Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 large head broccoli cut into florets
  • 1 cup ground almonds/almond flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder optional
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder optional
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

Filling

  • 6-8 eggs
  • 10 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tin/jar artichokes
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 375F/190C.
  • Place the broccoli in a food processor and blitz for a "rice like" texture.
  • In a bowl, combine the broccoli, almond flour, eggs and any seasonings. Season with the salt and pepper. Mix well.
  • Line a tin/dish with greaseproof paper.
  • Using a spoon, press the broccoli mixture into the tin and around the edges. I simply place the mixture into the tin, then spread it out with a spoon until even.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until firm and slightly golden. Remove from the oven and keep the oven on at the same temperature.
  • Beat the eggs for your filling in a bowl. Season with the salt and pepper.
  • Place the vegetable fillings over your Quiche case and pour the egg mixture over.
  • Bake in the oven for 35 minutes until the egg mixture is golden and firm.
  • Eat and enjoy!
