Awesome Almond Flour crust and Quiche

I found this video and wanted to share this with you. This awesome to me because it is healthy and yummy.

This quiche contains sun-dried tomatoes, asparagus and goat cheese. Doesn’t that sound gourmet?  The

recipe is awesome also because it is low carb, which means low glycemic impact!

Did I mention gluten-free? Gluten-free crust.

The blanched almond flour is the key to the crust. And it is so simple!

Enjoy!

Paleo Bread Recipe

This gluten free bread is easy to make, tastes great, and is full of nutrient dense ingredients.
Gluten free isn’t necessarily healthy, especially when it comes to bread. Here’s a gluten free bread recipe, made of high protein ingredients that won’t leave you dragging. I’m loving every slice that comes from this new Paleo diet friendly bread recipe.

This bread is just a bit lighter and fluffier than my other breads. It has a nice nutty flavor from the flax meal which makes it almost have a kind of “whole wheat” thing going on, and it has a lovely little bit of sweet flavor from the honey (I used honey that my friend Shirley harvested from her bee hives and sent to me as a gift –I treasure it).

I’ve been working on this gluten free bread recipe for several months and have tested it a couple of dozen times. In fact, every time I create a recipe I test each and every ingredient addition or subtraction. That’s why I think it’s kinda funny when people leave comments below recipes (or on Facebook, Twitter and in my forums) asking if such and such ingredient substitution will work.

For example, with this recipe, I tested changes as minute as 1 teaspoon baking soda versus 1 ¼ teaspoons baking soda. Same with the apple cider vinegar. I tested this recipe with 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar and with 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. I could go on and on. I varied the number of eggs in several batches. I played with numerous ingredient combinations to come up with this recipe.

It’s just hard work folks. I wish I had a crystal recipe ball that I could look into to answer all of your substitution questions. I don’t. So be adventurous. If you have an idea, test it. Then come back here and let us know if it worked!
