While this quiche qualifies as a simple quiche, it is a stunning addition to your Sunday brunch. This simple quiche is beautiful and full of flavor!
Simple Quiche – Delicious and Easy
Quiche was always something that I enjoyed when I ate gluten, but I never made it. Then when I had to remove gluten from my diet, I really missed quiche, but I still did not make it.
I did not make it because I thought it was too difficult, I thought making quiche was out of my cooking range. Wow, I was wrong. With a little help of a pre-made gluten-free crust, I am in business! The business of making my family a delicious quiche!
I’ve been to so many different gatherings and parties where quiche was one of the main dishes. Not only is quiche pretty to look at, but there are also so many different flavor options as well.
Roasted Red Pepper quiche is always popular during the winter months, and some people prefer to add a few ingredients turning it into more of a spinach and pepper quiche as well.
Truth be told? My taste buds aren’t overly picky. I just love being able to try new flavors and food dishes!
Gluten-Free Pie Crusts Perfect for your Spinach and Red Pepper Quiche
Last year at Expo East I found this amazing company called The Maine Pie Company. The gals that are part of this company are pretty amazing! Not only do they make delicious pies and torts, but they make pie shells! The best part…they are now shipping! That is huge!
That means that YOU and I can now get these amazing gluten-free products delivered to our door! The pie crusts are certified gluten-free and come in packs of two. The products are tested by the ELISA method to have <5ppm. The crusts are light and flaky. The crusts are so delicious, they can easily fool your gluten-loving friends!
I’ve been gluten-free for many years now, and I STILL get excited when I come across an amazing gluten-free product. (I’ve tasted a lot, so I know a good one when I find it) I seriously love this pie crust and I love how the bottom of the crust doesn’t get all soggy when cooking it, either.
Now that I’ve discovered this crust, I’ll be mixing and matching it with all my different baking and recipe needs!
This simple quiche recipe is SO simple….just how simple is it?
I think that so many people tend to shy away from making quiches at home because they feel that they are a ton of work.
Are their elaborate recipes out there? Sure. This just isn’t one of them.
What if I told you that this roasted red pepper quiche recipe has less than 6 steps from start to finish…seriously, I’m not pulling your leg here.
Want to see just how simple this quiche is?
Start with your pie crust, then add the diced roasted red peppers.
Top with the diced fresh spinach.
Add your cheese and fresh parsley.
Top with your whisked egg mixture and then bake, bake, bake!
And honestly, the baking of this spinach and pepper quiche is the part that takes the longest. Don’t be tempted to turn up the heat to get it to back quicker…just set your oven to 350 degrees (preheat oven to 350 degrees first!) and be patient for 30 to 35 minutes.
You can find SOMETHING to do during that time, right?
Want to know a little secret of mine? While I’m waiting for items to get done baking in the oven, I like to “disappear” for a bit and have a little bit of “me” time.
I’ll go to my favorite chair and read a book, or take a quick walk outside in the backyard getting some sunshine and fresh air.
What else should a mom or dad do while waiting for the oven to bake? In my mind, you prepped the meal, compiled the meal and now have placed that meal in the pie plate and oven to bake, so you deserve to take a little break!
Ways to Share your Roasted Red Pepper Quiche with others
Making up a food item to share with friends and family is always a great idea. Think of this recipe as a “loving quiche” recipe where you make it, take it and share it with someone that you love.
Being gluten-free takes the worry out of wondering if others can eat it or not as well, and they’ll never know that it’s gluten-free at all by just how crispy and amazing the crust is!
This holiday season, why not share with your family and friends. Perfect for breakfast gatherings, tailgates and even as a healthy holiday option, why not let the magic and flavor of this simple quiche bring you and your family together!
