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!!!

Steamed or braised collard greens with garlic and a sprinkle of fresh lemon are naturally gluten-free. A relative of the cabbage and broccoli family, they are low carb and rich in fiber and many valuable nutrients, such as vitamins A, C and K, plus several of the B vitamins. They also have a variety of minerals, such as potassium, phosphorus and calcium, to name a few.
These collards can be served as a side for pork loin chops or chicken pieces for a paleo dinner, with a baked sweet potato as another side. I like to accompany them sometimes with Cajun rice or blackeyed peas to complement their texture and flavor for a vegetarian dinner. In the photo above they are shown with Shredded Barbecue Chicken.
