Ground flax, boiling water, then add heavy cream, sweeten if you like.

Also, flaxseed in bulk is SUPER cheap!

I would not recommend heating ground flax, even via pouring over hot food, as the oil oxidizes very easily.

I'm assuming all this talk of quiche means no crust. Can someone post a recipe for crustless and onionless quiche?

This is the recipe I have used for years.. it called for a crust but I have since made it without using the same basic formula. I can't remember if I had to adjust the baking time at all or not. Just keep an eye on it the first time you make it because ovens can vary anyway.

Basic Quiche

2 cups any combo of shredded cheese or veggies, or fruit
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk or other liquid

Saute veggies if using them. Sprinkle on bottom of pieshell. Beat the rest of the ingredients and pour over the sauteed veggies. PLace pie in a 450 degree oven. Reduce heat to 375 and bake about 35 minutes.

For my favorite combos I like artichokes/mushroom/a white cheese of some sort, Tomato/soy bacon/ cheddar, Broccoli/cheddar, Tomatoes/basil/olives and feta and spinach/cheddar The combinations are really only limited by your imagination! I have never tried it but I would assume since fruit was listed you could add a little splenda, blueberries, vanilla extract, maybe ricotta for the cheese and use a vanilla protein shake for the liquid and make a nice fruity custard.

Jenn

Ps... forgot to add, for dinners I sometimes add soy sausage/cheddar or soy burger crumbles/green chilies/cheddar to the quiche and serve the latter with sour cream, salsa, black olives and green onions on the side for everyone to sprinkle on top.

The milk has 16 g of carbs, way too much for my CKD. Could I use water instead? Would I use the same amount?

Any liquid would work I think was what the recipe was saying. I have used the recipe for ten years so as my eating has changed so have the liquid I used. I have used milk, soymilk or watered down half and half or cream for the recipe so I am sure whatever would work. I have even used watered down sour cream just because it was all I had at the time. It's eggs and they are basically fool proof. The only mistake I have seen made (which REALLy made me laugh) was I warned a friend to squeeze her frozen spinach dry before adding it, which of course she didn't do, and hers came out like soup.

I made the quiche for lunch today, with soft tofu and water in the blender as the "other liquid". Used 3 oz of the strongest cheese I had, with sauteed garlic, spinach, and mushrooms. Came out great. Thanks for the tip.

Good glad it worked out for you. MMMmmmmMMMMmmmmm tofu quiche! That is something I have been craving like a crazy woman all week long. I think I am going to try my old favorite recipe although it has no egg at all. I had been afraid to try it without the crust but just don't think I can fight the craving any longer. hehe.

Whizzed up with 50g frozen berries 3g
1 slice Keto bread 3g
With butter and some strong cheddar cheese <0.1

So this comes to about 6.5 which is my highest meal. But as far as I'm concerned worth it as I can't be cooking or eating cooked food in the morning. Need energy first thing to keep me going in the day!


Anyway would be interested to see what you all have.
Take care, Sarah

Two scramble eggs/ coffee
