This Roasted Herb and Tomato Quiche is a little more hands on but totally worth it, especially if you’re making it to share with someone special. Feel free to substitute roasted sunflower seeds instead of the pine nuts for a nut-free option (though I have not tested this version out). Fresh herbs and tomatoes shine in this summery breakfast, brunch or anytime dish.

When you are fodmap intolerant (including beans), carb sensitive and avoid processed food and all recipes have one or all the above. Can you add at least one option of wholefood, natural, or even a raw vegan recipe in the mix?
