If you do not have time to make a pastry crust, try this crustless Quick Quiche. This is an easy broccoli quiche with egg, milk, basil, scallion and cheese; a perfect breakfast idea or a simple weeknight supper.
Yield: Serves 4
- 2 cups small fresh broccoli florets
- 2 scallions, both green and white parts, sliced (about 1/3 cup)
- 1/3 cup finely chopped fresh basil
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- salt and pepper to taste
Bring 3 cups water to a boil. Add the broccoli florets and cook until tender, about 6-7 minutes. Drain well and chop the florets into fine pieces. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, flour and turmeric powder. Stir in broccoli, basil, scallion, mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup of cheddar cheese (keep 1/4 cup of cheddar cheese for sprinkling on top of the quiche). Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Spray 4 ramekins with cooking spray. Spoon the mixture into each ramekin, dividing evenly. Sprinkle with remaining cheddar cheese.
Place the ramekins on a baking sheet. Place the baking sheet on the middle rack of the oven and bake until golden brown, about 35-40 minutes. Serve with crusty bread and a mixed-green salad, if desired.
