    1 hr 40 mins


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Blend carrots, canola oil, onion, 1 teaspoon salt substitute, and pepper together in a blender until smooth. Whisk water and cornstarch together in a bowl until cornstarch is dissolved; add to carrot mixture and blend until smooth. Pour carrot mixture into a 1 1/2-quart casserole dish and press into a 'crust' shape.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until crust is dry and firm, about 20 minutes.
  4. Whisk broccoli, eggs, pesto, and 1 teaspoon salt substitute together in a bowl until smooth; pour over the carrot crust.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until set in the middle, 40 to 45 minutes. Cool quiche for 25 minutes and top with Parmesan cheese.

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Use a paper towel to pat shredded carrots until completely dry, then add them to the other crust ingredients.
  • The broccoli could be substituted for a dry ingredient (such as tofu, green pepper, firm cheeses). Wet ingredients (such as tomatoes, sliced meat, cottage cheese) alter the filling.
  • Perhaps reducing the 3 eggs to 2 eggs will give a firm filling after 45 minutes of baking?
  • Any variety of cheese can be used for the topping.

Needed maybe a little more spices in the filing but pretty good. It was very simple to make and I found it opposite of what the other rate was it wasn't messy at all and texture was great. Thank you

I made the crust only to make a savory pie. It made 1 large pie crust and was very liquid. I piled the mixture in the center and used the back of a spoon to spread it to the edge, then used 2 fingers together to gently work it thinner and up the side. While more nutritious and tasty than grain flour crusts, this was messy.
