We love a quiche, It’s a classic dish, but sadly pastry and slimming don’t go well together. Well unless you want to spend all your calories and Points on a tiny piece of pastry? Personally, we would rather save them for a bottle of wine!

With that in mind, we have made this Smoked Salmon and Broccoli Quiche ‘crustless’, so you can enjoy full flavour for less calories. Removing the pastry makes our slimming friendly Smoked Salmon and Broccoli Quiche perfect for calorie counting and diets like Weight Watchers!

If you’re not a fan of smoked salmon, you could swap it out for some asparagus or use poached salmon instead. Our top tip for this recipe is to add a bit of quark to the egg mixture. You won’t taste this but we think it makes for a creamier filling.

Can I use cream cheese instead of quark

Reply

    Steve CowderoyFriday 8th May 2020

    Hi Kim, thanks for getting in touch with us, you can use a light cream cheese in this recipe. We use Quark as it has a lower fat content than most cream cheeses. Hope this helps and please let us know how you get on with the recipe.

I made this last night. Can I re-heat it?

Reply

    Holly LevellMonday 18th May 2020

    Hi Kelly, This is best eaten fresh but if you allow any leftovers to cool, make sure to refrigerate. You can keep leftovers of Smoked Salmon and Broccoli Quiche in the fridge for approximately 3 days.
    I wouldn’t recommend reheating the quiche because of the salmon but it’s great eaten cold.

Is this quiche freezeable? Thanks.

    Emma TTuesday 24th September 2019

    Hi Mandy,

    Egg based recipes like this may not defrost successfully as they can become watery…it’s probably best to make this fresh, and it will keep in the fridge for a few days ????

Hi does it have to be smoked salmon as I prefer unsmoked and roughly how many grams ?
Thank you

    Holly LevellThursday 14th May 2020

    Hi Lorna, it would work fine swapping the smoked for unsmoked salmon and use the same amount 4-6 slices

I absolutely love this recipe! I’ve always been put off crustless quiches because I don’t like cottage cheese but this works so well with the quark. I used flaked poached salmon instead of smoked & I added some asparagus and baby plum tomatoes. I have it cold with salad & baby new potatoes, absolutely delicious!

SusieSaturday 10th February 2018

Have I missed the answer to the question regarding not using quark as the lady doesn’t eat cheese? I don’t either so would like to know if this would work without. Thanks.

Can this be frozen?

    Hi Sandra,
    We’ve not tried freezing it, but it may end up a bit watery because of the egg and broccoli when deforsted. If you try let us know how you get on 🙂
