Hunza Pie

Hunza Pie is one of the popular entrees eaten by the Hippies in the 60's and still can be found on menus in Vegetarian restaurants. It is a myth that is was made by the Hunza in their isolated high mountain kingdom which is now part of Pakistan. The myth was created by a Swiss writer of a vegetarian cookbook. However, the Hunza diet is mostly almonds, apples, cherries, apricots, very little meat and a hard flat bread.
Most cooks and resturants in the United States make it in a pie crust, usually made with whole wheat.
