Impossible Pie Recipe (The Possible Gluten Free Quiche)
If you are looking for an easy recipe for breakfast or lunch, you have come to the right place. This gluten free impossible quiche is extremely easy to prepare and has a lot of healthy ingredients, like veggies and eggs. The pie has a thin crust and some crunchy bites inside.
- 6 slices organic bacon, chopped
- ½ red bell pepper, chopped
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 2 cup baby spinach
- 1 cup goat cheese, crushed
- ½ cup gluten free flour mix
- ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
- 6 eggs
- 2 tbsp butter, melted and chilled
- Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Preheat the oven to 400F. Grease a baking dish with a little bit of butter.
Melt the butter and set aside to cool.
Chop the bacon, red pepper and green onions into bite size pieces.
In a large bowl, combine the red bell pepper, bacon and green onions. Add 2/3 of the goat cheese and stir.
Bring in the flour and season with salt and pepper. Transfer this mixture to the baking dish.
Whisk the eggs in a separate bowl and pour in the milk. Add the cooled melted butter and whisk until well combined.
Pour the beaten eggs over the veggies and top with the remaining cheese.
Bake the impossible pie quiche for about 50 minutes. If you know that your oven has hot spots, rotate the dish after 20-25 minutes so it will bake evenly.
Allow the quiche to cool at least 10 minutes before cutting and serving it.
- If you want an extra-fresh touch for your impossible pie quiche, add some fresh parsley chopped. You will benefit from a boost of vitamins (especially vitamin C) and minerals.
- Check your pie at least two times after 40 minutes. In case the bottom gets too brown (mine did, a bit) but the top isn’t set, reduce heat to 350F and keep baking the pie for 10-15 more minutes.
- All-purpose flour works well for this recipe if you don’t have any food intolerance or you don’t want to make a gluten free pie. So use the same amount of all-purpose flour to prepare the quiche.
- I used unsweetened almond milk because I had it in the fridge. Also cow milk or goat milk are perfect.
- Vegetarians can also enjoy this delight, just omit the bacon and add a different vegetable you like.
- Many recipes don’t use butter for the impossible pie. I find that butter gives a great taste and changes the texture a bit making it richer and I prefer it this way.
- You can also go bonkers with the spices used. Whatever seasoning you prefer, if it pairs well with the meat and veggies used, just go for it. And don’t be shy with the quantity either.
- The best thing about this recipe is that it can be tailored to suit any taste. It is possible that one day you don’t know what to cook. Remember this impossible pie recipe and throw in the bowl whatever you have in the fridge. Your lunch will be easy and healthy. A slice of this pie only has 327 calories. The high protein intake will keep the hunger away for a while.
- No matter which pie you cook, don’t forget to enjoy it!
