Following the success of the grain free Spinach and cheese quiche and the grain free salmon quiche, I thought I would try out a Quiche Lorraine. Perfect to slice and take to work for lunch or great for a picnic.
Grain free Base
1 1/2 cups of Almond flour approximately 150g ( ground almonds )
1 1/2 cups of grated Parmesan approximately 150g
1/4 tsp salt
250g Mascarpone cheese
2 or 3 large eggs ( I used 3 today )
3/4 cup grated Parmesan about 50g
1 finely chopped onion or
1 grated courgette optional
175g streaky bacon chopped
salt and pepper
Large quiche dish
pre heat oven 170c
Mix together ground almonds , parmesan and egg
press into quiche base
bake for 12-15 mins until golden brown
fry bacon and onion or courgette gently in some coconut oil
combine mascarpone cheese, parmesan and beaten eggs
add the cooled bacon and onion or grated courgette
spoon into the cooled base and bake for 30 mins at 180c
serve warm straight out of the oven
or cool and use for a quick and easy lunch choice.
Happy gluten free baking!
