Gluten-Free Spinach Quiche

Gluten-Free Spinach Quiche

With this recipe, I just thought back about my childhood times. If the spinach quiche associates you with anything, this recipe will enrich your ideas about the delicious flavors, healthy tinge and joy of preparation.

The spinach quiche has its roots in France, as you can see by its name. As this nation is a champion of enjoying good food and wine, savory quiche was originally made of bread dough, and later they began to use more smooth dough, for example the puff pastry dough. Today I gift you a recipe for healthy quiche, completely flour-less and gluten-free.

Recipe for gluten-free spinach quiche is full of healthy ingredients, where the main ingredient is probably the most nutritious leaf vegetable with a lots of vitamins - spinach and a helper with the slim line enriched with calcium and a necessary dose of protein - cottage cheese . In the recipe, you can use any kind of cheese together with cottage cheese. I like the most to add in some grated mozzarella. This tasty spinach cake is even low calorie and low carbohydrate, thus it's also ideal as a weight loss meal.

Additionally, you can enjoy the recipe if you prefer the excellent source of antioxidants - corn and small and handy low-carbohydrate mushrooms.
