Super green pie (with chickpea crust)

Thanks to Ma for the recipe for this superfood pie, and pics – love your work!

This is a nutritious and yum take on the traditional quiche – but all whole food, dairy, gluten and sugar free – and full of veggies, good protein from the chickpeas, fat from the eggs, carbs from the veggies and rice flour. ┬áThe crust on this pie is so versatile – you could vary the filling – make it your own!

Chickpea crust

1.5 cups of cooked chickpeas or one can well rinsed
quarter cup brown rice flour
2T tapioca flour
3/4 t baking powder
2T Olive oil
good pinch of salt

Whizz chickpeas then add rice flour, tapioca flour, baking power mix well then add salt and oil. Gently press into a lightly oiled baking dish. Cook on 160C for approx 8mins no longer than 10minutes (you just need the base to set in order to hold the filling if you over cook it, it will harden and then crack (filling leaks out!)

Filling
2 cloves of garlic
1 onion
3 T olive oil
5 eggs
1/2 cup almond milk (or milk of your choice)
Good handful of spinach
1 courgette
1 carrot
handful of fresh herbs (eg parsley, coriander or basil)…or combination of these
salt and pepper
1 tsp tumeric
1/2 tsp cumin
3 tomatoes or 1cup of cherry tomatoes

Whizz garlic and onion (or finely chop), add olive oil, saute.
Whizz eggs, milk, add finely grated courgette, carrot and herbs ( I blitz in thermomix). Mix in garlic and onion, spices and season with salt and pepper. Pour into crust, top with sliced tomatoes.
Cook 180 C for approximately 45 mins.

Enjoy with fresh salad and a selection of raw vege sticks with homemade hummus
