Warming Autumn Homemade Pie
Updated: Jun 18
120 grams of Quinoa Flour
80 grams of Chickpea Flour
20 grams of sesame seeds
Bring to the boil 100ml of water and 100ml of olive oil (in same pot)
Once boiled - mix the dry batter into the wet and turn stove off.
Mix and mix till well combined - it should resemble a cookie type batter - come together and stick well, some quinoa flours require a splash more of water so if its not sticking just add a spash of water and or oil to combine.
Then press into a lined baking tray - in this case I used my pie dish but you could do a rectangular one also.
I added Italian spice mix, paprika and parsley flakes to the mix and salt and pepper to taste. *
**TIP - while you are getting the next step ready ( vegetables ) pop the base in the oven (drizzle with some olive oil first) for a good 10 minutes on 180 degrees celcius to make it prepped and more crispy for the finished product!
Chop up two red onions and saute in a drizzle of olive oil, dash of paprika and some rosemary
be-careful not to burn!
I burnt it the first time round for this dish as you can see the mess around the pan!
I had to start again or my dish would taste smoky!
2 cups of your desired vegetable to use in the pie - boil up till soft and cut into desired chunks.
The options are limitless here - seriously you could call it empty the fridge pie!
Zuchinni and Squash would also be delicious!
In this case my husband wanted potatoes (lets be honest, he always wants potatoes) also its the only thing we had in the house before our vegetable box delivery so I made do.
You can see I didn't peel them as they were organic potato and the skins are packed full of nutrients!
I would usually do a combo of veg - Pumpkin and sweet potato would also be fab!
Add the onion and cooked veg, then season to whatever tickles your fancy!
Here I did rosemary and salt/pepper. The options are really limitless though, don't be afraid to experiment!
Beat 3 large eggs and pour over the top of the veg.
You can then add your desired choice of cheese, goats is good, parmesan too.
or if vegan or lactose intolerant you can opt for a cashew cheese which I did here!
If don't eat eggs - you could also substitute with chia instead of the eggs - simply get three tablespoons of black or white chia and mix with 1/2 a cup of water - let sit for about 4 minutes till it forms a "glug" - then pour over batter the same way you would with eggs!
I hope you enjoy this autumn goodness packed full of nutrients!
