Quick and easy preparation is the key to this recipe which can be paired with fresh fruit for a delicious breakfast or lunch or try it with stewed heirloom tomatoes.
I usually have all of these ingredients readily available in my pantry and I love quiche! I make it frequently and I will sometimes make two at a time to freeze them in portions so I can have quiche any time I want.
You’ll need just a small amount of gluten free baking mix. I used Gluten Free Bisquick. You can easily substitute regular Bisquick for this recipe.
The only cheese I had today was colby/jack. Also try all cheddar or Parmesan. Delicious!
Mix your ingredients by hand. It will only take a couple of minutes and you don’t want to pulverize the vegetables.
Smooth the top. Just look at that beautiful green! The spinach gives this a wonderful, appetizing color.
Try a meatless ragout, substituting eggplant for the typical beef.
We do a lot of experimenting with cooking with only vegetables. It’s not that we don’t like meat, of course. It’s just not necessary for us to always include meat.
Ragout is like a thick stew. It usually includes beef, but we’ve substituted eggplant instead.
I minced four large cloves of garlic. This is a really handy tool for mincing garlic. It’s easy to use and does a great job. I suggest rinsing it out immediately after use so it’s not difficult to clean.
It’s so easy to make beautifully minced garlic.
Like most of my recipes, I start off by sauteing chopped vegetables in olive oil.
To save time, I’ve added canned tomatoes. I had some fresh basil but dried basil will work as well.
The eggplant and mushrooms are going to soak up all that exceptional flavor. If using fresh herbs, add them with the tomatoes instead of at the sauteing.
This will be cooked covered to really stew those flavors together.
Cook it down until the liquid is almost completely gone.
I’ve served it with grape tomatoes and sliced olives over fresh spinach with a little balsamic vinaigrette and garnish with fresh parmesan. Yum!
This is a low calorie meal. You can make it more substantial by serving it with pasta or rice. I may try it with chick peas later to add some protein.
