Cabbage Pie
1 large cabbage
1/2 pound of fresh mushrooms
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
salt and pepper
dash of soy sauce
2 unbaked pie crusts

Cut up the cabbage and lightly steam.
Saute the mushrooms, just enough to
get some of the moisture off. Place
1/4 inch edge of cream cheese on the
bottom of one unbaked pie crust. Place
about 1/2 inch layer of cabbage on top of
cream cheese. Next, put a similar layer of
mushrooms. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and
a dash of soy. Continue to alternate in this
manner until your pie crust is very full.
Place the second pie crust on top and
seal the edges. Cut vent holes in the top
crust and bake at 350 degrees for about
50 minutes or until the crust is brown
