Sometimes we just want something light for dinner – we all do. And what’s better than a Smoked Salmon with Asparagus and Goat Cheese Quiche? This is something you don’t have to feel guilty about eating. Smoked salmon, asparagus and goat cheese nestled in a light egg custard. It is a filling meal with a light salad or just as is.

This is a light quiche made without the typical crust that most quiches have. The salmon adds a gentle smokey flavour and goes exceptionally well with the tender asparagus. The goat cheese, fresh dill and lemon zest give some tartness and earthy flavour. And for those who follow the keto diet, this smoked salmon and asparagus with goat cheese quiche is also keto-friendly.

gluten-free quiche…the details

I love making a quiche. It is probably one of the easiest meals to make. The quiche is made mostly of eggs. Then you can add your favourite veggies, proteins and cheeses.

In this recipe, the quiche has two layers of smoked salmon, asparagus and goat cheese. The deliciously flavoured eggs are poured over each layer and what makes this an exceptional dish is the topping of caramelized onions.

The only drawback is the time it takes to bake. To have exceptional results this stunning dish takes time. But the good thing is, it takes only minutes to prepare. So you can leave it in the oven baking while you relax or make a light salad for a healthy meal.

      I would leave out the milk, use full cream and add 2 more eggs
