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, grains and carbs from the crust. Even gluten-free crusts are often high in carbs and not very healthy.

This particular crustless quiche contains broccoli, but chopped cauliflower will probably work too.
