  • 1/3 cups - oat bran
  • 2 tablespoons - chilled butter or stick margarine, cut into small pieces
  • 3 tablespoons - cold water
  • - cooking spray
  • Filling
  • 1 cups - chopped leek
  • 1 1/4 cups - sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cups - evaporated fat-free milk
  • 1/4 cups - grated fresh Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoons - salt
  • 1/4 teaspoons - dried dill
  • 1/4 teaspoons - dried thyme
  • 1/4 tablespoons - black pepper
  • 3 - large egg whites

  • 1 packages - 10 oz. frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained, squeezed dry
  • 1/4 cups - finely shredded Gruyere or Swiss cheese
  • Directions:

    Preheat oven to 375° F.

    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 and 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° F 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 leak and saute for 2 minutes. Add mushrooms; saute for 5 minutes. Remove from heat; spoon into a bowl.

    Combine milk and next 8 ingredients (though spinach) in a lender and process until smooth. Add to mushroom mixture, stirring well. Pour into prepared crust and sprinkle with Gruyere (or Swiss) cheese.

    Bake at 375° F for 353 minutes or until a knife inserted near center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes.
