Broccoli, Squash, and Roasted Capsicum Crustless Quiche
This crustless quiche is an easy lunch or dinner you can throw together using your favorite veg. It’s also vegetarian and gluten-free.
1 large red capsicum, halved and deseeded
3 cups broccoli florets
250g pack ready to heat brown rice
10 medium eggs
5 tablespoons skim milk
1 tablespoon wholegrain mustard
1¼ cups peeled butternut squash, grated
⅓ cup finely grated parmesan
1 bag baby spinach drizzled with balsamic vinegar, to serve
Heat the grill to high. Put the pepper halves, cut side down, on a baking sheet, and grill for 5 min or until the skins have blistered. Transfer to a bowl, cover with clingfilm, and set aside to cool. When cool, uncover, carefully peel away the skins and discard. Dice the flesh.
Meanwhile, heat the oven to 180ºC/fan 160°C/gas 4 and line a 20cm square baking tin with non-stick baking paper. Steam or microwave the broccoli for 2–3 min until tender, then coarsely chop. Heat the rice according to the pack instructions.
Whisk the eggs, milk, and mustard together in a large bowl, then add the pepper, broccoli, rice, squash, and parmesan, and stir to combine. Transfer the mixture to the prepared tin, then bake for 30–35 min until golden, puffed, and set.
Set the quiche aside for 10 min before removing it from the tin.
Serve warm with the dressed spinach, sprinkled with black pepper, or for something more substantial, try a beetroot, avocado, and quinoa salad.
