Your lifestyle, your quirk
If there’s one meal that’s good for every meal, it’s quiche. It’s an egg-based casserole/pie dish, so it’s great for breakfast, but if you give it substance, it’s good for supper, too. Of course, this is a meatless recipe, so I bulked it up with large chunks of vegetables and lots of cheese. It’s really easy to make and serves several people, so read the recipe below to make a yummy dish.
6-7 large eggs
Two handfuls of cheese (it doesn’t have to be perfectly accurate)
One tomato, sliced into big chunks
Chopped broccoli (about ½ cup)
½ cup milk or cream
1 frozen pie crust
What you do:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix in eggs, cheese, and milk. This is going to be a lot of your own preferences, so if you don’t like cheese, leave it out. If you do like it, make sure to put in a lot, because the egg flavor is really overwhelming. The milk helps sweeten the mix a bit.
Whisk/beat this mixture for several minutes, until there are no discolored spots where the egg and milk haven’t mixed. I did this by hand with a whisk, but you could also just use a big spoon.
On a board, cut up the tomato. It should be in large chunks that are still bite-sized. The tomato pieces really take the place of sausage or chicken.
Cut the stems off the head of your broccoli. I bought a fresh head of broccoli, so I broke of chunks to taste. But it came about to be about half a cup.
Sear the broccoli in a pan for about five-seven minutes with some olive oil, until it’s soft. The broccoli pieces don’t have to be completely cooked because they’ll cook some more in the oven.
Take the broccoli and add it into the bowl with the wet ingredients. Also add in the tomato pieces.
Pour the entire mixture into your pie crust. If there’s too much, you can ladle out some pieces or some egg.
Bake for about forty minutes. I like my quiche to be browned on the top a bit, but you can leave it very soft. Just be sure to test it with a fork first! Stick a fork in and pull it out – if it’s clean, you can eat it. If the quiche is still runny, it needs to bake some more.
I hope you enjoy this recipe – but of course, you can always make it your own! Add in some browned sausage, bacon, or add another pie crust on top. You could add in some salt, pepper, or more milk. It’s completely up to you.
