Gluten-Free Crustless Broccoli & Spinach Quiche

Updated: May 8, 2018


It’s quiche time! This French open pastry is a delightful creamy brunch dish that’s a savory mix of eggs, bacon and cheese. I’ve always liked quiche for its versatility: it can be enjoyed hot or cold, with meat, a salad or raw vegetables and can also be hearty enough to be eaten alone. It can be served bite-sized, mini or in whole slices. The flaky crust is a definitely a must-have but I find that the crustless quiches provide a lighter bite and I bake them more often. They’re perfect at appetizer/entrée option at tea parties, open houses, cocktail reception and club meetings. This recipe is combination of the Lorraine (bacon) and Florentine (spinach) quiche recipes and will be a hit at your next girls night-in or NetFlix series binge!

4 Turkey bacon slices, chopped

1tsp Parsley, freshly minced

2 Spinach, handfuls, chopped

¼ cup Tofu cream sauce

Tips:
