Veggie Quiche

H-Burn veggie quiche with leeks, asparagus and herbs.

Quiche is such a wonderful treat because it makes a lot of food, and everything is one pan! This one is one of my favorites.

H-Burn Dinner | Serves 2
Prep time: 20 minutes | Total time: 1 hour 10 minutes

Ingredients

2 large leeks, white and light green parts, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup sliced shiitake mushrooms
1 cup sliced asparagus, tough ends trimmed, sliced diagonally into 2-inch pieces
2 cups fresh spinach
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
4 large eggs
1/3 cup coconut milk
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Rinse the sliced leeks thoroughly to remove any grit and drain well. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Sauté the leeks and mushrooms for about 5 minutes, until the mushrooms have given up their liquid. Add the asparagus and sauté for 4 minutes more, or until the leeks are nearly tender. Add the spinach and thyme. Stir for about 1 minute, until the spinach wilts. Remove the skillet from the heat, season with a pinch of salt and a crack or two of pepper, and set aside to cool a bit.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and coconut milk, another pinch of salt, and a few cracks of pepper. Stir in the veggie mixture. Pour into a 9-inch pie plate and bake for 30 minutes, or until the quiche is golden brown and puffed and the center is set. Let the quiche rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Sprinkle with the basil.
