Mini Quiche Tarts

These mouth-watering quiches make such a delicious snack. We’ve made the base out of almonds and gluten free oats and the filling is eggs, sun dried tomatoes, kale and red onion with a dash of nutritional yeast.

Traditional quiche is not usually a healthy option as it generally contains quite a lot of cream cheese. For this nutritious alternative we’ve substituted cream cheese for skimmed milk and used nutritional yeast to give the cheesy flavour. We’ve also used a mix of whole eggs and egg whites to help manage cholesterol levels.

You can choose any fillings you like instead of the sun drie
