Gluten Free Quiche made with leftover roasted vegetables and vegan cheese. So good!

 

With heaping bags of back-to-school supplies spilling out into the foyer, and my “last minute” planning list creeping onto its second page, panic used to creep into me as I worried about finding the time to make healthy dinners while contending with homework hysteria each school night. One of the recipes that brings calm back into my life is gluten free quiche.

 

This crustless version is not only fast to make, it’s low carb — bonus! Made without a pie crust (the gfJules Flour settles to the bottom to form its own crust without being gritty – bonus!), you simply dump ingredients into the bowl, mix and bake this gluten free quiche without shirking any homework monitoring duties.

Your gluten free quiche could take a different form each time you make it, affording the opportunity to make it even more than once a week, if you like! Sometimes I do use a pie crust, for a change of pace, and it’s equally delicious in its more traditional form (here’s the link to my fool-proof flaky gluten free pie crust recipe).

Of course, if you have a few extra minutes, adding my famous gluten free pastry crust to the bottom is always a welcome touch.

  • Author:
  • Prep Time: 25 minutes
  • Cook Time: 45 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 Hour 5 minutes
  • Yield: serves 6

Ingredients

  • 1-2 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup mixture of:
    sliced mushrooms; diced zucchini; broccoli pieces; peas; diced bell peppers; diced asparagus; diced onion; corn; chopped red potatoes; or other vegetable additions of your choosing
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup sour cream, dairy or non-dairy (dairy or non-dairy OR plain yogurt)
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese (dairy or non-dairy)
  • 2 cups mozzarella, Monterey Jack, or other mild shredded white cheese (dairy or non-dairy)
  • 8-12 oz cooked shrimp, chopped, or crabmeat (optional)
  • 1/4 cup gfJules™ Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp. chopped Italian Parsley
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1 tsp. basil
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp. cracked black pepper
  • 1 recipe gfJules Gluten Free Pastry Crust (optional)

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350° F.

In large pan heat olive oil to medium-high, then sauté vegetables, legumes, mushrooms, or any combination thereof that you choose, cooking potatoes longer than any other addition. Set aside to cool.

Combine eggs, sour cream, cheese, gfJules™ All Purpose Flour, salt, pepper and herbs in a large mixing bowl and beat well. Stir in your sautéed ingredients, shredded cheese, and seafood, if using.

If using a gluten free pastry crust, prepare it according to these directions, then line one large quiche dish or deep pie plate or to bake without a crust, oil the pan lightly (the gfJules Flour helps to form a crust when baked, so no pie crust is necessary).

Depending on how many additions you used, you may need a small casserole prepared to handle the additional batter.

Bake for approximately 45 minutes, or until the center is no longer jiggly, and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before slicing and serving. (OR use mini muffin pans, well oiled, and cook only until done – approximately 25 minutes).

Serve warm or cold.

With or without a gluten free crust, baked in a large pan or small pans, this recipe should be on your permanent dinner rotation!

Pin for later!

  3. OK, I’ve never been good with making pie crusts or pastries, but despite how ugly mine looked in this quiche, it was soooooo good! My husband, who does not like quiche, really enjoyed it. Believe me, that says so much!

    • So glad you were able to make a quiche to be proud of! Congratulations, Cathy!!!! When it comes to food, it’s never as much about looks as it is about taste, so it’s good you focused on the right things!

  4. Anyone know of a dairy AND soy free sour cream? I use Daiya shreds for cheddar and mozzarella cheese, but haven’t found a sour cream substitute. Also looking for a GF, dairy and soy free mayonaise.

    Good news: Almond Breeze has come out with a good dairy and soy free yoghurt!

    • Bjohn, there’s lots of great news on the gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free horizon! Daiya just released a soy- and dairy-free cream cheese, for example! Look for it to hit the shelves soon. As for a sour cream sub, the best sub is just to use coconut or almond yogurt instead (plain). You could also use the new coconut and almond Greek yogurts! So Delicious, Almond Breeze and Almande all now make almond yogurts. For mayo, look to Earth Balance Mindful Mayo (GF, dairy-, soy- and egg-free).

  5. Will the mini versions freeze and reheat? Thinking ahead to when I need to bring an appetizer next weekend and the picture of the mini quiches look delicious!

    • Taryn – If they are well sealed and frozen after cooling, they should reheat nicely for you. Be careful not to over cook the mini quiches, especially if you’re reheating them later. They are perfect little apps to bring to parties!

  6. Jules,

    The quiche sounds delicious, and I’m anxious to try it! However, in addition to following a gluten-free diet, I am also on Weight Watchers. Do you have any calorie/fat/fiber info available about your recipes?

    Thanks! Love your work!
    Susan

    • Thanks Susan! It is a great recipe, and it’s great for special diets requiring higher fiber, lower fat. My ebooks all have nutritional information, but I don’t have them worked out for all my recipes yet. I hope to have that someday soon!!
