Now you are  in healthy broccoli quiche recipe. I wanted to make a gluten free quiche and not attempt a pastry crust with gluten free flour so the potato crust is a good option.  It is also lower in fat than the pastry.  You could substitute other vegetables and add cooked chicken if desired.

Ingredients: Healthy Broccoli Quiche Recipe

Crust:

  • 3 cups grated potato
  • ¼ cup grated red onion
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 tbsp butter, melted

Filling:

  • 3 cups fresh broccoli, chopped in bite size pieces.
  • 3 green onion, chopped
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 4 eggs
  • ¾ cup milk (or half and half cream for richer flavor)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • pinch of cayenne

Directions:

  • Grate the potatoes into a colander, add ½ tsp of salt and let drain for 10 minutes
  • Squeeze out the excess moisture from the potatoes and combine with the grated red onion and the egg.
  • Press the mixture firmly into the bottom and sides of a greased 9” pie plate.
  • Brush with melted butter.
  • Bake the crust for 20 minutes at 425F or until lightly browned.
  • Reduce heat to 350F.
  • Steam the broccoli for 4-5 minutes, drain and refresh in ice water to maintain the green color.
  • Sprinkle the broccoli, green onion and cheese in the crust.
  • Beat the eggs with the milk or cream, salt, pepper and cayenne and pour over the broccoli.
  • Sprinkle with paprika.
  • Bake at 350F for 30-40 minutes until a knife inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  • Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Note:  Substitute frozen hash browns for the grated potatoes as a shortcut.
