Savory Paleo Vegetable Quiche

We served this easy quiche for dinner alongside a fresh salad, but you could just as easily serve it for breakfast or lunch. You can change it up by mixing and matching any veggies that you have on hand – asparagus instead of broccoli, for example. We adapted this recipe from the original by Elana Amsterdam in her book, “The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook“.

  • In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, feta cheese, and salt together. Stir in the sauteed vegetables and cherry tomatoes, then pour the mixture into the pre-baked crust.

Notes

We use either Bob’s Red Mill or Nature’s Eats almond flours.
I recommend serving a fresh green salad with the warm quiche.
