Update: Congratulations, Cathy, the winner of this giveaway! Cathy told us it was a challenge to write just one favorite pie, but decided on “coconut cream, when it’s not French Silk Chocolate:)”
Exactly one week from today—October 25—Cook without a Book: Meatless Meals is officially available. We’re celebrating its publication (and Meatless Mondays) today and next week with a giveaway and a recipe.
It wasn’t hard to decide this week’s recipe. On Saturday I attended Pie Party Live, a gathering of a scant one hundred food bloggers at Rodeo Bar and Grill in New York City. Entrance fee: one pie, savory or sweet. For a pie lover like me, it was heaven.
I checked the pre-party pie list and the bulk of offerings were sweet. Since the party started at noon, I took a savory turn making one of the vegetable galettes from Cook Without a Book: Meatless Meals.
It was a crisp fall day, and I had a head of cabbage in the vegetable bin and a butternut squash in the vegetable basket. I roasted them, along with an onion, to make Butternut Squash and Cabbage Galette. But as long as you’ve got pie dough you can make a galette whatever season you’re in with whatever vegetables you’ve got around.
It’s Monday, so let’s celebrate. In fact it’s the whole point of Cook Without a Book: Meatless Meals—to inspire us to eat less meat, better meat, and to help make our meatless days fun!
A couple of weeks ago I asked which meat or meaty dish would you have the most trouble giving up if you become vegetarian. I loved reading your responses! Bacon and burgers scored high.
This week’s question: What’s your favorite pie, savory or sweet? As usual, you’ve got until Wednesday night, October 19th and 9 PM ET to respond and we’ll announce the winner Thursday morning.

Sweet, pumpkin pie would probably be my favorite. And I just made one this weekend. Unless cheesecake is considered a pie…. then that would probably be my favorite. 🙂
I have a new favorite, it’s this Butternut Squash and Cabbage Galette, my husbands too! Thanks for bringing this galette to pie to pie party – it was my favorite!
Sweet – I’ll say pumpkin or apple, or cheesecake. Also something with chocolate and raspberries. Savory – something with chicken and mushrooms.
I’ve got an apple pie in the freezer and looking forward to pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving!

My favorite sweet pie has to be pumpkin dusted with plenty of fresh nutmeg!
Your savory galette looks delicious and something I have to try making for my friends.

Pecan Pie Cobbler – would that qualify as a pie? it has a two layer crust! and is to die for!
Sour Cream Lemon Pie….but sometimes I just LOVE the left over crust after making a pie.
I would have to say shepherd’s pie.
I love cherry pie! Made with sour cherries from my husband’s grandmother’s tree. Of course now it has to be gluten free. I have yet to attempt it
I think mine would be a summer squash and ricotta galette. I also love apple pie!
