Golden Cheddar Broccoli Pie

Ingredients that you need:

  • ½ cup blanched almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons solid coconut oil (not melted) or diced chilled butter
  • 1 cup half-and-half or cream
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups chopped steamed broccoli florets
  • ½ cup diced cooked onions
  • 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated Parmesan
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • olive oil spray

Spices:

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon dry mustard
  • dash of cayenne pepper, optional
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt

Preparation:

At first, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Lightly spray a 10-inch glass or ceramic baking pan with olive oil spray.

In a medium-large bowl, add almond flour, coconut oil, salt, and baking powder.  Using a pastry or dough cutter, cut the coconut oil into the flour mixture until it is evenly distributed and resembles crumbs.  Then add half-and-half (or a cream), eggs, pepper, and dry mustard and whisk until blended.

Spread broccoli in the bottom of pie dish. Scatter with cooked onions and top with shredded Cheddar cheese.  Pour liquid mixture evenly over the top of the broccoli/onions and sprinkle with Parmesan.  Bake for about 40-45 minutes until golden brown and done. Cool about 5 minutes before cutting.

Note:  When you pour the liquid mixture over the solid ingredients, it may appear like there isn’t enough, but it will puff up and surround the ingredients as it bakes.
