Our dairy free salmon quiche with salmon and spinach is our take on the original recipe: just as tasty but much healthier!
Quiches are a classic French recipe, easy to prepare and perfect for when you have guests over and you want to make a beautiful and tasty dish. Unfortunately the classic recipe is not healthy at all. It has lots of high saturated fats coming from butter cream and cheese, making it unsuitable for those with lactose intolerance, or anyone on a diet really...
As here at Foodaciously, we strive to make the recipes you love healthier and allergy-friendly, we have adjusted a few ingredients to keep all the taste but fewer fats and calories. Keep reading to learn how or skip straight to the steps below!
To reduce the fats and calories, our salmon and spinach quiches uses a low-fat and dairy-free shortcrust. We have also replaced cream and cheese with healthier plant-based milk.
As no cream is used, milk is mixed with starch, which helps to thicken the quiche. 100% dairy free deliciousness! To add back creaminess to the recipe, we have added spinach which also brings in lots of fibres.
And of course, salmon! Spinach and salmon go gorgeously together and you get to enjoy all the good omega-3 fats that this King of fish gives us. We used fresh salmon, but if you want to use smoked salmon, reduce the amount by 1/3 as it’s more salty and has a stronger flavour.
