For a simple yet delicious meal, at any time of the day, look no further than this highly satisfying quiche. It can be made both with or without dairy so is great for everyone!
With a picnic to prepare for, it was a no-brainer that quiche would be on the menu. I’ve made quiches with gluten-&-grain-free crusts (one with Coconut flour and another with almond flour) but did not want to muck about with flours this morning because I’m making another flour based recipe later 😉 So a crustless quiche was the way to go. It’s also a great way to use up those stragglers in your crisper that need using up before the next grocery delivery arrives!
I had red pepper, spinach, and mushrooms so this was what I used, but of course, you can use veggies or meats of your choice for the filling. If using mushrooms and spinach, you would need to cook them before adding to our pie dish because of the liquid that will be released from them.
This can be whipped up in no time at all so is great for a lazy weekend brunch … Or how about making it something special and treating somebody you love to a breakfast in bed (hint hint … It’s Mothers Day this Sunday in SA !).
