This week I made this yummy savory pie for Gary to enjoy for lunch! So today’s recipe is husband approved!

I don’t know about you but I sometimes get lazy with making lunches for Gary. I try to make him lunches for each day of the week but sometimes I miss a few. I am always trying to find quick and healthy lunch ideas to make him. He likes a good sandwich but I know he enjoys it when I make him other things like bbq pizza or guacamole grilled cheese.

Now I’ve found another great lunch recipe to make him.

Carrot zucchini goat cheese pie with plantain crust.

Gary is very easy to make food for because he likes just about everything. I am thankful for having a husband that I can experiment recipes on and he eats them no matter what. I guess that comes with the job of being married to a food/recipe blogger.

We love the look of carrots and zucchini in this pie. The colors from the veggies really pop. But you can use any veggies you like! We were going to add in some kale but forgot. Maybe next time.

And using plantains as the crust was brilliant! I can’t believe I just now started doing it because it makes a super easy pie crust.

  5. Yum! Made this for lunch today for my husband and I with some modifications…

    #1 No goat cheese in this house- ugh- got food poisoning from it on a pizza 6 years ago while I was on crutches after very recent big toe fusion surgery (a ridiculous story all on it’s own started by an innocent trail run when we first moved to Idaho…)- absolute nightmare of vomiting and passing out and having to crawl to the bathroom plus we were in a hotel bc my husband had a training for work. Slightly traumatizing experience and I haven’t touched it since!

    So I used feta instead, sliced Idaho potatoes for the ‘crust’, purple carrots, zucchini and lightly sautéed spinach. No chives but added freshly roasted garlic.

    Made the house smell great and there’s one piece left for my husband for tomorrow. Also I love quiche and this was a great way to make it quick- I have no problem making traditional pastry crusts but they just add a whole additional level of prep time!

    Also, the day 2 workout was great! So thanks for that =-)
