One serving of this quiche contains 17 grams of protein, which will help keep your hunger in check throughout the day. It also contains three grams of fiber, a nutrient that plays a major role in digestive health.

The cauliflower rice used for the crust is nothing more than cauliflower broken down into rice-size pieces using a food processor, then simmered or sauteed until soft. The cauliflower rice in this quiche recipe allows for a reduction in carbs and no gluten, plus benefits like fiber, vitamin C, potassium and folate.
