Quiche is one of those meals that doesn’t take a ton of time to make but still satisfies the belly. If you’ve decided to follow a Whole30 meal plan, you don’t have to give up your quiche craving. Here, we are handing over a couple of Whole30 quiche recipes that will make you excited to try your hand in the kitchen.
Before we delve into recipes, it may be a good idea to do a quick review of what Whole30 entails. This plan requires you to cut out any processed foods, added sugars, grains, alcohol, dairy or soy for 30 days.
This 30-day time period serves as a reset for the body to boost metabolism and change your relationship with food. If you’re having issues with gut health, it can also help to determine the trigger foods once you start slowly introducing certain foods back into your diet.
Whole30 Quiche Recipes
There is a myriad of recipes available at your fingertips to help you along during your Whole30 reset, but here we focus on two simple quiche options.
- 6 eggs
- 8 oz. fresh chopped spinach
- 7 oz. bacon (sugar-free, and nitrate-free, preferably)
- 1 cup finely chopped onion
- 2 tbsp. minced garlic
- ½ tsp. sea salt
- ¾ cup chopped mushrooms
- ¼ cup full fat coconut milk
- 1 large sweet potato
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Peel and slice the sweet potato into thin round pieces. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and set around the edges of the pan to form the crust. Roast crust for 25 min.
