Description

This super simple quiche recipe is made with fresh broccoli florets, cherry tomatoes, and cheddar cheese and is perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner. I kept things easy by using a prepared refidgerated pie crust and accessible veggies.

Notes

  • Feel free to add in any vegetables you like! Start with the egg mixture and make it your own. I also like to add fresh spinach, sliced Roma tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, bell peppers, or zucchini.
  • If you prefer your broccoli (or any other veggie you use) to be more tender, you can saute them in a little butter or olive oil before adding to your pastry crust.
  • This quiche recipe uses milk coconut milk instead of heavy cream; however, milk also works perfectly.
