Crustless Quiche

A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that I was going to try to recreate a pie that myself and Miss Glade had enjoyed on Mother’s Day.

This is my version, a Crustless Quiche. It is actually a bit of a staple in this house but this is the first time that I have added broccoli, it’s another of those versatile dishes that you can make with any seasonal vegetables.

I think it is best served piping hot with new, buttered potatoes and a crisp salad. Oh! a bit like the one in the picture.

Delicious and as always, minimal effort!

 

Ingredients

1 tablespoon of olive oil

1 chopped onion

1 head of broccoli prepared into spears

I red pepper cut into chunks

4 eggs beaten

100mls milk

200g ย grated strong mature cheddar

1 teaspoon of chives

Method

1. Pre heat the over to 160 degrees.

2. ย Heat the olive oil and sweat the onions until they are quite dry.

3. Add the broccoli and keep it moving so it doesn’t catch the bottom of the pan.

4. Add the red pepper and keep all the vegetables moving for about 5 minutes.

5. Add the beaten eggs, milk and chives to the pan and sprinkle on the cheese.

6. Transfer to an oven proof dish and bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes until the top is browned and the liquid has been absorbed.

7. Serve immediately.

 

Enjoy!

 

 

Have a lovely day!

Do you have a vegetarian option?

Having been a vegetarian since 1990, I am still shocked that it isn’t a given that there will always be a vegetarian option.

Three out of the four members of our family are vegetarians-there is a lot of it about.

Therefore, the savoury recipes will be vegetarian. Before you ask, because invariably we are asked, yes we do eat diary because we are not vegans!

If your not a vegetarian, why not give meat free Mondays a go? You never know you might just enjoy it! But if you don’t, I am sure you could pop any meat of your choice into most of the recipes I will post.
