“Get Your Greens In” Crustless Quiche

You know when you’ve used all the ingredients for the week and have random things left, just sitting around in the fridge and you think to yourself what can I make with all of this stuff? Well that was my thought with this recipe.

I looked around the refrigerator and we had a bunch of random items: asparagus, eggplant, jalapeño peppers, avocados, carrots, limes, radishes…and the list goes on. So I grabbed a few different ingredients along with some eggs and put this quiche together.

I recently watched this video that talked about a woman who overcame her MS by changing over to a Primal/Paleo diet. It was really inspirational actually and afterward Jeff summarized it over on his site, so I won’t go into great detail here. But, after watching the video, we both wanted to increase our intake of greens even more. And I bet you can guess what ingredients I reached for to make this recipe. And where the title came from. ;)

It’s fun to just grab a bunch of stuff and throw something together…and you better believe I had my fingers crossed that it was going to come out tasting good. ;) But I knew it came out well when it got Dave‘s seal of approval on his first bite. :)

Get Your Greens In Crustless Quiche

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon grassfed butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 jalapeño peppers, sliced
  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 1/4 cup italian sharp cheese, and more for the top
  • 6 organic eggs
  • sea salt & coarse ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 avocado, sliced

Directions Makes 3-4 servings

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F
  2. Set a medium size frying pan to medium heat and melt the butter. Then add the chopped onions.
  3. While the onion is cooking chop the jalapeño peppers and add to the pan.
  4. While the onion and peppers are cooking, be sure to stir every so often, rinse off the asparagus and chop into 1 inch pieces.
  5. If you see the onion starting to brown turn the heat to low.
  6. Then crack the eggs into a medium to large size bowl and whisk to combine.
  7. Add the fresh asparagus to the eggs. Then add the pepper & onion, straight from the pan. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.
  8. Shred some cheese into the bowl. (I didn’t measure and I estimate that I used about a quarter of a cup)
  9. Mix it all together and pour into your favorite baking dish. (I used my 10-inch fluted round pie dish.)
  10. Then slice one avocado into thin slices and layer across the top. I made mine pretty by following the round style of the dish. :)
  11. Then shred a shallow layer of finely graded cheese across the top. That way when it melts it gives a nice golden top.
  12. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
  13. Make sure all the sides have browned a bit along the edges and you can always do the toothpick test to make sure the center has completely set.
  14. Serve and enjoy! :)
