Gluten-free Butternut Squash and Kale Quiche. This gluten-free butternut squash and kale quiche is loaded with fresh herbs and creamy goat cheese to lend the perfect make ahead breakfast.




  • 1 cup almond flour
  • ¾ cup arrowroot powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp granulated garlic
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup olive oil

Butternut Squash

  • 1 small butternut squash
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ tsp sea salt


  • 5 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp milk (I used coconut)
  • 1 Tbsp fresh freshly chopped oregano
  • 1 Tbsp freshly chopped basil
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup kale, chopped
  • ¼ cup herbed goat cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 9-inch pie or tart pan.
  2. Combine the almond flour, arrowroot powder, baking soda, garlic and sea salt and mix.
  3. Add the egg and olive oil and mix until the dough comes together in a ball.
  4. Press the dough in to the tart pan and bake for 10 minutes and then remove from the oven.
  5. Cut the neck of the butternut squash off and peel off the outer layer. Slice the butternut into ¼ inch rings (I prefer a mandolin for this). You will need about 20-25 slices.
  6. Place the squash on a baking sheet and drizzle on the oil and sprinkle with salt and roast for about 15 minutes and then remove from the oven.
  7. While the butternut is cooking combine the eggs, milk, oregano, basil, salt and pepper in a bowl and whisk to combine.
  8. Layer the cooked butternut on the crust and then add the goat cheese and chopped kale. Pour the egg mixture on top and then bake for 20-25.
  9. Let set for about 5 minutes and then eat while hot or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.


  • The quiche reheats really well and is also good at room temperature.
  • Crust can be made ahead of time. Cover and store in the refrigerator overnight
  • If you decide to us a tart pan make sure that it is deep enough to hold all the filling.
