How to make your low carb/keto quiche

  • preheat the oven to 200 degrees centigrade

  • grease the base and the sides of the tin

  • in a bowl mix together the almond flour, coconut flour, dried garlic granules and salt

  • mix well then tip the mixture on to the base of the tin and spread out to cover the base. With freshly washed hands start to press it in to the bottom of the tin and just over 1" up the sides of the tin. The base does not need to be thick, just make sure that it is an even level all over and press firmly at the edges and on the side.

Once the base is cooked place your choice of filling over the base of the quiche, then whisk the eggs and double cream, season with salt and black pepper and pour carefully over the base. Return to the oven and cook for approximately thirty minutes.

Once cooked, leave the quiche in the tin for a five to ten minutes and then run a palette knife around the edges before removing the sides of the tin. Great served cold as well.
