VEGETABLE PIE (PASTEL DE VERDURAS)

Pastel de Verduras is a very delicious tapas that you can find in local bars or Spanish families’ kitchens. (You can never see it in touristic bars/restaurants)

It contains very little amount of oil but loads of vegetables and protein. Not containing any gluten is another bonus of this pie. Besides, you can enjoy it during a Sunday brunch.
