Spinach & Prosciutto Paleo Quiche

Updated: Jul 10, 2020


Today I wanted to make something quick, simple and delicious for lunch. This recipe is a Paleo friendly and gluten-free quiche full of protein and vegetables. What I love about this recipe is that it can be very versatile - you can switch out different meat, vegetables and fresh herbs and spices to put your own spin on it. You can also omit the meat and make a nice vegetarian meal or use this recipe as a side dish. It is great the next day to heat up for a quick breakfast or lunch. I hope you enjoy!
