Last Friday I appeared again on the Greek cooking show Chef On Air (Chef ston aera), this time to cook some gluten free recipes. (You can see it here, but it’s all in Greek)
My philosophy is that a healthy diet or a diet with certain dietary restrictions doesn’t have to be bland or boring, which is I why I believe cooking is so important.
So, I cooked 2 recipes that were Mediterranean inspired: plenty of vegetables and tomatoes and a dessert that was not so Mediterranean (flourless brownies).
One of my recipes, which I actually make often at home, even though I don’t avoid gluten, is the flourless spinach quiche. Having a French mother in law I have enjoyed her delicious quiches, but sometimes I do try to avoid the crust for the obvious reasons.
This crustless gluten free quiche has plenty of vegetables, some Greek cheese, milk and a bit of cream and eggs. The one I made on the show had spinach and mushrooms, but I use any vegetables that are in season. And because it kind of looks like pizza, my son loves it and I find an easy way to offer him vegetables. And if you are worried about calories, you will be happy to know that 1 piece (1/8 of pie) of this quiche will only set you back about 150 calories.
