Crustless Quiche with Spring Vegetables Recipe

Just in time for weekend brunch, I’d like to introduce my latest Almond Breeze partnership recipe creation to you guys: a bright and savory Crustless Quiche with Spring Vegetables. This is what happens when you already have eggs, Matt buys extra at the store, and then your farm share comes with eggs. Whoops. We’ve been eating ALL the eggs this week!

You guys know I’m a serious brunch fan, and this quiche does not disappoint. It would be great for guests, or you can make it to heat it up all week for fast breakfasts, which is what our plan was!

As always, this comes together quickly – it does require some time in the oven but the prep time is minimal. First, assemble your Army:

Then cook the veggies! Just sauté them for a few minutes in a pan until soft. Feel free to get creative with the veggies you use in this dish, by the way – they don’t have to be set in stone.

Once the veggies are soft, toss them in a deep pie tin or baking dish (I recommend either a 9 inch pie tin or an 8×8 or 9×9 square dish), then top them with goat cheese. Feta or cheddar would be good here, too, if you prefer it!

Next, whisk together your eggs and Almond Breeze in a bowl, then pour the mixture over the veggies. Sprinkle some parsley on it all, too.

Now it’s ready to go in the oven! 40 to 45 minutes later and you have yourself a meal.

Serve alone or with a side of fruit, toast or roasted potatoes. It would also pair well with a side salad as a light weekday lunch – I’m working from home today so that’s what I’m planning to eat for lunch in a few minutes, plus some sort of carb or grain!

    I love quiches! They’re so easy to heat up for lunches or dinners throughout the week, which is when I prefer to eat them :)

    …could this just be a Frittata?? :) One of my favorite dishes to make – easier to pack up as leftovers and modify with random veggies! This looks great.

    What a delicious, fresh recipe! I love eggs and I love veggies, so this crustless quiche is on the top of my list for recipes to try! I also love that this is so much lighter than other quiches out there, and it incorporates my favourite milk, almond milk! :)

  12. 13

    Oh spring time vegetables! They’re finally here :)

  13. 14

    Looks delicious! Love the incorporation of the lighter spring veggies. We usually do a brunch for Mother’s Day, so this may end up on the menu (especially since I’m GF and want to be able to eat everything I make!).

    Been on a serious search for a crustless quiche that would please even a non quiche lover and I think this may be the winner. Thank you so much for sharing, and good luck on your race!!!
