One night as I found myself brainstorming for dinner, I had a desire to make a quiche to use a bunch of fresh eggs from a neighbor and a zucchini that was needing to be eaten. I found THIS recipe for a quiche that is filled with cheesiness and I wanted to adapt it to our needs. I also really didn't want to turn on my oven and heat up my house and I didn't have an hour to prep and bake dinner, so I decided to use the recipe as a guide for the ingredients and then do it my own way. And it was a very delicious result. Here's how it went.
I first saute'd some finely chopped red onion and minced garlic in a bit of olive oil and then added one raw zucchini (Italian squash) shredded with my Chef's Envy. (And a sprinkle of sea salt) I cooked it until it was mostly done and slightly browned.
I chopped up some raw spinach leaves and set them aside.
I beat some eggs with 1-2 Tablespoons of almond milk and then added a few squirts of honey dijon mustard, garlic sea salt and a few sprinkles of red pepper flakes and beat until mixed.
Then I combined the saute'd zucchini mixture, raw chopped spinach and egg mixture and mixed it in the bowl.
Then I poured it right back into the pan that was already oiled from the saute'd veggies.
I reduced the heat and let it cook for several minutes. Optional: I sprinkled the top with bread crumbs with the idea that it might be similar to a quiche with a crust, but it really didn't add much to the final product, so I wouldn't add it next time.
Once it was cooked and firm enough, I carefully folded it in half.
Let it cook on low for several more minutes until it feels firm through and cut to serve.
