Yummy Scrummy Low Carb Quiche Lorraine

Here is a great article by Tim Noakes on the fact that Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease caused by a high carbohydrate diet is a key indicator of heart disease. So no, it’s not cholestrol that’s the cause of heart disease.

Here is a nice high fat Quiche for your weekend picnics, if you are lucky enough to get some nice summery weather!20160610_172856Base Ingredients:

  • 375g cauliflower
  • 75g ground almonds
  • 1 egg
  • a handful of herbs ( e.g. thyme of rosemary)
  • salt and pepper

Filling Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 50ml fresh cream
  • 50ml full fat milk
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 150g ham chopped small
  • 150g cheddar cheese sliced
  • salt and pepper

Method:

Preheat the oven to 180 deg C. Grease a quiche dish.

Put the cauliflower into a food processor and blitz into breadcrumb size pieces. Then add the almonds, egg, herbs and seasoning. Spread into the quiche dish to cover the bottom and up the sides similar to pastry. Cook in the oven for about 17 minutes to pre-cook until the edges are starting to brown.

For the filling, beat the eggs, cream, milk and salt and pepper together well.

Once the base is pre-cooked, scatter the onion, tomatoes and ham over it, carefully pour the beaten egg mixture over and then top with the slices of cheddar cheese.

Return to the oven to cook for a further 30 minutes. Don’t be tempted to cook for longer as the egg will go rubbery.

Delicious with a mixed green salad and perfect for summer picnics!
