Crustless Zucchini Quiche

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • ½ tablespoon olive oil or avocado oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bunch green onions, diced (reserve some green scallions for topping)
  • 1 cup sliced baby bella mushrooms (I used two because they were about to spoil)
  • 3/4 cup grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 small red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup sweet corn, fresh or frozen
  • 1 2 medium zucchinis, sliced into ¼ inch rounds 
  • Freshly ground salt and black pepper
  • 6 large eggs
  • ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk (or any milk)
  • 2 tablespoons sifted coconut flour (or sub 1/4 cup regular flour)
  • 3-5 large basil leaves, julienned
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar  mexican cheese, divided. I used 1 1/2 cups  (1/2 cup inside the egg mixture, 1 cup to top) because I wanted the top of the quiche completely covered. It was delicious with this extra cheese, but I think the recipe would still be delicious with the original amount of cheese too.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 9 inch deep dish pie pan (or a 9 inch springform pan) with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, almond milk, flour, basil, 1/2 cup shredded cheese and a little salt & pepper.
  3. Bake for 35-50 minutes or until egg sets, puffs up, and becomes slightly golden. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes before cutting into 6 slices. Allow pie to completely cool before covering and storing in the fridge.
