Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche
One 9" pie crust (store bought or homemade--I used store bought because I was in a hurry.)
1 large head of broccoli, cut into bite-sied chunks
1 whole egg
3 egg whites
Spices/Herbs (I used 1 tsp Penzey's Sunny Paris. You can use the herbs of your preference.)
2 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
- Preheat oven to 375.
- If frozen, thaw the broccoli. If fresh, chop as directed and microwave until hot, but not soft (5 minutes.)
- Spray 9" pie tin with cooking spray. Place pie crust inside.
- Whisk egg and egg white.
- Drain excess water off broccoli, and place in pie shell. Sprinkle herbs over.
- Sprinkle half the cheese over broccoli.
- Pour egg evenly. Top with remaining cheese.
- Bake 35-40 minutes.

Note: this recipe makes a small quiche. The egg filling is not deep. If you want this to be more substantial, double the egg and egg whites. Keep the broccoli and cheese the same.
You can also vary the ingredients. You can use different vegetable, or add meats. Use all whole eggs if you want. Your options are only limited by your imagination and the ingredients in your fridge and pantry.
