When looking for a ‘meatless’ meal - I often turn to quiche. The absence of a traditional crust shouldn’t make you shy away from this recipe. After an initial stir-fry step, the topping is a simple mixture of grated cheese and beaten eggs. It’s a great lunch idea when you need a change of pace.
When I found this recipe on catholiccuisine - there was a disclaimer: “This quiche tastes much better than it looks”... I love an honest statement like that. I wasn’t expecting much, but I thought it was a beautiful quiche.
I usually think twice about quiche because of the extra step of making a crust. This leaves me without that excuse. I'm sure you could substitute other vegetables for the spinach & mushrooms.
I do need to mention that it is best freshly baked. Often I reheat quiche in the microwave with good results - but this one needs to be served right away.
