Pie Crust for Pot Pie or Quiche


Savory Pie Crust

from ElanasPantry.com

You may have noticed that after discovering Elana’s recipes a few months ago, I have become a big fan of Elana’s website and her cookbook. Note also that I forgot to take the actual picture of the Savory Pie Crust with the herbs in it. This is her regular pie crust.

A favorite dish of mine before “healthy eating” (years ago actually) was Chicken Pot Pie. Elana has a great recipe for this and here is the crust she recommends for it.


1 1/2 cups blanched almond flour (Last year I didn’t know about blanched almond flour and found that the regular almond flour or almond meal doesn’t make any Paleo dish as light as the blanched does.)

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 tablespoon dry parsley

1/4 cup of coconut oil (This  and the use of dry parsley instead of a fresh green onion are actually the only things I changed on this recipe. Elana recommends grapeseed oil as well; so I changed three things.

1 tablespoon water

How to Make

Combine the flour, salt, baking soda and parsley in large bowl.

Whisk the oil and water in medium bowl.

Stir wet into dry mixture and mix thoroughly.

Press dough into a 9 1/2 9nch deep pie pan.

Bake 12 to 15 minutes.

Remove, cool, add filling.

Does anyone have a good Paleo Quiche Recipe? This crust would be delicious for a quiche.
