Different quiche adaptations

Low calorie vegetable quiche

Want to make a lower-calorie breakfast? Skip the crust and make it a frittata, and use low or non-fat dairy sources.

Vegan vegetable quiche

You can make this quiche completely vegan by using non-dairy cream, sour cream, and cheese, and subbing the eggs for your favorite plant-based egg. You will want to use 1/4-1/2 cup of an egg substitute, and swap out your dairy at a 1:1 ratio.

Seasonal vegetable quiche

This quiche combines my favorite fall (butternut) AND summer (zucchini) flavors. You can make this quiche completely your own by swapping out these vegetables for things that you grow in your garden, or whatever is available seasonally at your local farmers market.

In spring I love to make this with early greens, and in the summer tomato and green beans are a favorite combo.
