Crust (double for a thicker crust - this just covers the bottom)

  • 2 Tablespoons tapioca flour
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3-4 Tablespoons coconut oil or butter or a mix
  • 1-2 Tablespoons cold water if needed

Egg mixture

  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup diced smoked fish
  • 3-4 cups spinach sauteed until wilted
  • 1 lemon zested
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste


  • Heat oven to 350F (175C) and grease the bottom of a pie dish with a little coconut oil.
  • Mix the dry crust ingredients together in a medium bowl. Add in the coconut oil and/or butter with a fork and mix until crumbly and the dough starts to come together. If the mixture is too dry, add 1 Tablespoon of water at a time and mix until a soft dough forms (you may need more - I used about 2.5 Tablespoons). Once the dough forms a soft ball (you don't want it too wet), it's ready to go!
  • Press the dough until flat in the pie dish until even.
  • Bake for 5-7 minutes until barely set.
  • While the crust cooks, in a large bowl beat the eggs with coconut milk until smooth. Carefully stir in the fish, spinach and lemon zest. Finally, add in salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add the liquid egg mixture into the slightly cooled crust.
  • Bake 30- 35 minutes or until set to desired firmness (if you leave it in longer the eggs will have more structure; less time and it will be a little softer like traditional quiche).


You can make this quiche crustless as well! Just grease the pie dish and add the egg mixture directly in.
