Happy Wednesday! I am certainly glad to be halfway through this week. I ran after work over by the beach, finishing at the Naples Pier to capture the sunset for my sister’s birthday today. That left me in a good mood and I was feeling creative and healthy tonight and invented a new go-to meal for me! Now I often have breakfast for dinner… and I just love eggs and spinach. So instead of my typical spinach omelet, I ventured out on a limb and made a quiche! This quiche has approximately 190 calories and 30 grams of protein. I baked it in a small ramekin but it would work in any comparable dish.
Spinach Parmesan Quiche
4 egg whites
2 cups raw spinach
1 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degree. Cook the spinach over medium heat in a skillet. Crack egg and egg whites into a bowl and whisk together. Add the parmesan cheese and cooked spinach and stir. Spray your baking dish with a non-stick cooking spray and pour mixture in. Bake in oven for 20-30 mins. You will know it is fully cooked by inserting a knife into the center and it comes out clean and it is no longer runny or wet.
I plan on making this again soon, incorporating different veggies and flavors in the quiche. Peppers, mushrooms and 2% reduced fat shredded cheddar would be one idea or broccoli and a bit of goat cheese….mmmmm! This recipe is for 1 quiche and if doubled I would recommend baking in two smaller dishes so the quiche would still cook thoroughly. This recipe is definitely a no brainer and made with ingredients that are often on hand…or at least always stocked in my fridge! Let me know any other healthy quiche ideas out there!
