I haven’t had quiche a lot but the best one was “Cowboy Quiche” served by our host Rochelle @ Smith Hotel Bed and Breakfast on our last trip to Utah, Spring 2014. It was delicious, healthy and quite filling.
Since then, I have been planning to make but then the cheese part wasn’t very convincing. And I wasn’t sure on skipping because every recipe calls for it.
After debating for a while I decided to make a no cheese Quiche and I was surprised with the results.
It is light, puffy and delicious 🙂 Also, one dish meal that is great for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner.All you need is few eggs and vegetables of your choice.
So, lets get started:
Step 1: Pick veggies of your choice – I added a pepper, a potato, few beans, 1 onion and few tomatoes(from my friends garden) . Heat a pan and add 1/2 tsp of butter and sauté onions. Once the onions are translucent, add the chopped vegetables and tomatoes and sautee for 2-3 minutes. I added some spices like Cumin, coriander and curry powder. It is optional. Saute for another minute and let it cool.
Step 2 :Preheat oven to 350 F and grease a quiche pan. Beat 5 eggs until well blended, add 1/4 cup of milk, 2 tsp of wheat or almond flour, salt and pepper and finally add the sautéed vegetables mix until well coated.
Step 3: I used 9 inch ceramic pan, bake it for 45-50 minutes. Since each oven vary check after 35-40 minutes, when a butter knife inserted it should come out clean and once done let it cool for few minutes.
