Recipe: Basic Quiche

P3 and P4 LegalThis recipe is officially in the Good Food Hunting eBook.  I don’t mind sharing it here as this recipe is a pretty basic recipe that can be found anywhere on the internet when looking for something that is low carb friendly.  The trick however is how to make it HIGH FAT!

So, take a look at the picture.  This is usually how I turn any protein heavy meal into something that is considered higher fat.  Add avocado, oil, and sour cream!  ::giggle::

This recipe is so versatile.  You can pretty much empty your refrigerator of all older veggies just before shopping day, and the best thing is that this freezes really well.  Put individual servings in plastic wrap, then in foil and you have a quick breakfast, lunch or dinner for those times when you have absolutely NO time.

I happen to like cold food, so I can grab this right out of the fridge and eat as is.  What a great hunger reducer when you are on the run.

If you would like, add a comment to let me know what variations you have used with this recipe, I am always looking to try new things!

Enjoy!
