Sometimes leftovers are wonderful things. This spinach pie is a product of just that.
Brown Rice Crust
(Adapted from Vitamix)
2 cups (390gms) of cooked brown rice, cooled
salt and pepper

2/ 3 cup (100gms) french shallots or 1 medium brown onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 bunch silverbeet/spinach, white stem removed and roughly chopped
2 eggs, lightly beaten
½ cup parmesan cheese
½ cup dill chopped roughly
½ cup mint

Lightly grease a 23cm (9 inch) pie pan with olive oil
Mix cooked brown rice, eggs and salt and pepper together in a medium size bowl
Press into the prepared pan
Bake for 10 minutes in preheated oven
Remove from the oven and let rest until filling is ready
Heat a large non stick frypan over a medium heat
Cook the shallots until caramelised (browned)
Add the crushed garlic and stir well
Reduce the heat slightly and add the chopped spinach
Place a piece of foil over the pan to help the spinach sweat down (approx 10 mins)

Hey There, I’m Sherilyn the creator of Wholepromise. This is where I venture outside of being a mum, wife and Fertility Nurse Specialist. I live on the Sunshine Coast in Qld, Australia and am spoilt by year round access to Farmers Markets offering a plethora of local, seasonal and organic produce. In all Wholepromise is my style of food, it’s the food I want my boys to appreciate and it’s the food that makes me happy. Styling and photographing it is just another bonus.
