A New Way to Fill and Seal Potpie
Eating pie for dinner doesn't necessarily have to derail your healthy efforts. There are two keys to making the meal better for you: First, ditch the meat and potatoes for a hearty, healthy mix of carrots, shiitake mushrooms, pearl barley and white beans; and, second, swap in phyllo dough for the usual pie pastry; it's a quicker, flakier and lighter alternative to a butter-heavy dough. It even comes in a whole wheat version, which you can find in specialty and health-food stores.
