Ingredients

Quiche Egg Mixture

  • 6 medium eggs
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Quiche Filling

  • 2 cups chopped spinach
  • 1 zucchini grated
  • 1 small yellow onion
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350º F.
  • Dice your onions.
  • Heat a nonstick skillet on medium high heat. Add the olive oil. Sautee the onions for 5 minutes. Next add the zucchini and sautee for 2 more minutes or until there is no water in the skillet. Lastly add the spinach and sautee for 3 minutes. Add the nutmeg and stir. Remove from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs with salt, black pepper, the cottage cheese and the vegetable mixture.
  • Line a 9″ inch baking tin with some parchment paper and add the mixture to it. Sprinkle the grated mozzarella on top.
  • Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until puffed up and golden brown on top.
  • Let it cool for 5 minutes before cutting. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

Customize your healthy crustless quiche by swapping the filling ingredients. I have tried adding ham, only with spinach or zucchini, use any leftovers of chicken, or whatever veggie you have on hand for the filling. The combinations are endless. I also think that onions and eggs are a great combo!
If you aren't a veggie fan you can leave them out and bake the egg mixture and it will result in a tasty cottage cheese crustless quiche.
This recipe is great to prepare for meal prep. You can also make it using a muffin tin, so you have individual portions, no cutting is required. Cook for 15 minutes approximately.
Storing: You can store it in a glass container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
Reheating: You can reheat them in the oven for 5 minutes at 350º F and add more cheese if you want to!
