This low calorie, low carb quiche makes for a delicious lunch or light dinner. Its high protein content will keep you full and satisfied and it’s a tasty way to get some veggies in at lunch time.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 small red pepper, finely chopped (I like sweet pointed peppers)
  • 1 small head of broccoli, quarter each floret
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 6 free range eggs
  • ¾ cup milk
  • ½ tsp. salt + ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • 1 level tsp. dried basil
  • ½ cup grated mozzarella
  • ¼ cup (approx. 50g) of feta cheese, cubed

Slice of low fat crustless quich and salad

Method

  • Preheat oven to 175/350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9 inch quiche dish.
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat, fry the onion, peppers and broccoli for a few minutes, then add in the garlic and fry for another couple of minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, crack 6 eggs into a large bowl, whisk together then stir in the milk, basil, seasoning and mozzarella.
  • Spread the vegetables onto the base of the quiche dish. Pour the egg mixture over the veggies, making sure there is even distribution then scatter the feta cubes on top.
  • Bake in the middle of the oven for approx. 25 minutes, then allow it to cool for about 10 minutes before serving with a mixed leaf salad.

Note: This can be kept in the fridge for up to 3 days and warmed up before serving.
