Recipe by mum to liam
This pie has a gluten free crust and is perfect for vegetarians. It is from Super Foods Ideas March 2002. The crust can be used as a base to other pies, quiches, and frittatas. I used zucchini, pumpkin, broccoli, capsicum for the vegetables in this dish.
- 3⁄4 cup rice
- 1 1⁄2 cups hot water
- 3 eggs
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
- 2 cups of chopped vegetables (zucchini, pumpkin, broccoli, capsicum)
- 20 g rice flour
- 1 cup skim milk
- salt & pepper
- 60 g reduced-fat cheese, grated
