Ham and Cheese Quiche with Sun-dried Tomatoes : Gluten Free and Low Carb


Parma ham and sun-dried tomatoes go hand in hand in this beautiful rich and savoury low carb (and gluten free) quiche.

Ingredients:
Serves Six
Net Carbs per serving 10g
Pie crust
2⁄3 cup (150ml) sunflower seeds
1 tbsp. sesame seeds
2⁄3 cup (150ml) coconut flour
4 eggs
1⁄3 cup (75ml) light olive oil or melted butter
1 tbsp. ground psyllium husk powder
1 tsp salt
Filling
3 oz. (75g) shallots or yellow onions
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp salt
½ tsp ground black pepper
6 eggs
1 cup (225ml) heavy (double) whipping cream
7 oz. (200g) shredded (grated) cheese
4 oz. (110g) Parma ham
1 oz. (30g) tomatoes, sun-dried
Serving
7 oz. (200g) lettuce
4 tbsp. olive oil
½ tbsp. red wine vinegar

salt and pepper, to taste
Tip
You can either use a large and deep pie dish, but you can also bake it in single serving molds. You just need to adjust the baking time and keep an eye on it. In this case, you should cover with aluminium foil when you are pre-baking so the crust does not get burnt.
Dairy-free
If you want to cut down on dairy, you can substitute the cream with mayonnaise.

sounds good...but I'm more a ten minute cook...the crust goes beyond my ability to focus in the kitchen.
