  • 1/2 cup chopped cauliflower
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrot

    I really liked this recipe. Didn't think the hubby would like it as well as he did. I served it like a quiche with salsa on the side. I have since made it with balsamic rice and brown rice and they were good too.

    I made this with whole grain rice for the crust. Wow, what a good dish. The cheese just finishes it off.
