High-Protein Spanish-Style Quiche
Sun-kissed, simple and delicious food. This low-carb quiche is packed with protein as well as flavour!
This quiche is seriously delicious - chicken, chorizo, peppers, onions and peas are all held aloft in a rich, eggy and cheesy mixture, seasoned with delicious smoked paprika. Instead of the usual carb-heavy and fat-laden pastry, all this can be baked in a Lo-Dough base instead, removing the fat and carbs, replacing it with gut-healthy fibre instead.
If you want low-calorie quiches - don't make the filling bland and flavourless by taking out all the fun stuff - just replace the pastry!
