Crustless Vegetable Quiche

Crustless Vegetable Quiche

Eggs are a fantastic option for breakfast or brunch because they are such a terrific source of protein. Unfortunately, finding creative ways to prepare eggs can be a challenge. Quiche is a great option for adding variety and flavor to your morning serving of eggs, but the crust can be loaded with saturated fat and calories. Luckily, it is possible to enjoy a crustless vegetable quiche recipe that tastes great without the excess fat!

Our delicious vegetable quiche is packed with vitamins, nutrients, and flavor. It is a good source of protein, vitamins A and C, riboflavin, calcium, phosphorus, and selenium. One slice gives you a serving of vegetables for the day before the sun is up! And this quiche is not only for your morning meal; it is hearty enough to be served for dinner and leftovers can be taken to work for lunch the next day.

In addition to being tasty and nutritious, our crustless vegetable quiche is easy to make. It can even be made ahead and heated up if you want a quick breakfast all week long, or you have big plans for entertaining a large group of people. The quiche is delicious by itself, or can be served with whole grain toast, fruit salad, or beside a bed of dark, leafy greens.

    I made this over the holiday weekend – everyone really enjoyed it!! I did cook in the skillet instead of using the oven as it was a hot morning already – this is going in my rotation!!

    I do these on Sunday morning in muffin tins and store in a gallon zip bag in fridge for an easy breakfast for the week.

    I make basically the same thing but it's called a frittata. I saute assorted veggies with garlic and seasonings then pour eggs over the top. Let it cook thru on stove top on low and finish the top under broiler. Then add some cheese on top if you like. It's much faster than this recipe. Also it's in one pan. I don't use any milk in the eggs.

    This recipe was phenomenal! Has anyone ever tried to freeze this? I would love to make extra, and I think it would work.

    Would it be possible to make this vegan? Can it be made with some sort of egg substitute and omit the cheese?

      Job, Yes exactly. Use a vegan egg substitute for equal measure and don't use the cheese.

    Do we need to make all these or can we mix and use only some as long as they remain breakfast,lunch and dinner meals?

    I’m curious if there is a way to make it with all whole eggs, no whites. I hate throwing out the yokes but don’t want to ruin the recipe.

      Emily, Yes, use 3 large whole eggs and omit the whites. 🙂

    Serves 6 with a total of 41 smart points so that makes 7 sp per portion, right??

      Patricia, Slice the quiche into 6 equal pieces and each slice equals 4 smartpoints.

    This is an awesome recipe any time of year … but especially summer/garden time .. any abundance of vegies in the garden are acceptable in this dish!!

    Do you have to soak the sundried tomatoes or do they reconstitute in the quiche?

    Reply
    • Gale Compton  June 11, 2017

      Uma, Soak just to soften up slightly or use the jar variety.
