Meatless Monday : Easiest Quiche Ever

Closeup on autumn vegetables on cutting board

It has been a long time since I have linked up with Deborah and Tina for Meatless Monday, but I have had so many inquiries every time I post a picture of quiche, I thought it was a good time to share.

I usually make it when I have some sort of left over veggie in the fridge. Vegetable needs to be pre-cooked before putting it in the quiche.

I keep this gluten free, and thus there is no crust. However, if you or your kids/significant other prefer with crust,  a store bought one works fine. I bake the crust for about 10 minutes before filling it.

Crust with the one on the left, crustless on the right :

I usually serve it with salad :

It heats up beautifully, to take to work, or for breakfast :

    Sounds delicious! I never would have thought to try yogurt instead of the milk or cream. I was planning on making something like this for work breakfasts next week so I might just have to experiment with using yogurt. Thanks for the idea 🙂

      Makes it creamier than milk but not as heavy as cream. I always experiment with mixing the portions… everything seems to work.
