Quick cook hack

If you are looking for the quick cook hack for making apple pie I’ve got you covered. This apple pie recipe works well with using store-bought ready-made pie crust. So if you’re in a rush or just don’t like to get your hands sticky rolling out pie dough, then just get your pie crust from the grocery store.

Vegan feta cheese substitute 

To replace feta cheese there are several options that all taste amazing. The quick easy option is to just buy a vegan feta cheese at the grocery store. It’s a simple approach and usually, the texture is very similar to real feta. 

Option 2: You can use soft vegan cashew cheese to replace feta cheese. It has a delicious creamy texture and a similar cooling property as regular feta.

Option 3: Using silken tofu is another great option and one of my favorites. Silken tofu is creamy, soft, and has much of the same crumbly texture as feta cheese. Just season with a little salt and oregano and it will taste amazing.

What kind of apples to use in apple pie

The type of apples you want to use really depends on your personal preference. I like to use green apples that have a more fresh and tart flavor, but if you prefer a sweeter tasting apple then that’s the type you should use. I always recommend using a firm apple that won’t turn to smush when it’s baked. But just choose your favorite apples and you can’t go wrong.

How to cook savory apple pie

This recipe is incredibly easy to make. After making the savory apple filling, you can bake the pie in a deep pie dish or any 2.5-3 inch casserole pan.

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400F and grease the pie dish. Place the pie crust in the greased pie dish and cover with tinfoil. Pre-bake the pie crust for 5 minutes and remove it from the oven. 
  • Heat olive oil in a non-stick pan and add the sliced apples and leeks. Season with curry powder, oregano, and thyme and mix together. Let the apples and leeks cook until the leeks start to soften. Remove from the heat and gently pour into the pie crust (after removing the tinfoil from the pie).
  • Use a spoon to spread the apples evenly out before pouring the plant milk on top. Drizzle lemon juice over and top with vegan feta cheese. 
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until the pie crust is baked all the way through.Serve with a garnish of fresh basil and a sauce of your choice (I like to use sweet and sour chili sauce).Enjoy.
