The Keto Crustless Spinach Quiche recipe needs to be on your list of easy-to-cook keto meals. All you need to do is to prepare the quiche mixture and bake it in the oven. That’s it! Literally, just let the oven do all the work while you do something else or just simply relax and wait for the food to be ready.
This time, I used spinach as the main vegetable, but you can replace it with chard. I recommend getting creative with your low-carb vegetables in this dish. It’s a great way to add more fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants to your keto diet.
Try mushrooms, tomatoes, purple cabbage, broccoli, onions, and garlic. Different colored vegetables contain different antioxidant carotenoids, which are the plant pigments responsible for its color. You’ll be adding a color pop to your dish while also increasing the anti-inflammatory nature.
I also used cheddar cheese in this recipe. However, you can choose any type of cheese to your liking.
This easy keto spinach quiche without crust recipe is excellent for breakfast and lunch. It’s so convenient to bring to work for lunch.

Wash the spinach, let it dry, then cut into small pieces. Chop bacon slices into small squares. Set aside.
In a frying pan on medium-high heat, sauté bacon with a tablespoon of olive oil for 2 minutes then add chopped onion in and stir until the onion becomes tender and transparent. Add chopped spinach to the pan and continue stirring for 2 more minutes then remove from heat.
In a bowl, beat eggs with sour cream. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add diced or shredded cheddar cheese or swiss cheese in and mix with a spoon. Some people might add heavy cream or canned coconut milk to make this dish creamier.
In a baking dish or a pie pan, combine the egg mixture with the spinach mixture. Mix well using a spoon. You can put a little extra Parmesan cheese on top of the quiche batter. For extra protein, you can add diced ham on top.

How to reheat keto quiche
To reheat a keto quiche, warm it in the oven at 350°F for about 10-15 minutes or until heated through, or microwave individual slices for 1-2 minutes on medium power, checking frequently to avoid overcooking.
Does spinach need to be cooked before putting in quiche?
Yes, it’s recommended to cook spinach before adding it to quiche. Cooking spinach first removes excess moisture, which can make the quiche soggy, and also reduces the spinach’s volume, allowing for a more even distribution throughout the quiche. I recommend a quick sauté or blanching for this purpose.
Can I use frozen spinach to make quiche?
Yes, you can use frozen spinach to make quiche. You just need to make sure to thaw and drain it thoroughly to remove as much excess water as possible. This step is crucial to prevent the quiche from becoming watery. I would suggest squeezing the spinach after draining to ensure it’s as dry as possible before adding it to your quiche mixture.
Can spinach quiche be frozen?
Yes, spinach quiche can be frozen. After baking and cooling the quiche, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil, or place it in an airtight container. Properly stored, it can be frozen for up to three months. When ready to eat, thaw it in the refrigerator overnight and reheat it in the oven or microwave before serving. This method helps preserve the quiche’s flavor and texture.
