ARTICHOKE-FETA QUICHE

This one is rich and eggy…studded with artichoke hearts and melting feta cheese. Pair with whole wheat toast and a fruit salad for your family and you’ve got a quick and nutritious brunch or light supper.

I make all my quiche without crust – in this case, I’d rather have another whole piece than waste my calories on the pastry.

And artichokes and eggs look a lot better on my hips than crust.  I’ll stop now…it’s not coming out like it sounds in my head!

1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 medium onion, diced
Two garlic cloves, minced
One 14-ounce can artichoke hearts, drained, chopped
4 eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon flour
1/8 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/8 teaspoon tarragon
1/8 teaspoon lemon pepper
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, minced
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Coat a 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray and set aside.
Saute onion and garlic in olive oil until soft. Add artichokes and heat through. In a large bowl beat together the eggs, flour, salt, oregano, tarragon, lemon pepper, parsely, and milk. Stir in vegetable mixture and cheeses. Pour into a prepared pie plate and bake for 20-25 minutes or until set in the center. Serve with roasted red pepper salsa and garnished with crumbled feta, if desired. Makes 8 servings.

    Totally great to have stumbled across your blog today. This looks oh so good. Love feta!

  2. This is the first actual food I had after my WLS. I thought I had died and gone to heaven! of course after 4 weeks of nothing but a liquid diet even cottage cheese was a treat. hehe

    Still this is absolutely delicious. I would have paid to have this at a restaurant before my surgery. Now when my friends talk about how deprived I must feel I laugh inside at how little they know! More yummy healthy food for me!

    Hi..I am wondering the best way to reheat this as I am a single person and this recipe serves 8. Thank you so much..I Can’t wait to try this one..

      You could halve the recipe…and make it in any smaller casserole dish.
      But it will also last in the fridge for a good week. I gently microwave it and that works wonderfully!

    You could also make it in muffin tin and then freeze them. They made for a real quick and easy meal and they are portable!
    I love crustless quiche!
