This is an older recipe of mine. It called for 1 cup of canned evaporated milk. Since I guess that we can't have that, I did some research and found out that we can make our own. Take 2 and 1/4 cups of whole milk and simmer on the stove until it reduces to 1 cup. It worked! I let that simmer and reduce while I chopped up the veggies and got the rest ready. It does need to cool down some so I put mine in the fridge

In a small bowl, whisk 1 egg white. Add cooked rice; stir until well blended. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate (greased first!). This takes a bit of patience, but it really turns out nicely!

In a large bowl, whisk flour and milk until smooth. Whisk in egg and remaining egg whites. Stir in the mozzarella cheese, asparagus, corn, mushrooms, carrot, onion, parsley, basil, salt and oregano. Pour into rice crust; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Bake at 375 degree F for 45-50 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting (to firm up).
