wheat-free dairy-free quiche


i've had morning sickness for months, which has transformed into an issue with acidity that also makes me vomit. second trimester is not turning out to be any easier really, but i'm just keeping the end game in mind

with my already challenging dietary restrictions it has gotten really hard to find any foods that my body isn't going to reject completely, which sometimes brings me to tears. it's hard to feel responsible for the health of another when i can't keep food down

i have made my fourth quiche today in the last couple of weeks. it reminds me of one my mom used to make for my brother and i when my dad was out of town. it's a super versatile recipe, so you can make it vegetarian, gluten-free, whatever adaptations need to happen for you are (hopefully) easily included


wheat-free dairy-free quiche
(adapted from this recipe)

preheat oven to 400 degrees

400º
400º
400º

2 cups milk of your choice (i used rice milk)
1/3 cup rice flour
1/3 cup oat flour
1/3 cup tapioca flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp oil
4 eggs
salt and pepper to taste
1 sauteed onion
approx. 1 1/2 cups sauteed spinach
as much or little of the meat of your choice, i used deli ham
feel free to add cheeses, mushrooms, other veggies etc. 


mix the milk, flours, baking soda, powder, oil eggs and salt and pepper in a bowl. sauté the onions and spinach, or whatever veggies you're using. spread the veggies and filling items into their baking dishes


add the wet mix to partially cover the ingredients
 

i have found that this usually makes about two quiches in a typical pie plate


bake for around 35 minutes, depending on your oven. make sure a knife is clean when removed from testing the middle


right out of the oven it's a little more scramble-like, but when reheated in the toaster oven it slices up perfectly! the flours all settle to the bottom and form a crust-layer and the edges crisp up a bit
enjoy!
