Today’s gluten-free Crustless Spinach Quiche recipe is absolutely delicious. How delicious? Well, as you can see, it was almost half gone before I managed to get a photo of it.
It’s a naturally gluten-free recipe, which means that no gluten-free specialty ingredients are required. With naturally gluten-free recipes, you use the same ingredients that you used before going gluten free.
The ingredients that always tasted wonderful to you as well as to the rest of your family. Plus, no extra cost involved when you’re using such ingredients.
This quiche is also easy to make. Recipes shared on gfe are always easy, right?
This recipe comes from Trish, a local and longtime friend of mine. While the ingredient that gets top billing in this recipe is spinach, Trish often uses her own fresh garden greens in combination with spinach or instead of spinach.
That’s good information as we have our first ever garden in progress (wish us luck!) and we have been receiving produce boxes as well. So, you can sure we will be using whatever greens we have on hand to make this quiche and we’ll be making it often.

You may remember that Son eats both gluten free and dairy free. I’m happy to tell my dairy-free readers that I even made dairy-free versions of this quiche and my original crustless quiche recipe using homemade cashew cream (a recipe which I will share in the near future), a dash of nutritional yeast, and a very small amount of Follow Your Heart Parmesan cheese. The resulting quiches were a hit!
When I eventually share my friend’s homemade cashew cream recipe, I’ll also share that dairy-free version of this quiche recipe.
But let’s get back to the original version of this gluten-free Crustless Spinach Quiche. When I asked all of you who follow gfe on Facebook whether you’d like me to share Crustless Spinach Quiche or Zucchini Potato Bake next on gfe, you all overwhelmingly chose the quiche recipe.
Of course, some of you asked for both—smart!!—and a few of you asked for the Zucchini Potato Bake recipe. No worries because I’ll definitely share that as my next recipe! (Update: There’s the Zucchini Potato Bake recipe!)
One more thing I want to mention about this gluten-free Crustless Spinach Quiche recipe is that it’s crustless without the addition of any flours. My earlier Crustless Quiche Lorraine recipe requires a very small amount of gluten-free flour (a gluten-free all-purpose flour mix like my Two-Ingredient Gluten-Free Flour Mix or a single gluten-free flour, such as rice flour, cassava flour, or coconut flour).
But again, no flour at all is needed for today’s quiche recipe and I really like that fact. Fewer ingredients and “simpler” are always better when it comes to gluten-free recipes in my opinion!

Crustless Spinach Quiche Recipe
This Crustless Spinach Quiche is so jam-packed with good stuff that it doesn't even need any flour added to make it self-standing. Every slice is a meal and a delicious and filling one at that! If you wish to cook your bacon and use the bacon grease in your recipe instead of oil, you can definitely do that. You would cook the bacon in the skillet and set it aside to drain before adding onions and picking up the recipe instructions from there. This recipe will work fine with five eggs but I prefer six, particularly if I’m using the greater amount of cheese.

Shirley, I haven’t made quiche in so long, and this looks wonderful. I just used the last of my eggs to make some chocolate mint muffins, but as soon as I get more eggs in the house I making your crustless version. Thanks for sharing my sweet potato crust quiche. Of course, I got sidetracked and found your popover recipe as well, more eggs needed, but boy do they look yummy! Added to my menu for the coming week, thanks!
Shirley Braden says
Hi Nancy–I just saw your chocolate mint muffins recipe. Those muffins look and sound wonderful! It’s hard to beat that flavor combo in my opinion. 😉
We’re blessed with an ongoing supply of eggs from my cousin and her husband. We’re so grateful for that!
I hope you enjoy both the quiche and popovers when you get to make them. They’re definitely two of my favorite recipes and a worthy way to use eggs IMO. 🙂

Does this freeze well?
Shirley Braden says
Hi Kelly–Yes, it freezes great. I would wrap it in plastic wrap and then foil or put it in a large ziploc bag. In fact, you can skip the plastic wrap if you have a large ziploc bag that you can seal well. Enjoy!
Can this be prepared in advanced and refrigerated before baking?
Shirley Braden says
Hi LuAnne–Welcome to gfe! It looks like it’s your first time commenting here. 🙂 If you want to prepare this quiche in advance before baking, I’d recommend mixing everything in a large bowl (and covering that) and then when you’re ready to bake the quiche, give the mix a good stir before pouring it into the pie plate. Otherwise, I feel like you’d have to be concerned about the ingredients settling and not giving you that perfect mix of ingredients with every bite once it’s baked. Hope all that makes sense and that you enjoy this quiche! Now I’m tempted to make it for dinner tonight. 😉
Amy Gutierrez says
This quiche was incredibly delicious. I added mushrooms. I did not use the optional tomatoes. I used frozen chopped spinach that I thawed and squeezed all the water out of before adding. I also used a mix of grated Gouda cheese and sharp cheddar cheese. Turned out very good. I only did 5 eggs but only because I forgot to add one (had it on the counter but somehow missed seeing it).
Shirley Braden says
Hi Amy–I’m so thrilled your version turned out so well! Quiche recipes are fairly flexible, which I love because that means you can add preferred ingredients and leave out ones that you don’t care for or don’t have (or even accidentally forget). Thanks so very much for taking the time to share your success with this recipe! 🙂
Dana Bass says
Shirley, this recipe is incredible! Thank you! I switched bacon out with mushrooms! Delicious 😋
Shirley Braden says
Dana–I’m absolutely thrilled that you enjoyed this quiche so much! 🙂 And using mushrooms instead of bacon is a wonderful switch! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave such a wonderful comment!
Hope you’re having happy holidays!
