Description

Quiche

I grew up hating quiche. I never liked the crust, and really didn't like the flavor. But when I discovered the idea for a crust-less quiche, I was willing try it. The results were amazing! It's my husband's all-time favorite way to eat greens from the garden now! If you are in a hurry, you can leave out the fresh onion, garlic, and mushrooms, and it will still taste great (but if you have time, it's more than worth the trouble to add the veggies in--the flavor they add is amazing!). Happy Cooking!

Notes

If you double the recipe, it fits perfectly in a 3qt pyrex baking dish. 

Instructions

WASH and chop greens, onion, garlic, and mushrooms (if using).

STEAM together in a steamer basket kettle for about 10-20 minutes, until greens are tender (greens on bottom, onion and garlic on top). If you use spinach, it will take less time to cook!

COMBINE tofu and remaining ingredients in a food processor or blender. (It will be thick so you may need to help it along if you use a blender).

BLEND until smooth.

POUR cooked greens and tofu mixture into bowl and mix together well.

PREHEAT oven to 350F.

SPRAY a pie pan or casserole dish.

POUR batter into pan.

BAKE at 350F for 40 minutes, or until golden and the center is not mushy.

ALLOW to cool for about 10-20 minutes before slicing and serving. 

SERVE hot. It's amazing with fresh salsa or a nice salad with fresh tomatoes!
