What could be a better, nutrition-packed breakfast than a gluten-free recipe for easy spinach quiche?

Eggs are such a great, inexpensive source of protein. There are so many ways you can cook them! And so many nutritious things you can put in them.

I know that quiche recipes are everywhere, but it’s such an easy dish, and such an inexpensive way to get some good protein on the table that I wanted to share this anyway.

It’s amazing, right? Quiche feels like such a sophisticated dish, but it’s really nothing more than a few simple ingredients mixed together and baked. Five minutes prep time and, voila!

Gabriel and I have been making an effort to eat more green things, which makes this spinach quiche recipe perfect for breakfast (which for us is really brunch – we eat late).

I like to make it crustless – it’s less time-consuming that way – but you can find an excellent gluten-free pie crust recipe here, if you’re so inclined.

  1. Elise,
    Thank you for this recipe! It has become my go to quiche recipe. I have teens in my home, so each time I make one with spinach and one with chopped broccoli. We also like to add some chopped uncured turkey bacon to each. YUM!

    1. I’m so glad you like it! We’ve been enjoying a modified version of this spinach quiche lately too – we’ve been adding kielbasa and tomatoes. YUM! 🙂
