Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate lightly with cooking spray.

  • Mix 3 tablespoons water and flax seeds together in a bowl. Let stand until thickened, about 5 minutes.

  • Combine almond meal, oat flour, parsley, oregano, and salt in a bowl. Stir in flax mixture and oil with a fork. Add remaining 3 tablespoons water; mix until a piece of dough holds together when squeezed. Press dough over the bottom and up the sides of the pie plate. Prick with a fork in several places.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until pale golden, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Increase oven temperature to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Place broccoli in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave until tender, about 7 minutes.

  • Melt coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir until garlic is just starting to brown, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.

  • Combine tofu, yogurt, nutritional yeast, mirin, miso, lemon juice, nutmeg, and turmeric in a blender; blend on high, stopping to scrape down the sides, until smooth. Pour over onion mixture in the bowl.

  • Stir broccoli and bacon bits into the tofu-onion mixture. Pour into the crust.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until center is set, about 1 hour. Let rest for 20 minutes before slicing.

Cook's Note:

If you don't have any oat flour on hand, you can make your own by grinding oats in a blender.
