Easy smoked salmon quiche with flatbread crust
A healthy diet and regular physical activity are essential to optimal health. The earlier people make lifestyle changes, the more likely they will lower their risk of heart disease and other health problems later in life.
This Easy smoked salmon quiche with flatbread crust can be a part of your healthy diet. Healthy does not mean bland.
I love this quiche because it is a delicious, healthy meal that is easy to prepare without worrying about making the dough for the base.
I used store-bought flatbread instead of making the traditional crust. And so, I reduced the amount of refined carbohydrates because another part of healthy eating and weight management is controlling refined carbohydrates.
This quiche is my favorite: a creamy filling studded with soft leeks and zucchini, luxurious folds of smoked salmon, and crumbled goat cheese.
It’s a recipe everyone should have in their cooking repertoire, whether for a simple lunch or a picnic.
Served with a tossed salad, this smoked salmon quiche with flatbread crust is also a nutritious and delicious lunchbox option. It combines all the healthy ingredients you need for a balanced diet.
The creamy flavor comes from goat cheese and a good quality full-fat yogurt.
I did not use the cream for a healthy change of pace.
This recipe is also a good choice for women who have endometriosis.
After years of experimentation, I have to say that eating dairy products like organic Greek yogurt or goat yogurt, goat cheese, and feta cheese does not trigger endometriosis flare-ups. But I avoid processed cheese and non-organic dairy products. I eat only goat yogurt daily and the other cheese occasionally.
Why do I call this Easy smoked salmon quiche with flatbread crust healthy?
This smoked salmon quiche with a flatbread crust is a healthy option for three reasons:
I substituted organic yogurt with 8% fat for the cream.
