Keto is the thing, you guys! Full disclosure – I don’t really get this whole Keto diet. Eating a ton of fat and little to no vegetables or fruits does not seem like a healthy and wise diet plan to me… but a lot of people are loving it and seeing huge weight loss results!
The one thing I do get and like about being Keto is that it is very low carb.
I feel really good when I’m not eating grains, so I try to avoid them when possible. I wanted to make a quiche last week, but I didn’t want to do traditional pie crust, so I decided to make a cauliflower crust.
I’ve done a sweet potato crust for quiche, which is really really good and I need to share that recipe with you guys, but I already had a cauliflower, so that’s what I used. And I got this Keto Quiche that is super delicious, very low carb, and totally gluten-free.
I have another quiche recipe, also a Zucchini Quiche because that’s what my mom use to make and apparently I’m stuck on it, but that one has a traditional crust and some mushrooms.
You don’t have to use zucchini in this Keto Quiche, though. You could use the traditional broccoli or even yellow squash. Add bacon if you are into it, and if you are following the Keto diet, then you are definitely into bacon!
Always use organic ingredients when possible, and good, whole milk mozzarella will make a big difference in the taste and health benefits of what you’re eating.
While this quiche was accidentally Keto, it is purposely low carb, gluten-free and totally delicious!
How To Make Cauliflower Rice
There are two effective ways that I make cauliflower rice.
1 . Food Processor
The easiest way to make cauliflower rice is in the food processor. You want to cut your head of cauliflower up into small florets and fill your food processor bowl only half way. If you put too much in at one time, you will just end up with mush on the bottom and whole florets on the top.
Put on the lid and pulse repeatedly until the cauliflower is chopped into tiny bits. I like to pulse instead of just turning the food processor on because every time you press the pulse button, it kind of makes all the food jump and mixes it up a bit, instead of just turning it on and letting everything on the bottom get chopped over and over. You will probably need to stop half-way through to scrape down the sides of the bowl and push some whole bits on the top to the bottom to make sure they get chopped too.
2. Cheese Grater
If I don’t have a food processor available, the next best way to make cauliflower rice is with a box cheese grater.
This way takes a little more time and a lot more muscle, and you need to be careful you don’t grate your knuckles, but it works pretty well too. Just use the large cheese grating side of your box grater and get to work on your whole head of cauliflower.
I love zucchini and cauliflower and use them in most things, even if they are just shredded up and hidden. What is your go to vegetable? Tell me in the comments!
