There’s nothing quite as enjoyable as a good quiche and this keto Festive Goat Cheese & Kale Quiche is as tasty as they come. The pastry, so buttery and light, it’d fool any grain eater into thinking it was the real deal!

It’s one of those go to recipes you’ll revisit time and time again. Great for the Holiday season just or a lazy brunch. Or why not make on a Sunday and keep in the fridge to use for lunches in the week? Stores well for up to 4 days in the fridge and freezes really well too.

This looks so good! Do you think coconut flour would work instead of almond? My partner can't eat almonds, but I think we'd both enjoy this.

Hi Natalie, I haven't tried it with coconut flour but if I were to substitute it, I would use less coconut flour and more liquids (add an egg) as coconut flour is a lot more absorbent (I generally use about 1/3 cup coconut flour per cup of almond flour). You may have to try and see what works best as you make the dough. I hope this helps!
