Healthy Crustless Quiche Recipe

I love how healthy this quiche recipe is. It’s loaded with protein and very little fat other than what comes from the cheese.

And I can’t even begin to stress how easy it is to throw together. It’s such a simple recipe.

Ingredients
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cup – 2 cups filling of choice (sauteed veggies/meat — I used a whole bag of cooked, chopped spinach)
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 cup 1% cottage cheese
  • ¼ cup Almond flour
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Additional spices/herbs or choice, optional
  • 2 cups grated cheese of choice (I used cheddar cheese)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Spray an 8 by 8-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Combine the eggs, greek yogurt, cottage cheese, flour, salt, and pepper, in a medium bowl. Stir together, or blend in food processor until the mixture is smooth. Pour the mixture into a bowl with the filling ingredients. Add ½ the cheese and mix. Pour the mixture into the baking dish and smooth out the top. Top with remaining cheese.image4
  3. Bake until set, about 45 minutes. Remove the baking dish from the oven. It will be puffed up, but will fall slightly as it cools.image3
  4. Allow it to cool, then, refrigerate. Cut it into squares and serve.
