Sweet Potato, Carrot, & Broccoli Quiche in a Cauliflower Crust
Ah, life with two kids. It’s easier than I expected, to be honest! Annabelle is just over 6 weeks, and Alexander is turning into a big brother now. He finally enjoys his little sister, which is nice to see. Sure he thinks she’s playing sometimes when she flinches or kicks, and he plays back. And he thinks it’s hilarious. That’s fun.
We’re also in the middle of our second round of Whole30. So this quiche is Whole30 compliant. I’ve never worked with a cauliflower crust before, and I figured now is as good a time as any. I know that people use cauliflower to make a pizza crust, so I found a recipe for that online and just made it work for a quiche. I don’t want to make a pizza crust because, well, if I can’t have real pizza then I just don’t want an almost-pizza, you know?
I’ve got the recipe below as an IMAGE as well as text, so feel free to save that image to your phone, or PIN it (you can pin it by clicking the picture at the bottom).
CAULIFLOWER CRUST QUICHE
Good 6 months up, unless baby can’t have eggs
- 1 head of cauliflower
- 6 eggs
- 1/4 cup milk (I used almond)
- vegetables of choice: I used 2 small sweet potatoes, 2 carrots, and about 8 raw broccoli florets.
- Chop and then process the cauliflower in a blender or food processor.
- Microwave 5 minutes to draw out moisture.
- While that cools, preheat the oven to 450F.
- And prep your veggies by peeling, chopping, and sauteing them until tender.
- Use a rag or cheese cloth or fine mesh strainer to wring out all the moisture from the cauliflower.
- Beat in 1 of the eggs and press the mixture into a greased pie pan.
- Bake it for 15 minutes.
- Lower the temp to 375F.
- Combine the other 5 eggs, veggies, and milk and pour it into the pie crust.
- Bake for 25 minutes.
You can make the crust ahead of time, or make the whole thing and fridge or freeze it until you want to eat it. If you freeze it, be sure to cover it with plastic wrap first (or use one of those food saver bags that sucks out all the air!).
