This is a no crust-quiche, but, you could certainly bake it in a crust — if you want the carbs and the extra work — but it doesn’t need the crust to be delicious.
On the flip side, I know my husband really enjoys a Quiche baked in a light, fluffy crust… He thinks it’s an outstanding breakfast or luncheon treat.
And, he’s right!
It is outstanding…
… This quiche is actually a whole meal in one dish – protein, fiber and low-carb too! Plus, it has plenty of healthy, veggies in it… And, besides being gluten-free and low-carb, it’s also vegetarian.
And, don’t forget, it has antioxidants galore!!!
Nourishing and warming Butternut Squash Soup in the Slow Cooker is naturally gluten-free.
Butternut squash is easy to cook several different ways, including the slow cooker, the stove top, the microwave or the oven. I’ve used each method in the past and found that they all have their advantages.
For this recipe I focused more on the set-it-and-forget aspect of a crock pot to cook the squash while I went about doing other things for a while.
All I did before putting it in the crockpot was to halve it and seed it.
