Ingredients

    CRUST:
    1 cup regular oats
    1/3 cup fiber one honey cluster
    2 tablespoons chilled butter or stick margarine, cut into small pieces
    3 tablespoons cold water
    Cooking spray
    FILLING:
    1 cup chopped onion
    1 1/4 cups sliced mushrooms
    1 cup almond breeze milk
    1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    3 large egg beaters
    2 large egg whites
    3 cups fresh spinach

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°.

To prepare crust, combine oats and oat bran; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add water; stir just until moist. Press mixture gently into a ball on wax paper, and cover with additional wax paper. Roll dough, still covered, into a 10-inch circle.

Remove 1 sheet of wax paper, and fit dough into a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray. Remove top sheet of wax paper. Bake at 375° for 7 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

To prepare the filling, place a medium nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat until hot. Add leek; sauté for 2 minutes. Add mushrooms; saute for 5 minutes. Remove from heat; spoon into a bowl.

Combine milk and next 8 ingredients (milk through spinach) in a blender, and process until smooth. Add to mushroom mixture, and stir well. Pour into prepared crust, and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Bake at 375° for 35 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes.
