I’ve been looking for a delicious quiche recipe for a while, and somehow just couldn’t seem to get it right. Until my friend Ulindi shared her mom’s winning recipe with me, that is…

I made some changes to the original, and this is now a firm family favourite. It’s quick, easy and versatile, and you can make it paleo / keto by making a small change to the crust.

Serve with a side salad.

Quick and easy to make, and super versatile – simply replace the quiche with your favourite combo of vegetables, chicken, ham, etc.
