Guest recipe: Paleo Pumpkin Quiche

So today I’m treating you all to a delicious guest post recipe from my gorgeous friend @justjosihealth.

We all, well most of us, love quiche and pastry but we all know it’s not the best thing for us and doesn’t really hold that many nutrients, so Josi wanted to create a quiche which was packed with vitamins and also tasted good, so pumpkin season seemed a perfect time to start!

Ingredients:

500g steamed butternut squash/pumpkin chunks (it can be peeled but doesn’t have to be!)

30g egg whites

4tbsp coconut flour

30g coconut oil

Method:

Place the steamed squash/pumpkin into a processor and blend until smooth

Add the coconut oil and blend again until well mixed

Once cooled slightly add the egg whites and add the coconut flour a spoonful at a time, blending each time till you end up with a smooth mixture

The mixture should be thick enough to hold itself but should be able to be manipulated into place into a quiche dish, so you may need a little more or less coconut flour!

Press down the mixture into a quiche dish, making sure the thickness is consistent all the way round and up the sides – I aimed for about 5mm thick the whole way

Cover the dish with foil and bake for around 30 minutes at 170 degrees

Leave to cool completely, patch over any small cracks before filling

Choose any filling you like and sprinkle into the quiche, top with egg whites until all the fillings are covered

Cover again with foil and bake at 170 for about 30-40 minutes until the quiche has set, removing the foil for the final 10 minutes to brown the top

Enjoy!

  1. WHOA! This is unacceptable. It looks too delicious! Your photography is lovely and this recipe looks like something I really need in my life ASAP. I’ve had coconut flour on hand for a while now, since I normally like to use it in some of my paleo-inspired recipes, and this got me out of my coconut flour rut. I bet this tasted absolutely amazing. Thanks for the inspiration and I look forward to seeing more recipes in the future 🙂 Would pumpkin puree work here?
