Quick & Easy Vegetable Quiche | 5 Ingredients or Less | Breakfast Meals , Main Course | Meatless Meals

For some reason the idea of making quiche used to always scare me–maybe it’s the fancy name–but it is actually very easy and pretty fool-proof. I originally got this recipe from my friend Shannon, who inherited it from her very adorable and very French mother-in-law. For this particular version, I used a frozen broccoli, chopped onion, & cheddar cheese combination, but you could literally throw in pretty much any vegetable (or even meat!) that you have on hand.

As far as the crust goes, you can use a ready-made rolled refrigerated version, which is where the quick & easy part comes in, or, for slightly more effort (but a tastier, flakier crust) you can make your own using this easy tutorial. In any case, DO try this recipe, and sooner rather than later! You might just find you’re making it all the time!
Assemble the veggie quiche ingredients: eggs, cheese, broccoli, pie crust and seasonings.

Here is what you need:

1 pie crust
4 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup cream
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
 1 10 oz bag frozen broccoli
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon season salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
 

Roll out the pie crust in a clear glass pie pan.

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place crust in pie plate. Finely chop onion and set aside.

Mix the eggs, cream, milk and seasonings until thoroughly blended.

Step 2: Whisk eggs until well blended. Add milk, cream, salt, and pepper and whisk again.

Spread the broccoli in the prepared pie crust.

Step 3: Place finely chopped onions on crust then top with broccoli.

Top the vegetables with a layer of shredded cheese to form the filling of your quiche.

Step 4: Top vegetables with shredded cheese.

Pour the egg and cream mixture over the top of your shredded cheese and vegetables.

Step 5: Pour egg mixture over cheese, then fold over crust edges as desired.

Bake this delicious quiche in the oven until it's golden brown and set.

Step 6: Bake for approximately 35-45 minutes or until set in the center. If cheese is browning too quickly, cover with foil.

The yummy vegetable quiche should rest for a few minutes before serving.

Step 7: Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

A delicious slice of vegetable quiche makes a yummy lunch or dinner for everyone in your family.

P.S. Here are a few other combinations you might want to try in place of the broccoli:

Tomato Florentine

1/2 onion (diced) + 1 package frozen spinach (thawed) + 1 can fire-roasted dice tomatoes (drained)

Southwest

1/2 onion (diced) + 1 package frozen corn + 1 can green chiles (drained) + 1 can Rotel tomatoes (drained)

Ham

1/2 onion (diced) + 2-3 cups cooked ham (diced)
