Have recently been trying new quiche recipes. They are quick, fast, and tasty! Fave beans and zucchini have been plentiful in the garden, so the latest one used them with garlic, salt, and olive oil as the "crust" and turned out hearty and delicious! The beauty of this recipe, is that you can substitute or add additional veggies that you enjoy! Try it with onions, asparagus, broccoli, kale, chard, bell peppers, and other cheeses (feta or blue cheese)... tasty varieties are endless!
1 cup milk (or alternative milk drink of choice)
~2 cups cleaned and boiled fava beans
4 garlic cloves
1 portabella mushroom
~1 cup shredded zucchini
~ 1/2 cup cheese
A few dashes of salt and pepper
***A previous quiche included a yam crust in replacement of the favabeans. This made the dish sweeter, but with less protein. Follow the recipe as above, but replace the crust with thinly sliced yams lightly coasted with olive oil and baked for ~ 10 minutes prior to adding the veggies and egg mixture. Again, veggies can vary. I used chard, kale, zucchini, button mushrooms, and broccoli with feta cheese... and it was tasty!
Quiche is a great way to increase your your protein and fiber in the morning! My 14 month old even enjoyed both recipes!
