Gluten-free quiche caprese in an oven dish

Gluten-free quiche caprese

A delicious gluten-free caprese quiche inspired by the famous caprese salad. Quiche with lots of tomatoes, mozzarella and basil.

And of course with a filling of eggs and lactose-free cream.

This quiche is delicious to serve at brunch or a potluck dinner. Cut the quiche into small pieces, so that many people can enjoy it.

Of course you can also serve the quiche as a main course. Then this dish is for about 4 people. I like to serve it with a salad for some extra vegetables.

The ingredients of the gluten-free quiche caprese

I briefly explain below which ingredients I use that need some explanation, so that you know which products I choose for my gluten-free quiche.

The recipe for the crust of the quiche is based on this recipe by The Loopy Whisk.

The crust

  • Schär Mix It Universal and buckwheat flour: this time I chose to make my base with a mix of this gluten-free flour mix and buckwheat flour.

    I used 100 grams of flour mix and 50 grams of buckwheat flour. You can also choose to use only the gluten-free flour mix.
  • Xanthan gum: xanthan gum makes gluten-free dough smoother, easier to work with and less likely to fall apart.

    It really improves the quality of your gluten-free baking recipes. That is why I always recommend purchasing this once, one package will last you a long time.
  • Gluten-free breadcrumbs: sprinkle this over the bottom before adding the filling. The breadcrumbs ensure that your bottom does not get too soggy.

The filling

  • Cherry tomatoes: I use cherry tomatoes for the filling. Tasty roma tomatoes are also possible, cut them into slices.

    Please note: the low FODMAP amounts for tomatoes have changed in 2022. A low FODMAP portion for cherry tomatoes is now 45 grams (3 tomatoes). For regular tomatoes this is 65 grams (1/2 tomato) and for roma tomatoes 75 grams (1 tomato).

    In addition, the low FODMAP quantities for bell peppers have also changed. Red bell pepper is now low FODMAP up to 43 grams. Green peppers are allowed in larger quantities, up to 75 grams.

    Have you never reacted to bell peppers or tomatoes? Then you can simply make this dish with the ingredients below. You can also use red bell peppers instead of green ones.

  • Are you still in the elimination phase or do you have the idea that you are reacting to bell peppers and tomatoes?

    Then I recommend using green bell pepper in this dish and replacing the 300 grams of cherry tomatoes with 300 grams of roma tomatoes or 260 grams of regular tomatoes, sliced.

    Then you stay within a safe low FODMAP portion. If you choose to use cherry tomatoes, a 1/7th portion of this quiche is a low FODMAP portion.

    Cherry tomatoes are low FODMAP up to 45 grams per serving.
  • Lactose-free cream: as cream I use the lactose-free cream from the brand MinusL.
  • Buffalo mozzarella: you can also substitute this for a normal mozzarella.

    I personally like the taste of a good buffalo mozzarella so much better than a watery cheap mozzarella from the supermarket. That’s why I choose buffalo mozzarella.

    I seem to be reacting to cherry tomatoes. Before I knew they lowered the amount, I had a problem with a full serving. I love cherry tomatoes as we don’t get very good tomatoes where we live, in Florida. I am so sad I have to eliminate them. I will try Roma tomatoes in this and cross my fingers. They’re just not as tasty. By the way, I love the Loopy Whisk recipes. So I am sure the crust will be perfect! Thank you for this recipe.
