You might not actually believe just how undercover healthy this spicy potato and leek filo pie is. A slice only clocks in at 349 calories. And vegan, of course. This would be the perfect meal to serve at a dinner party to all your friends that make fun of you for being vegan. I'll never eat good food again, they said.
I'll never get enough nutrients, they said. All the spice in my life is gone, they said. Disproved! I told you so! I know what I'm talking about! I CAN get enough nutrients without killing something! A vegan diet is healthier AND just as tasty as an omnivorous diet! I told you so. You're wrong. Okay. I feel better now.
Since we're on the subject of nutrition, this recipe is jam packed. As I said before, one slice of this pie is only 349 calories, but you get so much bang for your bites! One of the many perks of a vegan diet :)
Let's see here, per one slice of pie you're getting nearly a third of your daily needs for vitamin B-6, vitamin K1, and manganese. You can also check off a quarter of your daily needs for vitamin A, iron, potassium, fiber, and sodium. And what's, perhaps, the most important vitamin right now for our compromised immune systems? I've got you covered with this recipe, because just one slice of spicy potato and leek filo pie gives you over 90% of your daily dose of vitamin C! You're getting a lot more from this pie than just a warm and fuzzy feeling. Oh, and the best part: the fat you're consuming is that healthy kind of fat everyone talks about, and you're barely at 20% of your daily allotment for that seemingly achievable balanced diet. Stick around on the website, and you'll discover that a healthy and balanced diet is much more in reach than you thought.
This pie will leave you nourished, energized, and ready to tackle whatever is ahead. And give you bragging, I-told-you-so rights after your vegan dinner party.
