Three squash pie

Here is a gourmet and colorful recipe, but above all full of good things to keep you going during this late winter. We have to admit that February is the middle of the cold season, and that sometimes, when the rainy days follow one another, it becomes a bit long. But hearts up! This melt-in-your-mouth, crispy, veggie-packed pie is going to give you a boost like you didn't even hope for.

A healthy pie without looking like one

Okay, most of the time when you think quiche, you don't necessarily think fitness. With this one, you can. First, because its yogurt and ricotta filling is lighter than others. Second, because the dough contains chickpea flour, a legume rich in vegetable protein. And finally, because with nearly a pound of squash artfully spread on top, you hit the beta-carotene jackpot. How about it? Convinced? Honestly, even if you don't like squash, you'll love it. I swear!

(this pie is without meat, I do not aim at anyone)
