Broccoli Quiche October 14, 2012

I love quiche and have wanted to make one for a long time. The recipes I have looked at have tons of eggs and don’t seem to be healthy. My sister found this healthier quiche recipe and we made it for dinner. I wasn’t sure what to expect; however, the quiche was really good. You could add meat or other veggies if you like. Just experiment with whatever you want because the sky is the limit. In my opinion, quiche is a great comfort food, and it reminds me of fall.


Broccoli Quiche

1 10 ounce bag of frozen broccoli, thawed

1 refrigerated store bought pie crust, unbaked and placed in pie plate (you can make your own or use a gluten free crust)

1 and ¼ cups part skim ricotta cheese

1 egg and 2 egg whites (do not save the egg yolks)

1 cup cheddar cheese

1 Tbsp Dijon mustard

1 tsp oregano

¼ or a little more tsp pepper

Pinch of salt

½ cup red onion chopped and sautéed (we used dry minced onions)

Mix all ingredients accept broccoli, together in a large mixing bowl; just until eggs are incorporated. Fold in the broccoli. Pour the filling into the pie crust.  Spread so the mixture is even.

Cook for 35 to 40 minutes at 375 degrees.

You could also add ham, bacon, mushrooms, spinach, or anything else you’d like.
