  • Author: Dana Carpender
  • Prep Time: 15
  • Cook Time: 20
  • Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 cups shelled almonds
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons water

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Coat a 10″ pie plate with non-stick cooking spray, or grease it well with coconut oil or butter.
  3. With the S-blade in place, put the almonds, Parmesan cheese, and salt in the food processor. Run until everything is about the texture of cornmeal.
  4. Add the coconut oil—no need to melt it—and pulse to cut it in.
  5. Then, with the processor running, drizzle in the water. When a dough ball forms—it’ll take only seconds—turn off the processor.
  6. Turn the dough out into the prepared pie plate, and press it into place, evenly across the bottom and all the way up the sides. It’s worth your time to work to get it nice and uniform.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes, then let it cool while you prepare your quiche filling.
