Ingredients

Ingredients:

For the crust:

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 3 tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 eggs slightly beaten
  • 4 tbsp melted coconut oil cooled slightly
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp Pink Himalayan salt

For the quiche:

  • 9 eggs
  • ¼ cup milk of choice
  • ½ tsp Pink Himalayan salt
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 medium head of broccoli cut into small florets
  • ½ cup sharp cheddar cheese grated (optional)

Instructions

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 deg F.
  2. For the crust, combine all the ingredients in a bowl and stir till well combined and a soft dough forms.
  3. Lightly grease a pie pan, and place the dough into it. Use your fingers to press the crust into a thin layer that lines the inside of the pie pan.
  4. For the quiche: steam the broccoli florets till just tender. Allow to cool while you make the egg mixture.
  5. In a large bowl, add in the remaining ingredients (except the cheese) and whisk thoroughly till everything is combined well.
  6. Place the pie pan on top of a cookie sheet. This is to prevent a messy oven in case the quiche overflows while baking in the oven.
  7. In the pie crust, add the cooled broccoli florets in an even layer.
  8. Gently pour over the egg mixture till the crust is filled. You may have a little egg mixture left over.
  9. If using cheese, sprinkle grated cheese on top of the quiche.
  10. Carefully place the cookie sheet, with the quiche pan on top, onto the middle rack of the oven.
  11. Bake the quiche for 40-50 mins, till the egg is completed cooked through.
  12. Remove the quiche from the oven, and allow to cool about 10 mins before serving. Or allow to cool completely, cover with plastic wrap or place in an airtight container. Individual pieces can be heated up in the microwave.
