A flourless and low carb quiche made with broccoli. A great way to sneak vegetables in your diet and to enjoy a low carb and gluten free quiche.
For every dish that I’ve made with cauliflower, I’ve been looking at broccoli and thinking to myself “Can I? Dare I? Shall I?”. So, here goes…..! Inspired by my cauliflower crusted Quiche I give you a broccoli crust quiche! Bright, bold and colourful and a great way to sneak veggies into your diet. I used almond flour to bind the dish as the broccoli alone will not yield a strong enough crust. You could add some Parmesan cheese too if you wished but I was trying to keep this cheese free.
One tip that I cannot emphasis enough is that you MUST line your baking tray with parchment paper. It will stick to your tin otherwise, however well you grease your tin! There was an incident involved with a spatula and a lot of swearing. Tears welled up. It’s not worth it. Reach for the parchment paper.
For the filling – go crazy and choose your own. Mine in the recipe below are just a guideline and I’ve shown the nutritional details for the quiche case separately too. I was trying to avoid cheese to keep the dish Paleo and wanted to showcase that broccoli can be used as a base for a quiche. I made one with a broccoli filling for an overkill of the green vegetable!
