Crustless Spinach Quiche
This quiche will be the main attraction at your parties and get-togethers with family and friends. In 25 minutes of preparation and 40 minutes of baking, you get a delicious and healthy meal. Here are the ingredients you will need:
A cup of fresh mushrooms, sliced
Chopped onion, a cup
Cured ham, cooked, 2/3 cup, chopped
¼ cup of steamed spinach
3 cups of Muenster cheese or any other cheese you have at hand
A tbsp of avocado oil
1/8 tsp of pepper
Sea salt, to taste
Preparation: Preheat the oven to 350° and in the meantime, sauté the onion and mushrooms in the avocado oil. Once they become tender, add the spinach and ham. Cook and stir until all moisture evaporates. Cook for a bit and then crack and beat the eggs and mix them with the cheese.
Add the veggie mixture and pepper and salt. Mix everything together and then spread the content evenly into a quiche dish or a greased pie plate. Bake for 40 minutes. To know when the quiche is ready, stick a knife into it and see if it comes out clean.
This means that the quiche has been baked. If it does not, continue baking it. Once done, remove it from the oven and leave it to cool down a bit before serving.
Extra tip: As every oven is different, the baking time may vary. Therefore, regularly check it, i.e. every 15 minutes.
This quiche is abundant in protein and therefore, it is filling and satisfying. You get protein from the eggs and ham. From the eggs, you will also get important minerals like zinc, calcium, and iron.
If you follow a vegetarian diet, feel free to remove the ham from the recipe. For vegans, remove the meat and opt for an egg replacement like tofu, chickpea flour or flaxseed and chia seeds.
