Safe Quiche

During Project Elimination it has been a time of exploration for everyone. Some of us trying new foods, some eating less food, some eating more.

One of the most difficult things is finding a recipe that suits all of our special diets. Or at least close. Or having to substitute for various ingredients, and I have had all sorts of things go very wrong by eliminating gluten,corn,dairy in a recipe and trying to substitute safe ingredients. Some serious mistakes that I have not done since my teens when I really started cooking! :-)

Last night we found a Winner! Derek would have been better with less flour, Abby with less onion, me with fewer calories, but the compromise was just fine for everyone. I did make a few separate for Derek where I added some crumbled turkey sausage.

This was a weight watchers recipe I found on Pinterest.

Mini Zucchini Quiche

Prep time: 25 min
Cook time: 20 min


coconut oil to grease muffin tins(originally called for cooking spray could use paper liners if you tolerate them)

2 small uncooked zucchini, finely chopped (I finely chopped in the Ninja)

1 large onion(s), finely chopped and sauteed.(recipe called for uncooked)

1/2 cup finely grated carrot( raw or saute with onions to soften)

3/4 c to 1 cup cooked millet or rice(recipe originally called for 1 cup parmesan)

6 large egg(s) (I used 5 and 1 egg white with success,might try 4 and 2 whites next)

1/2 cup(s) gluten-free flour (originally called for all purpose)

1/4 cup(s) basil, fresh, finely chopped

2-3 Tbsps coconut oil, (in liquid form) (originally called for olive oil)

2 tsp baking powder (homemade to avoid corn)

1 tsp sugar

1 tsp pink himalayan salt

1/2 tsp black pepper


Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat two 12 nonstick muffin pans with coconut oil( or paper if not an allergen issue)(makes 18-24 depending on how many add in's you use)

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl; spoon egg mixture into each prepared hole about 3/4 of the way full.

Bake until bottoms are golden brown and quiche muffins are cooked through, about 20 minutes. Remove pan(s) from oven and let quiche cool for a few minutes in pan(s); remove quiche to a wire rack to cool more (and repeat with remaining ingredients if necessary).

This recipe claims that they freeze and reheat well- I threw 6 in the freezer last night for Derek to grab on his way to work in the morning. We will see how well they reheat.
