Crustless Veggie Quiche

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.
