I cannot get enough of this Roasted Cauliflower, Mushroom and Goat Cheese Quiche with Quinoa Crust! It is a flavor sensation and it’s a brilliant recipe to make if you are entertaining at lunchtime.

The cauliflower, mushroom and goat cheese combination is sublime in this quiche and the pièce de résistance is the healthy quinoa crust. There’s a lot going on in this recipe, so let me break it down.

The main ingredient for the quiche filling is the best blank canvas vegetable: cauliflower. To make the filling, I roast the cauliflower, to bring out its natural sweetness, together with mushrooms. Then I mix cream and eggs, and add roasted cauliflower and mushrooms. Instead of a classic pastry quiche crust, I use a quinoa crust. Quinoa is a fantastic wheat-free alternative and it makes a lighter crust than traditional pastry.

To make Roasted Cauliflower, Mushroom and Goat Cheese Quiche with Quinoa Crust, you will need the following ingredients:
