Whole30 Mushroom-Leek Quiche

mikecleavenger
This Whole30 quiche is to die for!  We use shredded hash browns for the crust, which is crispy and buttery.  The cashew cream sauce makes a great dairy-free custard, and the mushroom and leeks are a heavenly combination!  Meal prep this quiche on Sunday and enjoy breakfast all week long!
Prep Time 1 min
Cook Time 40 mins
Servings 6 slices

Ingredients
  

  • 1 pound frozen hash browns thawed
  • 1 ½ teaspoons sea salt divided
  • 6 tablespoons ghee melted, divided
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • ½ cup almond milk
  • 1 ½ tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 ½ tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 6 large eggs whisked
  • 1 cup mushrooms sliced
  • 2 leeks sliced

Instructions
 

  • Soak the cashews in cold water for at least 4 hours.
  • Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Place hashbrowns on a large kitchen towel, squeeze out as much water as possible.  In a large bowl mix hashbrowns, 4 tablespoons of melted ghee, and ½ teaspoon of salt. Press hash brown halfway up the sides of a springform pan.  Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
  • While the crust is cooking sauté mushroom and leeks in 2 tablespoons of ghee.  Cook on medium heat making sure not to burn the leeks.  It should take about 10 minutes before the leeks are nice and tender.  Set aside.
  • In a blender, combine cashews, almond milk, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, dijon mustard, and garlic.  Then add your whisked eggs and pulse a couple of times to incorporate. 
  • Turn down the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spoon the mushroom-leek mixture on top of the baked hash brown crust.  Pour the cashew-cream custard on top.  Bake for 25 minutes or until custard is set.

Notes
