Recipe: Carrot savory pie with fresh coriander

Savory pies and pizza with herbs
June 18, 2011


CorianderI sowed a few coriander plants this year, but they're exposed to sunlight for several hours a day, watered and cuddled and are producing very well.


This recipe is inspired by Barbara's Torta salata di carote al coriandolo: it's very similar but uses coriander seeds instead of fresh coriander. I also added some almonds because I like the carrot/almonds combo.

Ingredients

1 onion
1 tbsp butter
2 eggs
50g ground almonds
1 tsp baking powder
100ml single cream

Directions
Chop the onion and fry in butter for a few minutes. Add the julienned carrots and stir well.
Pour a few tablespoons of water and cook for 10 minutes. Season with salt.
Beat the eggs and stir in the almond flour, baking powder and chopped coriander. Combine with the carrot mixture.
Pour into a buttered pan (20cm diameter) and bake in preheated 180° C (356 F) oven 30 minutes.

Ciao Graziana,
mi piace questa tua idea di aggiungere le mandorle alla torta di carote, sfiziosa :) Che bella la tua piantina di coriandolo! Io quest anno ho piantato poche cose: semini di prezzemolo, che sta crescendo, la lavanda che ha iniziato a crescere ma sembra si sia bloccata (o forse ci mette molto a venire su?). Poi ho una piantina di basilico e una di menta che però mi sembra stia malino e non so che fare. Non ho un grande pollice verde e ho paura che le piante stiano male per colpa mia. Devo studiare giardinaggio! Ciao, buona giornata ;)

Ciao Barbara, molte erbe aromatiche sono piuttosto semplici da coltivarae, amano l acqua e il sole e cresceranno presto. La lavanda è un po più delicata e ha dei tempi più lunghi, ma è perenne e una di queste estati ti stupirà fiorendo!
