Ground provision pie is a great way to use any extra ground provisions you have in your kitchen. Provisions and saltfish is a popular combination in Trinidad so why not add some saltfish to the ground provision pie?
It’s a tasty and easy dish to make!
YIELD: 9×9 baking dish
- 3 lbs ground provision (you can use any type and any quantity)
- 1/2 lb saltfish
- 3 tbsp green seasoning
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 pimentos, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1/2 tsp JGM Products cayenne pepper
- 1 cup evaporated milk
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp margarine or butter
- Cheese (as you like)
- Peel provisions and boil until tender.
- Soak or boil saltfish for a few minutes to get rid of any excess salt. The length of time can vary depending on the type of saltfish. I usually taste a piece after a few minutes of boiling/cooking to determine how much longer it needs to be boiled/cooked.
- Once the provisions are cooked through properly, place them in a bowl and mash them up until there are no more chunks.
- Break saltfish into small pieces and add to the mashed provisions.
- Add all other ingredients listed above and mix well to ensure everything is nicely incorporated.
- Place mixture into a greased baking dish. Top with cheese as you like.
- Bake at 375degrees for 35-40 minutes.
- Allow pie to cool before cutting.
- Enjoy your ground provision and saltfish pie.
- You can eliminate the cheese if you like. I don’t usually add any to the mixture. I only put some as the topping but it’s all up to you.
- The type of provisions used doesn’t have to be fixed. You can use any combo that adds up to roughly 3 lbs. Having a kitchen scale comes in handy for this purpose.
- You can eliminate the egg. You can instead add some flour to the milk or add lots of cheese.
