Zucchini Crustless Quiche

This recipe is one that I’ve adapted from www.allrecipes.com to lend it towards those living with cancer.

There is cheese in this recipe but I have used Jarlsberg cheese because it is known to affect the process of angiogenesis (creation of tumour blood vessels) – see the work of the angiogenesis foundation; Dr. William Lee.

INGREDIENTS:

3 small zucchini

1 onion, chopped coarsely

5 eggs

1 ½ cups of grated Jarlsberg cheese

½ teaspoon of fresh or dried parsley

¼ teaspoon sea salt

1 pinch ground black pepper

1 cup of almond meal (or chosen flour) (*See note)

1 teaspoon baking powder

Paprika for garnish

METHOD:

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a quiche/flan dish & set aside.

2. Put all the zucchini, onion, eggs, 1 cup of the chees, parsley, sea salt & black pepper into a food processor & process for about 1 minute until all ingredients are finally chopped. Scrape the sides of the bowls if necessary.

3. Add the flour, the remaining cheese & the baking powder & process for a further minute, scraping the bowl if necessary.

4. Scrape the mixture into the quiche/flan dish. Sprinkle mixture with paprika & bake for 1 hour (or until set). The quiche is cooked when a sharp knife, inserted into the centre of the quiche comes out clean).

NOTE:

* If you are following the acid/alkaline approach to eating use almond meal instead of an all-purpose flour. Almond meal is far more alkaline.

* This recipe falls just short of the 80:20 acid/alkaline ratio.

* This recipe has a 5:1 (fat + protein:carbohydrate) ratio and is therefor a good ketogenic meal.
