You will love this Paleo Broccoli Quiche recipe! I thought finding Paleo recipes for Mother’s Day would be difficult. Many of the recipes I have enjoyed with my Mom for Mother’s Day aren’t suitable for the Paleo diet. We have enjoyed yummy desserts, scones with tea, quiche, French toast, etc. Since I am now following the Paleo diet, I wanted to be able to create something for Mother’s Day that both my Mom and I could enjoy.
Paleo Broccoli Quiche Recipe
This collection of Paleo recipes for Mother’s Day will definitely give you something healthy and delicious to choose from. Paleo recipes have no grains, dairy, and refined sugar. Whether you and your Mom are following the Paleo diet or are just hoping to eat healthier, you’ll definitely find something you can both enjoy.
I know that most people hear the word quiche and start dreaming of a crisp pie crust and loads of cheese. But, this paleo broccoli quiche has neither of those and still manages to be absolutely delicious. the combination of sausage and broccoli is so good. And, this is definitely one of our favorite ways to use up too many eggs.
I plan on making this Paleo Broccoli Quiche recipe for Mother’s Day. Unlike many traditional quiche recipes, this Paleo Quiche recipe does not have cheese and it is crustless. This eliminates the dairy and the grains from the recipe, making it suitable for the Paleo diet.
Crust for Paleo broccoli quiche recipe
Of course, if you have a Paleo pie crust recipe, you can certainly use that in this recipe if you want to. This Paleo pie crust seems easy enough to make if you want to give it a try.
What other vegetables can I use?
You could easily use different types of vegetables in this Paleo Broccoli Quiche Recipe. I plan on experimenting with asparagus and Fiddlehead ferns as soon as they are up here. We always have so many fresh eggs from our ducks and chickens that quiche is one of my favorite spring dishes. I use a combination of duck and chicken eggs but you can use whatever you have available to you.
But I want cheese!
I know. Giving up cheese was one of the most difficult things I did on the Paleo diet. But, it’s definitely not allowed. Now, I have heard that nutritional yeast gives certain dishes a cheesy taste. So, if you want to pick up some nutritional yeast, you can certainly give it a try.
How long should I let quiche cool?
If you want to eat your Paleo broccoli quiche warm, let it cool for 10 to 20 minutes before you slice it. If you cut it too soon, it won’t hold its shape and it will be difficult to cut. This crustless quiche is no different than any other type of quiche recipe.
If you want a Paleo quiche Lorraine, you can simply leave out the broccoli and the sausage and instead use crumbled bacon. Just be sure that you are choosing nitrate-free bacon to keep it Paleo.
