Ricotta, Fig and Zucchini Quiche

Quiche is perfect for week day lunches or entertaining on the weekends. Normally with a heavy, buttery pastry, quiche can be quite unhealthy. This recipe uses almond meal to form the base, making it much healthier, full of protein, good fats and it’s GLUTEN FREE!

If you try the recipe and love it as much as I do, let me know in the comments below.

  2. Blend all base ingredients in a food processor until combined.
  3. Press firmly into tart tin and bake for 10 minutes.

  5. Spread filling mixture over the base until even.
