Low-Calorie Quiche Using Lo-Dough As A Pastry Replacement

Another classic combination of flavours find their way into a Lo-Dough quiche. Grilled (and skinned) red pepper, wilted spinach and salty, tangy feta cheese, alongside slowly caramelised onion, make this a vegetarian taste-explosion. 

At 189 Calories and 6g of carbs per quarter, this quiche is perfect for slimming and fitness, without sacrificing on flavour. 

You need to put the love in - by slowly caramelising the onions (for a minimum of 20 minutes) you get an incredible sweetness and similarly, you can up the sweet flavour of the pepper, by grilling/roasting it first. You actually want to char the pepper a little - once the skin comes off, any signs of burnt blackness will disappear anyway, but the flesh underneath will be perfectly cooked (if short for time, these are available in jars). All these details count - the flavour you will be rewarded with for the effort you put in will make it all worthwhile. 

Quiche, broadly speaking is a healthy, veg and protein-packed dish, but when encased in (admittedly delicious!) fatty, carby pastry, it can become calorie-laden and problematic for dieters of all varieties. By swapping this out for Lo-Dough, the problem is soon solved - with the added bonus of a massive fibre hit, thanks to the Lo-Dough 'case'.

Quiche is proving to be one of the more popular uses for Lo-Dough. FOr more inspiration, check out our pastry recipes.
