Spinach and Bacon Paleo Quiche.

I have a confession, I've never liked quiche...its always struck me as a waste of pastry, eggs and whatever else goes in.
One of the strange things about paleo is that your tastes can change. I don't know why, maybe its the lack of rubbish I've eaten since turning paleo.
Anyway, here's the recipe, you can use the base recipe for all sorts of pies and crusts, too. It's a universal pie crust I suppose!

Ingredients (makes 2 quiches).

1 cup coconut flour
1 cup almond flour
4 eggs
1/2 cup melted butter
Pinch of salt

4 rashers smoky bacon,
1 and 1/2 cups chopped spinach
1 and 1/2 cups grated cheese
1 chopped onion
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp paprika
A glug of milk.



Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until it forms a nice ball. It should resemble shortcrust pastry.

Line a tin with greaseproof paper and press the pastry in to form a tart. Poke a few holes in with a fork and bake at 160 C for 20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and leave to cool while you make the filling.


Grill the bacon until crisp, then chop up, add to the other ingredients and whisk it up.

Pour into your cases and bake for 40 minutes at 180C. It's ready when you can poke a knife into the filling and it comes out clean.

That's it! Serve with a fresh salad and some hot sauce and you're done! It's also great cold the next day.

Om nom!
