Lucky Clover Quiche * low carb * gluten free * feingold

Have you ever tried to find a food to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day that does not contain green food dye?  Not easy.   St Patricks day recipe for shamrock shaped quiche I found this on Pinterest and I thought I could adapt it to be a low carb version and something we would all enjoy.

I used my low carb pie crust recipe I had just figured out for my low carb Lemon Meringue Pie and adapted a spinach quiche recipe for the filling.
