This is one of Mollie's suggested crusts for quiche. Of course it could be used for any other baked vegetable (or meat) pie.
Golden Vegetable Crust
15 min. to prepare; 40 minutes to bake
Yield: a 9- or 10-inch crust
"Special Guest Star: PARSNIP! This surprisingly sweet and mild vegetable is often underrated, if not overlooked altogether. Discover it here, and you might find yourself grating it into your salads as well."
a little butter or oil for the pan
2 packed cups grated yellow summer squash
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup grated carrot
1/2 cup peeled, grated parsnip
2 Tbs. olive oil or melted butter (plus extra to brush on top)
1/3 cup unbleached white flour
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9- or 10-inch pie pan.
2. Place the grated squash in a colander in the sink. Sprinkle with the salt and let it stand 10 minutes. Squeeze out all excess moisture, and transfer to a medium-sized bowl.
3. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Transfer to the pie pan, and sculpt an attractive crust with a fork (and possibly your fingers).
4. Bake for 40 minutes. Midway through the baking, brush with a little extra olive oil or melted butter. You don't need to cool it before filling.
