Gluten Free Vegetable Quiche With Potato Crust- A Colorful Dish

Posted in Home Made Cooking

A colorful veggie quiche, that’s what I made last Friday. And you know what’s the best thing about it other than having veggies in it to add some color? The fact that it’s gluten-free. Yup, it has no flour in it AT ALL. It only has eggs, vegetables, butter and whipping cream. Isn’t this amazing? A piece of this quiche with a side salad is basically all you need on these hot and humid summer days. And no, I’m not complaining about the summer 🙂 you don’t do that here in Nova Scotia 🙂 I’m simply stating a fact.

A great veggie pie with a potato crust and no gluten at all. You can add your favorite vegetables and play around with the ingredients. I doubt it if anything would ruin this yummy piece.
Ingredients
  • 500gr (about 30 pieces) Broccoli flowers
  • 1 tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • ½ Onion – chopped
  • ½ Red Bell Pepper – Chopped
  • 4 Medium Fresh Mushrooms - sliced
  • 5 Eggs
  • ½ Cup Whipping Cream (You can use whole milk too)
  • ¼ tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
For base:
  • 6 Potatoes – Peeled and grated
  • 100gr Butter (about ¾ cup) – Melted
Instructions
  1. Boil the Broccoli for about 2-3 minutes and drain. Set aside.
  2. In a skillet, Saute the chopped onion, mushrooms and bell pepper in the vegetable oil until soften (about 4-5 minutes). Place in bowl with Broccoli.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with the cream and spices. Add to vegetable bowl and combine until veggies are coated.
  4. Mix the grated potatoes and melted butter in a bowl and place in the center of a Pyrex Pie Pan. Spread the mix evenly including the pan edges (just like you would do with a pie crust). Make sure it’s not too thick. Should be about ½ CM thick.
  5. Place the base in preheated oven (to 400F or 200C) and bake for 20 minutes or until golden.
  6. When the base is ready pour the veggie mix on top of it and spread evenly.
  7. Place in preheated oven (350F or 175C) for 30-40 minutes or until firm and golden on top.
Notes
First – Preheat oven to 400F (200C) to bake the base After base is ready, preheat oven to 350F (175C) for quiche
