Start with your Quiche base- get that into the oven, then move onto your filling.
Keto Pie, Quiche or Tart base Ingredients
- 1 cup coconut flour
- 1 cup almond flour
- 3 tablespoons psyllium husk powder
- 3-4 tablespoons coconut oil
- 2 large eggs
- Cracked black pepper- to taste. I added close to ¾ teaspoon
- 5 tablespoon ice cold water – you may need some more
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Place some ice cubes in a small glass of filtered water.
Mix all dry ingredients together into a bowl, then add coconut oil and mix until a sandy consistency is formed. Is used a fork to mix, making sure I broke up all of the lumps.
Scramble egg in a separate bowl, add it to the dough along with your iced water until you get a wet sand type of dough that you can knead into a ball. Add water as needed.
Place dough into a tart pan (mine was a standard 24cm in diameter tin) or individual tins- what ever you prefer. Take your time to push the dough around the tin and up the sides- patience is needed here, this is not a glutenous pastry made with wheat which has a lot of stretch in it. Patience will get your dough spread evenly without holes.
Bake for 12-15 minutes at 180° to par-cook. Then fill with your pie ingredients and cook for an additional 45 minutes. Depending on your ingredients, you may have to par-cook for longer.
Zucchini, Cheese Bacon & Onion Quiche Ingredients
- 6 eggs
- 2 large zucchinis- sliced or shredded
- 1 large brown onion- diced
- 100 grams of organic nitrate free bacon- diced or chopped
- ¾ cup of organic cheddar cheese + a little extra for the top- shredded
- 1 full teaspoon Himalayan salt
Crack all eggs into a bowl.
Place bacon first, then a minute later, onion into a pan, pan frying until just browning.
Add sliced zucchini, the brown onion & bacon mix + ¾ cup of cheddar and Himalayan salt into a bowl.
Using your hands, mix all ingredients well, so they feel evenly mixed.
Pour your Quiche filling into your par cooked Keto Crust.
Bake in the oven at 180° for approx 45 mins.
Voila! A nutritious Keto Breakfast lunch or dinner, you can eat on the go if you have to.
Keeps for 3 days in the fridge- but it won’t last that long.
Delicious on its own as we have it. Or serve with mashed avocado and or sour cream, add a side salad or simply rocket, for a restaurant quality meal.
