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

ham & fennel quiche

i heart quiche. and totally loving how easypeasy it is to make a homemade, crustless quiche. simple goodness.

so believe it or not, i still have some leftover ham in my freezer from the holidays! and as much as i love grilled ham & cheese sammies, they can get a little boring — and i can only eat so much bread in a week. the solution? crustless ham & fennel quiche. low-carb, simple goodness. :)

– preheat oven to 375F

the fennel:
– remove 1 fennel bulb from green stems & fronds
– slice bulb into quarters along the vertical and remove the inner core
– slice fennel into thin sticks

quiche batter:
whisk together the following ingredients in large prep bowl:
– fennel sticks
– 6 large eggs
– leftover honey ham (sliced into bite-sized chunks)
– 1.5 tsp herbes de provence (divided)
– 1/3 cup appenzeller cheese (grated)
– season w/ ground black peppercorns

bake it:
– pour quiche batter into a round, oven-safe baking dish
– 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

fennel mushroom & arugula quiche

you know you’re a cooking nerd when… you buy a new kitchen gadget and can’t wait to run home and try it out! so, this little piggy went to market, picked up this oh-so-lovely quiche baking dish — and was dreaming up quiche recipes all the way home… :)

in the frenzy of my new year’s health kick, i stocked up my fridge and pantry with all sorts of yummy produce. juicy berries, winter squash, root veggies and some fresh bulbs of fennel. i knew the fennel would definitely be one of the feature ingredients when testing out the new bakeware. and i was so delighted when this crustless (and gluten-free!) quiche came together so well — the anise flavour of fennel paired really nicely with the earthy notes of the crimini mushrooms and the bitterness of the arugula. yummers.

– preheat oven to 375F

the fennel:
– remove 1 fennel bulb from green stems & fronds
– slice bulb into quarters along the vertical and remove the inner core
– slice fennel into thin sticks

the mushrooms & arugula:
– 1/2 cup crimini mushrooms (diced)
– 1/2 cup fresh organic arugula (rough chop)

quiche batter:
whisk together the following ingredients in large prep bowl:
– fennel sticks
– 6 large eggs
– crimini mushrooms (diced)
– fresh organic arugula (rough chop)
– 1/3 cup light mozzarella cheese (grated)
– season w/ ground black peppercorns
