Meatless Monday: Whipped Goat Cheese, Ricotta, and Tomato Pie

I spent the weekend with one of my best friends who was visiting from out of town. And it was wonderful. And guess what I didn’t do? I didn’t meal plan or grocery shop for the week. So I fully planned to order in tonight. But then this came together. And what do you know? It was pretty awesome. Totally simple, weeknight-friendly, and seasonal. All around win. Here you go. 

WHAT YOU NEED
* 1 prepared pie crust (or make your own, of course)
* 12oz goat cheese
* 1/2C ricotta cheese
* 3 egg whites
* 4 large ripe tomatoes
* salt
* freshly round black pepper
* dried thyme
* olive oil
* honey (trust me)

WHAT TO DO
Preheat the oven to 400F.

Spray a 9-inch pie dish with nonstick spray and transfer your crust into it.

Add the goat cheese, ricotta cheese, and egg whites to a food processor and while together.

While that’s spinning, slice the tomatoes and sprinkle generously with salt, black pepper, and thyme.

Build your pie: layer the cheese mixture into the crust; top with a layer of tomatoes; repeat. Finish with tomatoes on top.

Drizzle olive oil over the pie and bake for 40 minutes. Let the pie cool 3-5 minutes to allow it to set and then serve with a drizzle of honey. YES PLEASE. Enjoy!
