Ingredients

Scale

Main ingredients:

Sautéed vegetables:

Shrimp: (optional)

  • 1/2 pound sautéed or steamed shrimp, chopped into bite-size pieces

If you make your own whole-wheat pie crust:


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Press pie shell into a 9-inch pie plate. If you’re making homemade pie crust, see the instructions below.
  3. Clean and chop asparagus and onions (or whatever vegetables you choose).
  4. Sauté vegetables in extra virgin olive oil and garlic, approximately 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  5. In a large bowl, beat eggs. Brush a small amount of egg mixture in the pie shell. Add cottage cheese, nutmeg, basil, tarragon, salt and pepper to egg mixture. Mix to combine. (If you like spicy, add a little cayenne pepper.)
  6. In a separate bowl, combine cheddar cheese and arrowroot flour.
  7. Evenly spread sautéed vegetables and shrimp onto pie crust.
  8. Evenly layer cheese and arrowroot mixture on top of vegetables. Pour egg mixture on top.
  9. Bake on the middle rack for 40-50 minutes or until set. Insert a knife near the center of the pie. If the knife comes out clean, your pie is done. Allow quiche to set for 10 minutes before cutting into it. NOTE: The size of your pan will affect the cooking time. If you use a pie plate that is deeper or larger than a standard pie plate, you will need to adjust the bake time accordingly.

Homemade pie crust:

  1. In a 9-inch pie plate, combine all crust ingredients and mix them with a fork or your hands. If using a fork, use hands to finish mixing ingredients together.
  2. Form the dough into a ball in the pan. Press it into the pan evenly, bringing it up on the sides. Pinch the dough around the top of the pie plate with your finger or a fork.
