Green pie with asparagus is a tasty and nutritious dish, ideal for vegetable lovers. The dough is made from whole-grain flour with the addition of dry nettles, which gives it a special nutritional value and taste. The filling is rich with vegetables such as zucchini, spring onions, asparagus, leeks, and spinach, enriched with a creamy tofu dressing and cashews. Pita is easy to prepare, full of vitamins and minerals, and an excellent choice for a light lunch or dinner. It is served slightly chilled with a fresh salad, which further emphasizes its freshness and taste.
