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.

step 1

Roll out the low-fat shortcrust pastry and ease it onto a loose-bottom 23 cm (9 inches) quiche dish.

Press down to flatten the dough, especially around the edges, and trim off any excess.

Refrigerate the tin for at least 10 minutes as this will help the crust hold its shape later on when cooking.

Step 4.1 of Dairy Free Salmon and Spinach Quiche Recipe


  • If you are using fresh spinach, they can be quite voluminous, so add them to the pan a bit a time. If, instead, you are using frozen spinach make sure they are defrosted thoroughly.

  • Once cooked, remove the spinach quiche from the base and allow to cool down a bit before serving.

  • Store the quiche in the fridge for up to three days.
