The Story of The Adventures
We had this yummy gluten free feast for dinner served with homefried potatoes and green beans. It was a hit with parents and children alike, has protein, omega 3’s and live foods all wrapped into the same recipe and is very affordable! This is a keeper for our family. I found the recipe it is based on over at WeGotReal.com listed in her weekly menus for eating real foods. I loved that she has the whole store list purchased at Trader Joe’s. Very simple and I was able to spend under $80 for our family of four. Granted, we had a couple of items on hand, but still… $80 for meals that will get us through the whole week is pretty impressive and at Trader Joe’s to boot!
1 tsp-1 Tbs butter or oil
4 oz bacon
1-3 cloves minced garlic
1 cup fresh chopped spinach
1/2 cup frozen broccoli florets
1/2 tsp salt
pepper to taste
1-2 cups cheese (we used cheddar but any mild cheese is delicious)
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1 cup milk (we used flax milk this time, just make sure it’s not a sweetened or vanilla flavored milk)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1-2 Tbs ground flax (optional for added omega-3’s)
Sauté onion & bacon in butter or oil. When bacon is crisp add the garlic and spinach till spinach wilts. While these are cooking stir together the rest of the ingredients. When the sautéed mixture is finished add it to the rest. Pour into a well buttered 10 inch pie plate and bake 30 minutes till it doesn’t jiggle. Take care not to over bake.
Pop that yumminess out of the oven and serve up with your favorite sides and ENJOY! We sure did and we plan to again on a regular basis! This recipe could go well with a variety of veggies, bell peppers, kale, zucchini… whatever is in season and in your fridge. Let us know in the comments how your family like it and what veggie combos you used. We can’t wait to make more gluten free quiche and try them all!
