Green Quiche w/Brown Rice Crust (Gluten-Free)


Using precooked soaked brown rice for the crust not only makes this quiche gluten-free, but also makes it a much heartier meal, which is why this quiche makes a great dinner option as well. You can use any kind of wilted greens you choose, personally we enjoy swiss chard and kale.

  2. Step Two:
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place wilted greens into a fine-mesh strainer and press out all liquid (reserve the liquid and set aside).
  4. Place strained greens evenly across the bottom of the prepared brown rice crust and then place steamed broccoli florets on top. Sprinkle with cheese.
  5. In a measuring cup, add reserved greens liquid and top off with milk until you reach 3/4 cup. In a large bowl, add eggs, milk mixture and seasoning. Whisk until well combined and frothy.
  6. Pour egg mixture evenly over top of greens and cheese.
  7. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until top is golden brown and filling is set. Allow to cool five minutes before serving. YUM
