Crustless Quiche

Crustless quiche makes a great alternative to traditional quiche, because you get all the flavor and nutrition of the filling without the extra calories (not to mention the grains and gluten) from the crust.

This particular crustless quiche uses broccoli, but I can imagine that chopped cauliflower will work too, and do feel free to experiment with any other veggie.
