GF Spinach Quiche- Low Fodmap



A lot of people struggle to eat their veggies, finding them boring or tasteless. This crust-less spinach quiche is such a great way to incorporate vegetables into meal. My mother has made spinach quiche for Shavuot for years. This year I made it fodmap friendly for y'all who can't tolerate oligosaccharides (it's garlic and onion free), plus gluten free because I don't like quiche crust. Since then, I've made it countless times, because it's. just. so. good!  

I find in general that spinach is an under-rated vegetable; everyone knows it's a healthy vegetable, but it's so hard to incorporate it into our daily food rotation. By pureeing these leafy greens, the texture is obviously changed, so you won't feel like a cow chewing on grass, plus it gives a creamy texture that's not usually associated with greenery. It also gives the quiche an AMAZINGLY vivid green colour that you just can't pass up šŸ˜

Want to know the benefits of eating spinach? It's an excellent source of vitamins K and A, manganese, folate, magnesium, iron, copper, vitamins B2 and B6, vitamin E, calcium, potassium and vitamin C. It's a good source of fibre, phosphorus and vitamin B1, zinc, protein, and choline and even more! (Plus you'll feel really virtuous for eating it.) So basically, it's a veggie that should definitely be a part of your diet.
