Broccoli Quiche

Prep Time 20 mins
Cook Time 1 hr 10 mins
Servings 3 people

Ingredients
  

  • 1 pie crust homemade or store-bought
  • 3 cups fresh broccoli chopped roughly
  • 3 green onions cut into small pieces
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 large eggs (for a vegan alternative: use an egg replacement powder or silken tofu.)
  • 1 cup 3.8% milk. (If using a milk alternative, oat milk works best.)
  • cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese (if using a vegan alternative, be sure it melts well)
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • tsp salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350F
  • Heat the olive in a pan over medium heat. Add the chopped broccoli, onions, and garlic. Add a little salt and pepper and cook for several minutes, tossing a few times until broccoli is tender.
  • If making your own pie crust, bake it for 8 minutes. If using a store-bought pie crust (make sure it's thawed fully if frozen), warm it for 3 minutes in the oven.
  • Egg filling: add the eggs, milk, and parmesan cheese to a mixing bowl and whisk well. Season with the remaining salt and pepper.
  • Layer ¾ cup of the shredded cheddar and mozzarella cheese into the bottom of the warm pie crust.
  • Pour the egg mixture over the cheese. Sprinkle the remaining ¼ cup of cheese.
  • Bake at 350F for 45-60 minutes. Cool for 5-10 minutes.
