Paleo quiche with a nut-free, grain-free crust. Filled with roasted organic asparagus, organic leek and free-range eggs. Pure, simple, good.
I grew up disliking quiche. The whole concept of cooked eggs in a pie crust just didn’t do it for me. It wasn’t an omelet, it wasn’t pie… and we ate it a lot. Let’s just say, in the 11 years I’ve lived out of my parents’ home, I’ve never once missed it.
When Healthful Pursuit reader; Cat, contacted me to tell me that my grain-free cracker recipe made the perfect base for quiche, I was a bit reluctant to give it a try.
The one major thing I’ve learned throughout my pursuit of a healthful life, is that when I remake a recipe that is safe for me to eat; more often than not, I enjoy it even MORE than the original.
So, I cracked them eggs and got my quiche on.
Maybe it was the slightly different base, or the dairy-free combination of coconut milk with free-range eggs…
I love quiche.
I love this quiche.
I am a LOVER of all things paleo quiche!
The beauty of quiche is its versatility, making it an ideal recipe for families looking to eat a diet free of genetically modified ingredients. When selecting vegetables for quiche, source locally grown, organic or Non-GMO labeled items for the cleanest, safest meal.
You can have fun with it. Just about any veggie will do. Heck, you could even add roasted pears, apples or figs into the mix.
(Said like a true person that despises quiche, right?)
Although I haven’t tried it, I am sure you could make one giant quiche in a pie pan that the whole family could share. I like the look of the individual tarts, but do whatever you’d like! If you go this route, I would recommend adding baking time.
Is there one recipe from your childhood that you’ve vowed never to eat/make again? Tell me what it is!
