Crustless Quiche – Syn Free (Healthy A)
A quick, easy and tasty quiche, syn free
Today, for lunch, I wasn’t really sure what to make. I had plenty of batch items in the freezer to choose from but, wanted something different. Originally, I was tempted by an omelette but I’ve had a bit of bad luck with them recently. I thought I would give a crustless quiche a try. After all, it’s syn free so slightly better than the Pasta n’ Sauce quiche.
Using slices of ham as a replacement crust, it’s extremely simple to do. The ‘official’ slimming world recipe states that cottage cheese should be used, but this wasn’t available at my local shop. Instead, I substituted this for some 0% fat Greek style yoghurt. I would say the results were just as good.
Obviously, you’re free to use whatever ingredients you wish in the quiche. However, in my attempt today, I used a bag of microwave steam-fresh vegetables, some more sliced ham and mushrooms.
Overall, this recipe is ready in less than half an hour. Ideal when time is of the essence.
Crustless Quiche - Syn Free (Healthy A)
- 15 slices cooked ham
- 4 eggs
- 170 g fat free Greek style yoghurt
- 80 g reduced fat cheddar
- 100 g sliced mushrooms
- 1 packet microwave steam fresh vegetables
Pre-heat the oven to 190 degrees C (375 degrees F, Gas Mark 5).
Spray a quiche dish with Fry Light, and line the bottom of it with slices of ham. The dish and ham that I was using needed 13 slices to cover the bottom completely.
In a bowl, mix the 4 eggs with the fat free yogurt until it is completely mixed, with no lumps. Add around three quarters of the cheddar cheese.
Add the packet of steam fresh vegetables to the lined quiche dish, and pour over the egg mixture.
Add sliced mushrooms to the top of the quiche, along with some torn up slices of ham.
Sprinkle the top with the remainder of the grated cheddar. Bake for around 25 minutes, or until the quiche is set.
