Homity pie is a traditional British open vegetable pie. The pastry case contains a filling of potatoes and an onion and leek mixture, which is then covered with cheese.
It has a history that dates back to the efforts of the Land girls of the Second World War and the restrictions imposed by wartime rationing.
