A fun twist on a quiche – carrot zucchini goat cheese pie with slices of plantains as the crust.
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.Print
