Low Carb Mushroom Goats Cheese Quiche

Low Carb Mushroom Goats Cheese Quiche is a delicious, easy to make dish that is perfect for many occasions. A slice of this quiche is a great way to start the day. Serve it simply with a salad or some roasted vegetables and it’s a complete meal. It’s also ideal for a picnic or to serve for brunch.

Rub pan with butter then sprinkle with almond/Parmesan mix for a light crust

I class this as a crustless quiche because there is no pastry however, making it with almond meal and Parmesan cheese as a crumb, actually creates a bit of crust on the quiche. This adds some great texture but it also helps to ensure that this dish doesn’t stick to the pan. This crust is my go to base for all of my low carb quiches as it works really well. Note that I’ve added a tablespoon of coconut flour to stabilise the filling. Simply omit if you don’t have the ingredients or don’t want to use it. It won’t really impact on the end result.

If you bake this in a smaller quiche pan then you may need to allow it to cook for slightly longer, so that the middle cooks. This recipe freezes really well. I cut it into single serving sizes and simply grab a piece out of the freezer when I feel like a slice.You can also omit the almond meal to make it nut free. Simply double the amount of Parmesan cheese for the crust if you do.
