Carrot Crust Broccoli Quiche

Broccoli pesto quiche made with a carrot-based crust is a delicious and colorful gluten-free version of quiche.

Ingredients

  • Crust:
  • 3 cups shredded carrots
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt substitute (such as No Salt(R))
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Filling:
  • 2 small heads broccoli, shredded
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup pesto sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt substitute (such as No Salt(R))

  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, or to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

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.
