What are the three main parts of a quiche? The crust, the filling and the cheese. The crust and the cheese are the two places where most calories pile up and so quiche becomes this dreamed of meal that you can only have if you fasted the whole day or you just came back from a hiking trip. Well, not really.
In today's very diet friendly broccoli quiche for two, I used:
2 cups broccoli, steamed
2 tbsp cream cheese
2 large free range eggs (all the way from Hungary, oh my!)
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese
1 cube vegetable bouillon (I love those low salt organic ones)
2 long slices pumpernickel bread (you can use Mock bread too)
2 oz grated Swiss cheese for topping
Preheat the oven to 400F (190C). Blend the broccoli, cream cheese, eggs, Parmesan cheese and bouillon. In a long casserole dish, place the slices of bread or mock bread and pour the mixture on top. Cook for 25 minutes and place the Swiss cheese on top. Broil for 5 minutes or until golden brown and allow to cool off for 10 minutes. Serve with sour cream or Greek yogurt.
I find this quiche to be very easy to transport to work for lunch or a late snack!
