easy does it. breakfast. lunch. dinner. breakfast-for-dinner. whatever you want it to be. :)

yes, this is another one of those awesome i’m-too-lazy-to-go-get-groceries recipes. a little organic baby spinach, cheese and eggs from the fridge. smoked salmon from the freezer. some herbs from the pantry. and you’re all set to make an easypeasy crustless quiche! yummers.

– preheat oven to 375F

the lox:
– 40g wild sockeye smoked salmon (thinly sliced)

(tip: you can easily find smoked salmon in the frozen seafood section at the grocery store… the smoked salmon just needs to thaw and it’s ready-to-eat!)

quiche batter:
whisk together the following ingredients in large prep bowl:
– 1-1.5 cups chopped organic spinach
– 5 large eggs
– smoked salmon / lox (thinly sliced)
– sprinkle 1/2 tsp herbes de provence
– 1/3 cup aged white cheddar (grated – or another cheese that melts well, such as queso fresco or light mozzarella)
– season w/ ground black peppercorns

 

bake it:
– pour quiche batter into a round, oven-safe baking dish (prepped dish with extra-virgin olive oil)
– bake quiche for 20-25min at 375F, or until golden brown
– allow to cool on rack before cutting quiche

food styling:
– cut quiche evenly into pie wedges
– serve quiche wedge w/ organic mixed greens & your fave (homemade!) salad dressing

  1. Yum! I love a quiche or frittata with lots of stuff in it (a high ratio of veggies to eggs). And you are right that this recipe would be great any time of day!
