Going to the opera this week at Glyndebourne with my colleagues, and during the interval (which lasts 80 minutes) it is customary to have a picnic diner. These paleo mini quiches are my offering! There is a way of making Paleo pastry, but as these work quite nicely without it, and really life is too short to make pastry, I couldn’t be bothered! I think the addition of the flax into the mixture is what helps them keep their shape (plus flax is amazingly good for you). As there is no pastry I cook these in silicone baking cases, which they pop out of without any fuss.
Ingredients (makes 12 mini quiches)
- 4 Eggs
- 2 Tablespoons of ground flaxseed
- 2 Asparagus spears
- 4 Tablespoons of coconut milk
- 6 Diced cherry tomatoes
- Pine nuts and seasoning
- Shredded roast chicken (approx 1 breast)
You can vary the ingredients for these to your heart’s content. I just happened to have some left-over roast chicken and asparagus!
These would be delicious for breakfast too! (In fact I did make a few extra ones for that pupose…)
