Spinach, Feta and Tomato Quiche with Wild & Brown Rice Crust


Bursting with Flavor and Color – this Naturally Gluten-Free Quiche makes the perfect hassle-free brunch, lunch or healthy dinner 

An interesting rice crust offers an earthy flavor to balance the quiche’s custard. Reheats wonderfully
The quiche is layered with Feta Cheese, Sautéed Spinach with Garlic, Egg, Milk & Dill Custard with Red Onion Rings and Tomatoes baked into the top

Quiche is perfect for breakfast, or with a salad for a light lunch or dinner. A creamy quiche made with a pressed-in Wild & Brown Rice Deep-Dish Crust is studded with Feta Cheese, Sautéed Spinach & Garlic, an Egg, Milk & Dill Custard and topped with Red Onion Rings and Colorful Tomatoes (that bake into the top.)

The flavors are quintessential Mediterranean; florentine (spinach) and provençale (tomatoes) are the primary ingredients.

It’s always wonderful to serve a quiche for company, they are so pretty and are a complete meal. Feel free to use your favorite market-fresh ingredients in the proportions in the recipe.

Extra slices of quiche are welcome for a weeknight meal – freeze well wrapped slices and reheat for a healthy meal. A tossed green-leafy salad with a homemade vinaigrette will pair well with the wedges of quiche.

The way you prepare your quiche determines the healthiness of it. Homemade is best – you have control over the ingredients.
I have reduced the amounts of high-calorie ingredients (I use full fat milk; no cream), Feta cheese is a tangy alternative to more fatty cheeses. Increasing the amounts of spices or herbs (I use a lot of Dill!) creates a flavorful quiche that is healthier. Eggs are a good food for weight management because they offer satiety and energy for a small number of calories.

Check out my Gluten-Free Hemp Seed Pate Brisee Crust as an alternative – it’s delicious.

A perfectly healthy, gluten-free meal – Enjoy!
