Have you heard of the Keto Diet? My son has been doing it for a month with great success. It is basically a low-carb diet that gets your body to burn fat instead of sugars. Then, my husband came home from his doctor and told me that he was instructed to cut back on carbs himself! So, I am re-evaluating the way we eat and making changes.
The other day at a Sunday Brunch at Lindsey's house, celebrating my granddaughter's blessing day at church, we had some quiche and it got me to thinking about how most of the ingredients in quiche would work on the Keto Diet, except for the crust. So, I decided to come up with a recipe for a crustless quiche that would fit in with a low carb diet.
I wanted to include a lot of high fiber veggies. Spinach is usually the vegetable of choice in quiche it seems, but while I love raw spinach, I am not a big fan of cooked spinach. So, I decided to try some different vegetable choices. I had some asparagus and some broccoli, plus some onions and bell pepper. The flavor combination was great! Since meat and fat are good to have on the Keto Diet, I also put in pork sausage.
When I first envisioned the recipe, I thought I would make it in a regular pie plate. But as I began to prepare the veggies, I realized that I had better use a 9 x 13 pan. So, this is a nice family sized quiche!
My husband gave this recipe his seal of approval, especially by going back for seconds! It comes out of the pan cleanly and the sour cream gives it a nice tang. If you want less of a tang, you can always substitute cottage cheese.
I hope you give it a try!
