Garden Vegetable Crustless Quiche

October 11, 2013

Most people who know me know I don’t like eggs. It’s a texture thing for me so I usually stay away from things like quiche. However, an awesome teammate of mine made this for me when I was on my soft food diet and I loved it. I thought maybe it was because I was so damn sick of soup, but I made it again post soft food diet and I still really liked it!

Quiche

Difficulty: Medium – Cooking quiche is kind tricky
Prep Time: 30 min
Cook Time: 40 – 50 min
Total Time: 1 hr 20 min
Yield: 8-12 servings
Taste: Great

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups egg substitute
3 large eggs
1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese, divided
1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 (16-ounce) carton cottage cheese
Cooking spray
4 cups sliced zucchini (about 4)
2 potatoes, diced
1/2 onion, chopped
1 cup finely chopped green bell pepper (about 1)
1 package (6 oz) fresh spinach
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 tomatoes, thinly sliced

Procedure:

1) Preheat oven to 400°.

2) Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add zucchini, potatoes with onions, green pepper; sauté for 10 minutes or until tender. Mix in spinach and cook for 1-2 minutes.

3) Beat egg substitute and eggs in a large bowl until fluffy. Add 3/4 cup cheddar cheese, 3/4 cup Jack cheese, milk, flour, baking powder, salt, and cottage cheese.

4) Add the zucchini mixture and parsley to egg mixture. Coat a 3-quart casserole dish with cooking spray. Pour zucchini and egg mixture into dish.

5) Top with the remaining 3/4 cup cheddar cheese and 3/4 cup Jack cheese. Arrange tomato slices over cheese. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350° (do not remove dish from oven), and bake for 25-35 minutes or until lightly browned and set.

Note: Substitute corn or mushrooms (I hate mushrooms) for some of the vegetables, if you wish.
