I love anything that has to do with pie and cake, so a hearty one in the form of a quiche is definitely a winner too! This recipe for an easy creamy gluten-free quiche with spinach, mushrooms and goat cheese can get me just as excited as for when I’m about to put my teeth into some delicious sweet cake. Pinky-promise, both are just a feast to have 🙂 And it’s not even that much work to make yourself a healthy gluten-free quiche. Let me show you how it’s done…
Quiche is a savoury pie with a creamy mixture of eggs and dairy inside.
You can vary a lot in the filling, and I like mine to have lots of veggies in it. Though quiche is mostly made with a premade pastry crust, it’s so much tastier to make your own healthy pie crust. By using almond flour you’re making it gluten-free, low-carb and tasting de-li-cious!
It was a little challenge for me to create a recipe for a good crispy crust without getting too crumbly… But I managed to get it right. This quiche recipe is great for either lunch, brunch or dinner! If you’re having a dinner party, bake a quiche and I’m sure you will please your guests very much. You can do all the preparations in advance, so it saves you time to enjoy with the others rather than standing in the kitchen.
Actually no matter what time of day, you can always be satisfied with this healthy gluten-free quiche 😉
