Carrot Pie with Crumb Topping
1/10th of pie
- CKD non-dialysis
- Lower Protein
- 9-inch unbaked pie crust
- 4 cups fresh carrot slices
- 1-1/4 cups brown sugar
- 1-1/2 cups almond milk
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon allspice
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 4 tablespoons butter
- Preheat oven to 375° F. Set butter out to soften.
- Place crust in a 10-inch pie plate and crimp edges.
- Place carrots in a large stock pot and cover with water. Bring water to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes once water is boiling. Drain and cool.
- In a blender, blend cooled carrots, almond milk, 3/4 cup brown sugar, eggs, vanilla and spices. Process until pureed and smooth with no visible carrot chunks. Pour into unbaked pie crust.
- For crumble topping, combine oatmeal, flour and remaining 1/2 cup brown sugar. Cut in butter until well incorporated (fingers work well for this). Sprinkle crumb topping over filling.
- Bake for 55-60 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle of the pie comes out clean. (There should be no pie filling, but there may be some of the crumb topping on the knife.) Cover pie edges for the last 20 minutes to prevent overbrowning, if necessary. Cool prior to serving. Refrigerate any leftovers.
- Crumble topping can be omitted to decrease carbohydrates and calories, if desired.
- Look for unrefrigerated almond milk and select a brand that does not contain phosphate additives.
- You can serve this pie as a ‘mock’ pumpkin pie. Carrots are approximately 50% lower in potassium than pumpkin.
- Fun decorating tip: Lightly hold a pumpkin cookie cutter on top of unbaked filling and sprinkle crumb topping around cookie cutter leaving a pumpkin design.
