Smoked Salmon Quiche with Gluten Free Crust

Craving big bold flavors but want something lighter? This Swedish quiche with smoked salmon, asparagus, and broccoli is gluten-free and packed with delicious flavors that you will definitely love. It is a wonderful meal for breakfast, brunch or dinner and it is succulent warm or cold.

 

If you prefer, you can use a ready pie crust but I urge you to give this crust a try even if you’re not gluten-free dependent. Its nutty flavor and rustic texture complement the silky egg filling perfectly. I adopted the recipe from a German cooking magazine Tina Koch & Back Ideen.

 

 

My favorite is quiche Lorraine (hello eggs and bacon!) but when asparagus is in season I cheat on Lorraine with this Scandinavian. I promise I’m only unfaithful to food. Β I’m not even discrete about it. You’ll see me jumping from one hottie [dish] to another, coming back only to those who satisfied me deeply. Food can be sexy, don’t you think? πŸ˜‰

 

I’m in love with smoked salmon. It’s mysterious and lush. I love it with cream cheese on my buns [as in bread buns – I don’t know what you’re thinking], hot in my mouth [get your mind out of the gutter, I’m talking about this bisque], and modest and gentle like in this fettuccine dish.

 

I believe the Swedes know a thing or two about pleasing [the taste buds]. Β The lox in this quiche balances the mildness of asparagus and broccoli while it harmonizes with the tenderness of eggs. It’s everything you ever wanted.

 

Thus I say, be naughty! Live a little. Try new foods! This gluten-free smoked salmon quiche is a perfect start.

    This quiche looks delicious. The crust look really interesting I love to use asparagus when in season locally grown asparagus has a great flavour. Thank you for linking to #CookBlogShare.

      I hope your husband will like it. It’s mild in smoked salmon flavor, but you always add more (or less) πŸ˜‰ Have a wonderful rest of the week, April!

    Thank you for this recipe. The first time I had eggs and salmon was in Alaska and have loved it ever since.
