Low-Calorie Quiche Lorraine - simple, healthy and indulgent food
The old saying says 'Real men don't eat quiche', but here at Lo-Dough the male contingent beg to differ. Using Lo-Dough as a pastry replacement, anybody can enjoy these indulgent tasting quiches with friends and family without having to worry about the fat, carbs and calories found in standard short-crust pastry.
Easy meals, with leftovers for the next day
Simple to make, low-calorie quiches are yours if you make them with Lo-Dough. A whole quiche will provide four perfect lunch portions alongside a salad, so this ideal for meal prep too.
Enjoy hot or cold and get creative with your fillings - we've gone classic, but you can pretty much put in whatever your heart desires.
- 1 piece of
- 2 rashers of low fat bacon, sliced into lardons
- 5 cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley
- A small sprinkle (approx. 10g) of cheddar cheese
- 150ml of half-fat crème fraiche
- 4 eggs
- 2-3 sprays of fry light oil
What you'll need
This diet-friendly recipe is possible with:
- 1. Preheat the oven to 160C/325F/Gas 3.
- Grease a shallow 20cm quiche tin with a couple of sprays of fry-light oil and line with a circle of grease-proof baking paper.
Take a piece of
Lo-Doughand roll out gently between two of the thin pieces of paper found in its packet - you are only looking to flatten the Lo-Dougha little.
4. Push the
Lo-Doughinto the tin evenly, taking care to push it into the corners and create an upright edge.
5. Fry/grill the bacon lardons, drain on kitchen paper and then arrange in the
Lo-Doughcase with the halved tomatoes and chopped parsley.
- 6. Whisk the four eggs and half-fat creme fraiche in a jug, season to taste with salt and pepper (we think the bacon and cheese is salty enough and just go for a twist of pepper) and carefully pour over the bacon and tomatoes. Try not to spill over the sides - egg sizes vary and you may have a little more than you need. Top with a sprinkling of the cheese.
- 7. Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes, carefully covering with foil for the first half of the cooking time. The egg mixture will puff up a bit like a souffle as it cooks, but will soon drop back down as the quiche cools. Enjoy hot or cold!
