I made a simple quiche for lunch. Coming from an Asian culture, I have no idea what a quiche is at all. So, this is one crazy and brave attempt for me!
Instead of following a solid recipe, I was inspired by Stacy Snacks’s Quickie Quiche recipe and MindBlogging’s Mini Mushroom Quiche recipe and I ended up whipping up my own version.
The end product: a crustless mini quiche in a 6oz ramekin featuring onions and orange peppers.
How did it taste? A little flat, but with a little bit of ketchup, the flavour was greatly enhanced!
1 tablespoon egg white (can be substituted for an extra tbsp of milk)
1 tablespoon milk (I used 1%)
1/2 small onion, diced
1/2 small orange pepper, diced
1 stalk scallion, diced
Handful of grated cheese
Seasoning: Dijon mustard, salt
Cilantro, for garnish
I love how versatile this dish is. You can practically add in any vegetables you have on hand, and if you want, you can throw in some meat to add flavour (or leave it out like I did). Regardless of what you add in or leave it, the quiche would still taste wonderful.
What makes this dish healthy? The egg is a good source of protein, and the vegetables will help you fit in an extra serving of vegetables (or 2 servings if you use a bigger ramekin). The grated cheese will also help to boost your dairy intake.
