with the pumpkin. Bake the pumpkin and potatoes for 1 hour. Remove them from the oven and let them cool. When the pumpkin has cooled, spoon out the flesh and put it into a large bowl. Cut the potato into 1/2 inch cubes.
- To make the dough in a food processor fitted with a steel blade, put the flour and salt into the processor. Add the butter. Run the machine in spurts until the butter is in bits no bigger than pea-size. Add 4 tablespoons ice water, and run the machine in spurts again just enough to bring the dough together. Turn the dough onto a work surface and knead it with your hands until the dough is soft and smooth, handling the dough as little as possible. Form it into a flattened ball. Chill the dough for at least 30 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). On a floured surface, roll out the dough, and use it to line the bottom and sides of either a 9 inch square baking pan or a large deep dish pie pan. Pierce the dough with a fork in three places. Line the sides of the pan with aluminum foil, and crimp the foil gently to hold the dough in place.
- Bake the crust for 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). While the crust bakes, make the filling.
- Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions, and cook them, stirring frequently, until they soften, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, and cook for 3 to 4 minutes more, stirring frequently. Add the corn and cook for 2 more minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat.
- Stir in the pumpkin, potato, cheese, thyme, allspice, salt, and pepper. Mix well, then spoon into pre-baked pie shell.
- Bake the pie at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes or until veggies and cheese are piping hot. Serve immediately.

"Delicious! I didn't even bother with a crust at all - I just made the filling and dumped it into a 9" square baking pan. It was much lower in fat, calories and carbs that way, and my boyfriend and I ..." See moreboth enjoyed it a lot. I had a large pumpkin already, so wasn't sure how much to use in the recipe. I ended up using about 1 pound of cooked pumpkin, and about 1 1/2 pounds of potatoes - it was just right for the 9" pan. The thyme really gave the dish a great flavor, and it was nice to have a non-sweet use for pumpkin!"
"My son wanted to take this in his lunch the next day! I thought the crust was very boring for this - next time I would use a cheddar, spinach or nut crust...." See more"
"Unlike some previous reviewers, I like the taste an oven baked crust gives to a pie like this. I used a ready made crust, which was fine, but wouldn't mind substituting a jazzier one. The flavor was..." See more great, you could taste everything individually and together. It isn't much for the eye (hence the 4 stars), so I will probably add something with a splash of green next time. Also, for vegetarians, the protein levels aren't wonderfully high, so some tofu marinated in a tofurkey seasoning mixture might be a good add, or perhaps some shelled edamame? I will continue to play with this, it's worth it. Thanks Jen!"
