Crustless Cauliflower Quiche with plates

Perfect for a chilly winter evening, quiche is a classic comfort food that everyone enjoys. However, it can be laden with calories from eggs, milk, cheese, and the crust, so we have created our own healthy version of this tasty dish. This light and nutritionally sound Crustless Cauliflower Quiche is a great alternative to the traditionally dense version everyone is used to. This quiche does away with a crust, but it still maintains flavor and structure due to the cauliflower base. We love using cauliflower in recipes due to its high fiber content, and richness in vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin B6, and folate. The beautiful white coloration adds an extra dimension to any and provides a great flavor twist on whatever you choose to cook with it. We also love using high-quality eggs for our quiche. We often refer to this chart by The Cornucopia Institute (http://www.cornucopia.org/organic-egg-scorecard/) to make sure we are getting the best eggs we can; not just for quiche, but for any eggs we buy! So the next time you are craving a comfort dish, go ahead and try out our tasty Crustless Cauliflower Quiche recipe! It’s one that your whole family will be drooling over for days to come!
