Recipe: Crustless Quinoa Veggie Pie



 



Summary: This dish comes together quickly and you can eat it for any meal of the day, or as a snack.

Inspiration for this recipe comes from Eating Alive


 

 

Ingredients

 

 

1 Cup quinoa, cooked (about 1/3 cup uncooked, rinsed and boiled for 12 minutes in 2/3 cup of water)

1 head of fresh broccoli, about 2 Cups florets, steamed for 2-3 minutes

4 large eggs, I use organic, free range eggs

1/3 Cup milk or dairy free substitute of choice

1/2 Cup Asiago cheese, grated, or cheese of choice

1 small carrot, grated, about 1/2 Cup

1 Tbsp green onion, chopped (optional)

1 garlic clove, minced

1/2 tsp oregano

1/4 tsp sea salt

1 small ripe red tomato, cut in thin strips and then in half, used to garnish a pinwheel pattern on top



 

Instructions

 

Preheat oven to 350º F. Lightly butter or oil a 9 inch pie pan, or two 20 ounce ramekins, or 4 individual ramekins.

Prepare the broccoli and quinoa, set aside to cool.

Add eggs to a medium bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Stir in the milk. Add grated cheese, carrot, green onion (if using), garlic, oregano, and salt. Add the cooled broccoli and quinoa, stir until well mixed.

Spoon the mixture into prepared pan(s). Arrange the tomato strips in a pinwheel shape on top.

Bake at for 25 to 30 minutes, 20 to 25 for smaller ramekins, or until the eggs set. You can put the pies under the broiler for a minute or two to brown the top.



 

Variations

 

This veggie pie is also good with asparagus, or cauliflower in place of the broccoli.

You can use red pepper strips in place of the tomato slices on top.
