I love Quiche. Quiche is exquisite. But it can also be pretty unhealthy with all the cream and cheese and crust. I tried to make it a little healthier (just a little, though ;P) by using cottage cheese instead of cream. SO GOOD.
Here’s a rough recipe:
approx. 9 oz cottage cheese
Shredded chedder cheese, 1/3 cup?
Spinach (microwaved until a little shrunken, maybe 15-20 seconds?)
10 slices of tomato, halved
salt and pepper to taste
Set oven to 350 degrees. Mix eggs, cottage cheese, salt and pepper together.
Put crust in pan, put in layer of spinach, then onions, then tomatoes. (It will be ruined if not in this order). Sprinkle cheese on top. Pour egg mixture over everything.
Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until it’s not too liquidy. Tell us what you think!
Review: I loved this Quiche. I thought it was AMAZING. However, I don’t know whether to attribute the savory sweetness to the egg/veggie portion or to the crust. I might make this with out crust to find out! (And it’s even healthier!)
The cottage cheese is a unique new flavor, but it still works for quiche – it’s not too different from quiche with cream. It’s also firmer quiche than using milk.
