Easy Crustless Quiche, Dairy-free

How do you a bake a Quiche with no crust? This is a delicious, gluten-free, dairy-free quiche you can make in just one step. When it bakes, it makes its own magical crust on the bottom, sides, and top. The crust is created by layering these special ingredients: coconut butter, onions, veggies, and pouring batter on top. Then bake, and presto! Your delicious pie is ready.

Vary the recipe 1,000 ways – add your favorite veggies, leftover diced meat, and it always comes out yummy! Look for meats that are wild, pasture-raised, or GMO-free. This recipe is adapted from my Mom’s “Impossible Quiche”, her easiest breakfast, lunch or dinner stand-by, and a family favorite. The pie was popularized around 1850, when someone accidentally mixed the crust and filling and sparked a sensation. Crustless pies became the rage all over America, and were featured on the side of the Bisquick box. Instead of Bisquick, this Paleo version uses 100% unprocessed ingredients, such as almond meal and coconut butter. I love learning a few tricks from ALL my ancestors, both Paleolithic and recent. Serves 3-4.
