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 buttercream and cheese, making it unsuitable for those with lactose intolerance, or anyone on a diet.
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 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.
Because we used no cream, we resorted to mixing soy milk with starch to thicken the batter. For extra creaminess, we added spinach which also brings in lots of fibres. All this makes a 100% dairy-free quiche that is as creamy as the original.
And then, of course, we used salmon! Spinach and salmon go gorgeously together, and you get to enjoy all the good omega-3 fats from this King of fish. We used fresh salmon, but if you want to use smoked salmon, reduce the amount by 1/3 as it's saltier and has a more robust flavour.
