  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  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.

Footnotes

  • 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.
