Recipe's preparation

    Rice Crust
  1. -Fill TM bowl with the required amount of water to cook rice, insert steamer basket and weigh brown rice into basket. Cook 35 - 40 min/Varoma/sp 4.
    (Note you may choose to steam the pumpkin in Varoma while rice cooks, rather than roast it).

    -Meanwhile, preheat oven to 180'C.

    -Once cooked, allow rice to cool slightly if you have time (rice can be cooked a day ahead).

    -Drain TM bowl of remaining water and pat dry. Transfer rice to TM bowl and add remaining rice crust ingredients. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix Counter-clockwise operation/sp 2 - 3 until combined.

    -Spray a 20cm pie dish with cooking spray and spread rice mixture on the bottom and sides of dish, using the back of a spoon or your hands to flatten and compress. Bake in preheated oven for 15 mins.
  2. Pumpkin Filling
  3. -Season chopped pumpkin with salt & pepper to taste and combine with a little good quality oil. Roast in oven or air fryer until tender.
    (Pumpkin may also be steamed in Varoma while the rice is cooking but will not be as flavoursome. You may also roast pumpkin a day or two prior to baking the quiche.)

    -Weigh cheese into TM bowl and grate 3 - 5 sec/sp 8.

    -Transfer cooked pumpkin to TM bowl and add remaining filling ingredients. Mix on speed 4 - 5 until combined.

  5. -Spread pumpkin filling evenly into pre-baked rice crust and return to oven for 30 - 40 mins, until set.

    -Allow to cool for 10 mins before serving with salad.
