Ingredients
  

Crust

  • 2 cups blanched almond flour I use Bob's Red Mill
  • 5 tbsp melted vegan or grass-fed butter I use the vegan butter from Miyokos Creamery
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp water room temperature

Egg Mixture

  • 7 pasture-raised eggs
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk Any milk will work
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast Can leave out if you add cheese

Veggies, Cheeses, Meats (Customizable)

  • 1/2 cup cheese I use dairy free cheddar, any will work
  • 1/2 cup frozen broccoli Steamed and drained
  • 3 handfuls spinach
  • ~6 chicken sausage links
  • 1/3 cup sun dried tomatoes

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 350F.
  • In a medium sized bowl, combine all of the ingredients for the crust. Stir until everything is combined well. Tip: Using your hands in this step is easiest; add a little water to your hands before mixing.
  • Grease a pie pan lightly with olive oil spray.
  • Form the crust mixture into a ball and press into pie pan. Evenly distribute the mixture in the pan until the crust is uniform and spread out.
  • Bake the crust for 15-20 minutes.
  • While the crust is cooking, combine eggs (whisked), spices, coconut milk and nutritional yeast in a bowl. Mix well.
  • Add in the veggies, meats and cheeses of your choice! I left suggestions above, but you can use whatever you have on hand and get creative. Tip: For frozen vegetables, make sure that they are steamed and drained well. If you are adding greens or fresh vegetables, I like to saute them in a pan before with a little more butter or oil before adding to the eggs.
  • Once everything is combined and your crust has been baked, add the egg mixture on top of the crust. You can add more cheese on top if you'd like!
  • Bake the quiche for 40-45 minutes OR until the eggs are cooked through and no longer "jiggly". Each oven is different, so you may have to cook yours for a little longer. Enjoy!
