Veggie-packed Quiche

Quiche is a wonderful comfort food, but most recipes are packed with fat and calories. Each fork full typically offers a minimal amount of veggies.

Here's a great recipe for a veggie-packed quiche that tastes fantastic.

2 cups flour
1/2 cup butter
pinch salt
fresh ground pepper
5 Tbs cold water

Combine dry ingredients and cut in butter until it resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in water, adding 1 Tbs at a time until it's moist and forms a ball.

Roll out very thin and place in pie plate. Cut off extra edges and crimp. Prick center with a fork and place in oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

1/2 sweet onion, chopped
2 cups chopped fresh spinach or small package frozen, thawed
1/2 cup broccolli, chopped
1/2 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 small zuchinni, sliced into thin quarters
1/2 cup almond milk or skim
2 eggs or egg replacer
1 Tbs thyme
1 Tbs chopped fresh parsley
1 Tbs basil
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 cup mozerella or 2 oz goat cheese

Combine all the ingredients by stirring. Spread in pie crust and bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until the top is slightly browned and the middle is firm.
