Veggie Tuesday

The flavors of the onions and the red peppers really bring out the taste of the broccoli. I enjoyed the crust on this bake it is thick and holds in the juices from the mushrooms. I used goat cheese but I think you could use Cheddar or Swiss cheese and it would melt better.

Broccoli Roasted Pepper Bake
two nine inch refrigerated pie crust
1 tablespoon melted butter
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 onion chopped
2 teaspoons olive oil
3 cups mushrooms
3 cups broccoli chopped small
1 cup low fat milk
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon sage
1 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup roasted red peppers
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese

Roll the two pie crusts together spread in bottom of spring form pan, 9 in with removable bottom. Turn up on edge about 1 inch clear around. Heat oil, add onion and garlic cook until nice and soft. Mix in mushrooms , broccoli, and roasted red peppers cook about five minutes.
Preheat oven to 400F. In large bowl combine eggs, milk, sage, thyme and red pepper flakes. Pour broccoli and mushrooms over pie crust spread evenly. Pour egg mixture over broccoli and spread crumbled goat cheese over top. Bake for 35 minutes or until knife comes out clean. Let cool 15 minutes cut and serve.
