Garden Crustless Quiche

Posted in Breakfast, Food & Recipes, gluten-free, Health/Nutrition, lunch by nicolejanaye on August 1, 2012

I’ve been on a spree of making these quiches lately. The cost, efficiency, and nutritional content of these suckers make them undeniably one of my favorite recipes. Once you get the basic idea and recipe down, you’ll have a bounty of ways to change up the flavors simply by altering the ingredients to what you have in the kitchen. Well that’s pretty much my take on these ‘egg baskets’ (what my dad likes to call them), use whatever ingredients you have in your house.

 

 

 

Garden Crustless Quiche

  • 3 eggs
  • 2 stalks kale; stripped from the stem and chopped finely
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 zucchini; chopped
  • 1 Tbs pine nuts
  • Spices: Salt/Pepper, curry powder, cumin, red chilli pepper, and garlic powder
  • Coconut oil (*substitute-butter or earth balance)
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 450.
  2. Take the coconut oil and rub the inside of a muffin pan so that the quiches slide out after they are done cooking.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  4. Scoop out equal portions into the muffin pan.
  5. Cook for 15 minutes (this time may be different depending on the size of your pan-mine was a medium pan)

And that’s it! Just some of the reasons why I love these so much: Inexpensive, easy to make, nutritious, portable, delicious, the variety of flavors are endless, and anyone can make them! You can also sprinkle feta or your favorite cheese on top during the last 5 minutes of cooking.

 

Stay posted on the blog for the recipes for these beauties…
