French cuisine is known worldwide for its refinement but also for the richness of recipes offered for each dish type. Among the most popular French recipes are those for savory pies.
Those of you who do not know exactly what a savory pie means are invited to read more information below this section.
There are many kinds of savory pie and many of them contain meat or a combination of meat and vegetables. On this page, I share a recipe for a meatless savory pie, respectively a mushroom pie.
The recipe is a bit unusual for French gastronomy given that the French love to eat meat. I assume that there were recipes without meat for the fasting period or those that did not have meat at hand at some point.
This French mushroom pie recipe is very easy to prepare and requires only a few basic ingredients. I usually make it with Champignon mushrooms because they are found in abundance at almost any supermarket at a convenient price, but you can use almost any other species of fresh edible mushrooms.
Despite its simplicity and humble ingredients, the French mushroom pie recipe is very delicious. As a result, I often prepare it for my family and when I have guests I prepare it in double quantity because it disappears quickly from the plates!

A pie is a baked dish that is usually made of a pastry dough casing that contains a filling of various sweet or savory ingredients. Sweet pies may be filled with fruit (as in an apple pie), nuts (pecan pie), brown sugar (sugar pie), or sweetened vegetables (rhubarb pie). Savory pies may be filled with meat (as in a steak pie or a Jamaican patty), eggs and cheese (quiche), or a mixture of meat and vegetables (pot pie).
Pies are defined by their crusts. A filled pie (also single-crust or bottom-crust), has pastry lining the baking dish, and the filling is placed on top of the pastry but left open. A top-crust pie has the filling in the bottom of the dish and is covered with a pastry or other covering before baking. A two-crust pie has the filling completely enclosed in the pastry shell. Shortcrust pastry is a typical kind of pastry used for pie crusts, but many things can be used, including baking powder biscuits, mashed potatoes, and crumbs.
Pies can be a variety of sizes, ranging from bite-size to ones designed for multiple servings.Pie (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pie)
Mushrooms are a low-calorie food that packs a nutritional punch. Loaded with many health-boosting vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, they’ve long been recognized as an important part of any diet. For instance, mushrooms raised with exposure to ultraviolet light are a good source of Vitamin D, an important component in bone and immune health.
Lower Blood Pressure
Mushrooms are rich sources of potassium, a nutrient known for reducing the negative impact that sodium can have on your body. Potassium also lessens the tension in blood vessels, potentially helping to lower blood pressure.
Boost Immune System
The anti-inflammatory effect of mushrooms has been shown to greatly improve the efficiency of the immune system. Research has found that mushrooms help stimulate microphages in the immune system, enhancing its ability to defeat foreign bodies and making you less susceptible to serious illnesses.
Long and short-term studies alike have found that mushrooms, in combination with exercise and other lifestyle changes, can have an important impact on weight loss. For example, after being asked to substitute 20 percent of their beef consumption with mushrooms, research participants showed improvements in their BMI and belly circumference. The antioxidants in mushrooms are also thought to reduce the risk of hypertension and other metabolic disorders.Health Benefits of Mushrooms (https://www.webmd.com/diet/health-benefits-mushrooms#1)
