Black Bean and Spinach Pie

Recipe by ILuvRecipes

The black beans in this pie are well hidden! I used light cream cheese and fat fee sour cream. We enjoyed it with some salsa and a dollop of sour cream.

WOW! This was surprisingly good! I knew I would like it because of all the ingredients, but wasn't sure if it would be too "healthy-tasting" for my hubby with all those great veggies in it. However, his words were "absolutely fantastic" and "a vegetarian delight that would please anyone!" :) It truly was delicious, and I am sorry it took me so long to review this for the hidden gems contest. We liked the biscuit-y crust and the creamy filling mixed in with the beans and veggies. I didn't mash the beans very well, and used yellow pepper in place of the green... and ALAS! I realized as I was making the recipe that I was out of pine nuts--but I am sure it would have been 6 stars with the pine nuts. :) Thank you so much for taking the time to create this recipe-I will definitely be making it again.
