Vegetarian Paleo Quiches
– Paleo Flourish
Ingredients: almond flour, arrowroot flour, coconut flour, coconut oil, water, salt, eggs, coconut milk, dried basil, garlic, dried rosemary, baby tomatoes, white mushrooms.
By using baby tomatoes on the top this quiche is jeweled with fantastic colors and the aroma of Italian herbs. This dish would make a great dinner with a green salad or you could make it the night before and have it ready for breakfast in the morning. Cold quiche can be an easy meal to take to work or for picnics too.
– Fresh Planet Flavor
Ingredients: eggs, zucchini, onion, salt, pepper, coconut oil, tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, pancetta.
Sun-dried tomatoes are now easy to source and readily available and they really are worth it! They have a much more intense flavor than fresh ones and can add a lovely sweetness to a whole range of dishes. Because the sun-drying dehydrates the tomatoes and they lose most of their liquid, they are a source of more intense vitamin and mineral content.
– A Clean Bake
Ingredients: grain free pie crust, spinach, red bell pepper, sweet onion, nutritional yeast (optional), fresh herbs (optional), eggs, unsweetened vanilla almond milk or full-fat coconut milk, coarse salt, coarse ground black pepper.
This quiche has a wonderful crumbly crust that is grain and gluten-free but you could also make this dish without a crust at all. The crusts can be pre-made and frozen, meaning you will have a ready supply to fill with your favorite ingredients. This is an adaptable recipe that gives you a load of other options to change the ingredients for a different slant on the flavor.
– Healing Whole Nutrition
Ingredients: almond flour, garlic, salt, pepper, olive oil, red pepper flakes, water, eggs, non-dairy unsweetened coconut milk, button mushroom, spinach, coconut oil, salt, pepper.
This is another exciting recipe for a quiche with an almond flour crust. These tend to have a similar texture to wheat flour crusts but are grain and gluten-free, so are perfect if you have any intolerance. This one has mushrooms and spinach which are great together, but you could change the ingredients to suit your taste or your larder.
– Primal Palate
Ingredients: grain-free pie crust, spinach, red bell pepper, onion, nutritional yeast or cheese of choice, parsley, egg, coconut milk, sea salt, black peppercorns.
Here is your chance to provide the whole family with a delicious veggie quiche that they will all enjoy but is stuffed with nutritional value because of the vegetables. You can make it look really attractive by arranging the pepper slices on top and you can also make this ahead of time for a healthy and filling breakfast.
– Per Chance to Cook
Ingredients: sweet potatoes, olive oil, yellow onion, garlic, zucchini, kale, coconut milk or coconut cream, eggs, salt, pepper, ground nutmeg, roma tomato, dried rosemary (optional).
This recipe uses sliced sweet potatoes to form a crust and it looks really appetizing! The sweet potato gives the dish a fresher taste and texture than using a crust, yet it cuts really well. This is another recipe that can be eaten at any time and if you don’t like kale you don’t have to use it! Just swap it for another vegetable or miss it out completely.
– Azahar Cuisine
Ingredients: spaghetti squash, butter, leek, eggs, coconut milk or almond milk, asparagus, tomato, sea salt, ground pepper, ground nutmeg.
Here is another new idea for a light and crispy crust that does not involve using flour. If you prebake the crust you will find that it does not go too soggy on the base after you fill it with the egg mixture. You can zest up the flavor of the crust by adding in some fresh herbs such as rosemary or thyme. This would be a very impressive meal to make for a dinner with friends.
– Paleo Running Momma
Ingredients: sweet potato, olive oil, sea salt, baby spinach, bacon, white mushrooms, onion, garlic, eggs, coconut milk, nutritional yeast (optional).
Quiches can be a great dish to serve to encourage the family to eat healthier as they will be more inclined to eat veggies that are incorporated in the egg mixture than simply served on their own. This recipe has the benefits of meaty mushrooms and bacon which go well together and are a more satisfying filling – perfect for lunch or a hearty breakfast.
Crustless Paleo Quiches
– Paleo Flourish
Ingredients: eggs, ham, spinach, leek, coconut milk, baking powder, salt, pepper.
These little crustless quiches have the perfect balance of meat and vegetables, making them super-tasty and perfect for a quick snack or a lunch. These taste so good cold so would be great to take to work or pack in the kids’ lunchboxes. Just be a bit careful to taste the mixture before you add the salt as the ham can be salty enough, depending what type you use.

Ingredients: coconut oil, bacon, bell peppers, onion, spinach, tomatoes, eggs, olives, basil leaves, garlic, coconut cream, salt, pepper.
This quiche has notes of Italian cuisine thanks to the olives and fresh basil and makes a tasty lunch or dinner. You could even add in some Italian seasoning for a more authentic flavor. If the bacon you use is quite salty, taste the mixture before adding the salt and pepper to make sure it
is not over-seasoned. This is great as it is or served with a fresh green salad, and can be portable in lunchboxes too.
– Beauty and the Foodie

Ingredients: eggs, Salsa Verde, heavy cream or unsweetened almond milk, mild green chilies, sausages, sea salt, black pepper, full-fat coconut milk, lemon juice or apple cider vinegar.
There is something very impressive about a friend serving up homemade quiches at a party or for a lovely lunch and these ones are no different. They have a really creamy look to them and crowned with the tomato you just want to bite in! You don’t want to serve these too hot, rather let them cool a bit so that the flavors of the salsa verde intensify.

Ingredients: eggs, almond milk, broccoli, cheddar cheese, salt, pepper.
There is something about mini foods that make them so much more appealing and they are a fantastic way to encourage the whole family to eat healthier food. This recipe makes enough for breakfasts for the whole week, or to serve with a salad for a lovely tasty lunch. You can also add in whatever meat you like – bacon and sausage work well with this.
– Low Carb So Simple
Ingredients: bacon, onion, eggs, coconut milk, cheese.
This quiche has a wonderful egg and bacon filling, making it a great dish to serve for a hearty and satisfying breakfast or with stir-fried veggies for a delicious lunch. This quiche tastes just as good warm or cold so it makes a lovely addition to your lunchboxes for work or school. This dish has the added texture of the onions, some of which go crispy giving the quiche an added texture.
– Stupid Easy Paleo
Ingredients: dried mushrooms, bacon, chicken, dried sage leaves, eggs, full-fat coconut milk, sea salt, black pepper, coconut oil.
This is such a clever recipe to use if you have chicken left over from a previous meal and chicken and bacon are the perfect partners for a tasty and satisfying meal. If you would rather use fresh mushrooms than dried ones you would be better to cook them first before adding to the filling, otherwise they will release too much liquid and the quiche won’t set.
– Seasonal Cravings
Ingredients: olive oil, onion, sweet potatoes, bacon, salt, pepper, eggs, coconut or almond milk, spinach.
Here is another recipe that you can adapt to suit your palate or your fridge! These little cups are packed with the flavors of mushroom and spinach, but you could use any combo you like. If you make them as described you will find that they are really filling so you will only need one for breakfast. These delicious cups can be frozen in an airtight container for up to one month.
– Linda Wagner
Ingredients: eggs, kale, swiss chard, campari tomatoes, shallots, mustard, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, Parmesan cheese, butter, salt, pepper.
Crustless quiches are wonderful low-carb dishes to turn to for ideas for lunch and to pack in a lunchbox as they are easily transported. If you decide to use the tomatoes on the top of this dish, you could add to the aromatics and sprinkle some chopped fresh basil over the top to enhance the flavors of the tomato.

If you are still looking for the perfect crust replacement for your quiche, this one is made with zucchini hash and adds new textures and flavors to the dish. Do your family complain about the flavor of cauliflower? Well with this recipe you can be guaranteed that the taste of cauliflower disappears because of the flavor of the other ingredients.
– Everyday Maven
Ingredients: eggs, zucchini, onion, salt, pepper, coconut oil, tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, pancetta.
With a light and crumbly coconut flour crust, this quiche is definitely a winner!

– Jay’s Baking Me Crazy
Ingredients: ghee, eggs, coconut milk, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, black pepper, dried oregano, mushrooms, red pepper, pepperoni, green onions, pizza sauce.
We all know that pizza originally came from Italy and using this recipe will give you a really authentic taste of the country. It is packed with all the flavors and colors of the Mediterranean and would look great on the breakfast table or served with a leafy green salad for a delicious lunch. You can use pepperoni as a topping or any other deli meat you have – even bacon would go well on this quiche!
– The Cast Away Kitchen
Ingredients: bacon, eggs, full-fat coconut milk, kale, sweet potato, coconut oil, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, cumin, turmeric.
If your family are not too keen on kale, they may well like this recipe as the kale is cooked on the top and takes on a lovely grilled look and taste and can be eaten more easily than some ways of cooking it. This is a crustless quiche and can be used as a great option for a low-carb lunch, taken to work in a lunchbox or served up for a healthy and hearty Sunday brunch
Ingredients: breakfast pork sausage or Italian sausage, sweet potato, yellow onion, spinach, eggs, garlic, garlic powder, ground paprika, salt, pepper, bacon fat.
Using meat as a crust for a quiche can help cut down the carbs even more, yet give you a hearty and filling dish. Pre-cooking the crust can help it to release the bulk of the grease from the meat and save your quiche from becoming very oily. If you choose to use Italian sausage you could also theme the quiche by using an Italian herb mix too!
– flavour and savour
Ingredients: zucchini, sea salt, carrots, bacon, eggs, rosemary, chives, oil.
With its golden top with flashes of green, this quiche looks so appealing that I am sure you will want to just dive right in! And this quiche is super-healthy too as the zucchini and carrots are both full of minerals that your body needs. Just remember to remove as much liquid from the zucchini as possible so your quiche won’t be soggy.
– Paleo Porn
Ingredients: sweet potato, eggs, red onion, avocado, savory leaves, chervil, sea salt, coconut oil.
The colors in this quiche make it look amazing and get your mouth watering even before you taste it! The filling has an extra creamy texture because of the avocado so don’t be tempted to miss it out. If you can, try to cut the vegetables into similar-sized strips as this can ensure that the quiche cooks more evenly.
– Budget Paleo
Ingredients: eggs, bacon, carrot, spinach, red bell peppers, yellow bell peppers, broccoli florets, green onions, chicken breast.
This is the perfect recipe to use if you have a bundle of leftovers in the refrigerator needing to be used up and you’ve run out of ideas. This recipe can accommodate just about any meat, sausage or even shrimp and you can change the veggies to suit. Just remember if you are using a muffin tray that it is a good idea to give it a liberal spray of oil so the quiches don’t stick.
– Delicious Obsessions
Ingredients: eggs, breakfast sausage, coconut milk, garlic, parsley, oregano, paprika, sea salt, black pepper, Parmesan cheese (optional).
Most quiche recipes involve a fairly firmly set egg custard, but this one has a much lighter and fluffier texture because the egg whites are whipped first. This would be a delicious lighter lunch or as a good healthy start to the day as it has more of the texture of a souffle. You could also add in bacon bits or spinach and herbs for an extra lift in flavor.
– Tastes For Everyday Life
Ingredients: nori sheets, sesame seeds, eggs, sesame oil, button mushrooms, red onion, bacon, zucchini, baby spinach, salt, pepper.
This recipe uses nori sheets to line the quiche tin and these are very easily sourced in stores or online.

– Cave Food Kitchen
Ingredients: coconut flour, eggs, salt, garlic powder, chili powder, black pepper, butter, water, coconut oil, eggs, onion, dried chives, tomatoes, bacon.
