Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche with Quinoa Crust

Quiche always leaves me feeling greasy and bloated. It seems like it’d be light, but so many quiches end up weighed down with cheese with just a smattering of bland veggies and a butter-loaded crust. This one, my friends, is different. The crust is crunchy-chewy (healthy) quinoa (and therefore, it’s gluten-free, too), and the midsection is filled with garlicky chunks of broccoli and the sharp tang of Cheddar. And, as my 7-year-old daughter proved, this is a quiche kids love, too. Thanks to Closet Cooking for guidance on the quiche shell!

  1. This sounds great and I want to make for Mothers Day, but do you think you could assemble the night before, refrigerate and bake in the morning?

    • What I’d recommend is cooking the quinoa the day before so it’s ready to go, and cooking the broccoli the day before. Then, yes, all you need to do is assemble and bake. We just made this at one of my classes at Rancho La Puerta Spa tonight and it was heavenly :-).

  2. This was terrific. I used cauliflower instead of broccoli (because that’s what I had on hand) and I cant wait to experiment with other vegetables. Thanks.
