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!)

whisk together the following ingredients in large prep bowl:
– 1-1.5 cups chopped organic spinach
– 5 large eggs
– smoked salmon / lox (thinly sliced)

as they say, sometimes keeping it simple can go a long way. this delicious canape recipe is a crowd-pleaser — and better yet, it calls for just a few ingredients and only takes minutes to pull together. beauty.

the zucchini:
– 1/3 zucchini squash (sliced into half-moons)

food styling:
– spread a layer of sheep cheese on light rye crackers
– season w/ ground black peppercorns
– add a layer of zucchini half-moons on the cheese
– top w/ wild sockeye smoked salmon (thinly sliced)
– season w/ ground black peppercorns
– pairs nicely w/ your fave sauvignon blanc
