This Easy 5-ingredient Recipe can be Made in Advance

by: Lara Katz

This crustless quiche is a great brunch recipe. You can put whatever vegetables you like in it, prepare it in advance, and have a great hot dish to serve at your brunch that doesn’t take a lot of work. Even better, this crustless quiche is super healthy and has only 5 ingredients (not including the salt and pepper).


1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
*1 package (142 g/5 oz) fresh mixed greens, such as spinach, kale, swiss chard
*1 small package (227 g)/1 cup, sliced mushrooms
7 eggs, lightly whisked
salt & pepper to taste
*substitute your own selection of vegetables/stir fry and allow to cool before adding to egg mixture
  Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease a 9 inch pie plate with nonstick cooking spray.
  Heat oil in a medium size skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions, cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms, cook another 3 minutes. Add mixed greens and cook until wilted, 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes.

  Place eggs in a medium size bowl, add salt and pepper, and mix lightly.

  Add vegetable mixture. Egg/vegetable mixture can be placed in the fridge overnight at this point.

  Pour egg/vegetable mixture into pie plate sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. 

  Bake in preheated oven 30-40 minutes, or until eggs are set and lightly golden brown on top. If the top of quiche still appears runny, place under the broiler for approximately 2 minutes and watch carefully.

  Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.

  Leftovers reheat well in microwave.

(Serves 5-7 people)
