How To Make A Simple Crust

I class this as a crust less 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.

Simple Switches To Suit Dietary Requirements

I’ve added a tablespoon of coconut flour to stabilize the filling in this recipe. Simply omit the coconut flour if you don’t have any or don’t want to use it. Likewise with the almond meal/flour and Parmesan cheese for the crust. You can create the crust with only Parmesan cheese (for a nut free version) or with almond meal on it’s own, or you can simply make the quiche without a crust. If you don’t add a crust, just make sure that you wipe the quiche pan down with some oil or butter, so the baked quiche doesn’t stick and is easy to remove once baked.

If you bake this Low Carb Mushroom Goats Cheese Quiche 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.
