Meatless Monday: Spiral Vegetable Pie

I saw a video for a spiral vegetable pie recipe on FoodRepublic.com and have been wanting to try it for awhile.  I made it my own by substituting the puff pastry shell for a cauliflower crust and adding a roasted red pepper goat cheese layer.  It turned out to be one of my favorite Meatless Monday recipes so far!  I hope you give it a try.  

2 Large Carrots

1 Large Zucchini

1 Large Squash

(try to find veggies that are equal in size)

1 Eggplant

2 TBSP Parmesan Cheese

2 TBSP Sharp Cheddar Cheese

EVOO

Preheat oven to 375

Salt, Pepper, Garlic Salt, Onion Powder, and Herbes de Provence to taste

To being, you will make “cauliflower bread”.  HERE is the recipe that I originally made into cauliflower grilled cheeses, but follow along the recipe below.

Cut cauliflower into florets

Place florets in food processor and pulse until the consistency of fine crumble

Pour crumble (aka cauliflower rice) into a microwave safe dish that has a lid

Microwave for 4-5 minutes

Line a kitchen towel with a few paper towel sheets 

Once cauliflower rice has cooled, pour onto kitchen towel  

Ring cauliflower to remove excess water

Pour cauliflower into a bowl, crack egg, add spices (Salt, Pepper, Garlic Salt) and Parmesan and cheddar cheeses

Stir until mixed thoroughly

Spray a pie tin with cooking spray and pour mixture into tin

Bake in oven for 35-45 minutes or until cauliflower crust begins to brown (you may have to cover with tin foil to ensure it will not burn)

While the crust cools, combine goat cheese, roasted peppers, and lemon juice in food processor
