If you’ve noticed, I have been all up into healthy recipes lately. I really should get Wife of the Year Award for supporting Big Daddy in his quest to eat healthier and lose weight. Sometimes, I’d much rather do a little more cardio than do without carbs. He’s gone to the dark side I’m telling you!
Apricot Spinach Quinoa Crustless Quiche Recipe is very similar to an egg white omelet. Think of it as an egg white omelet full of quinoa and spinach!
It’s full of protein, which is very good for breakfast. The apricots add just a touch of natural sweetness and flavor to this recipe.
Apricot Spinach Quinoa Crustless Quiche Recipe Tips
- Between the spinach, quinoa, and nutritional yeast this is a very ‘earthy’ recipe. You can easily omit the nutritional yeast and add 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese.
- I used 2 whole eggs and 4 egg whites. You can use 4 whole eggs and 2 egg whites. Or, you can use all whole eggs. I don’t recommend all egg whites however, it doesn’t hold together well using just egg whites.
- Additionally, you may replace 1 cup of the spinach with 1 cup of chopped broccoli.
- As well, you may use sliced Roma tomatoes instead of the apricots.
- You can even put it in a 9-inch pie crust if you want!
- Finally, if you want to make this just for yourself or you’re not sure if you’ll like it, try the same ingredients n an egg white omelet. I typically use 3 or 4 egg whites, 1/4 cup quinoa, whatever leftover veggies I have in the fridge. In just a few minutes you can have a high protein breakfast!
