When I am feeling uninspired to cook, I tend to turn whatever leftovers I have into a crust-less quiche. The components of my quiches vary. I tend to use whatever protein and veggie combo I have at hand.
The one thing that does not change is the base of the quiche. We are a family of 3 so I tend to use 6 eggs and 1/2 cup of my newest obsession: Unsweetened Silk Cashewmilk <3
On this particular night I had some ground turkey leftover from taco night.
For the quiche filling I used:
2 celery stalks (diced)
1 small leek (chopped)
a handful of cilantro leaves
4 cups of baby spinach
1 orange pepper (diced)
8 oz. of cooked ground turkey (seasoned with taco seasoning)
For my wet ingredients:
1/2 cup of Silk Unsweetened Cashew Milk
the zest of 1 lime (game changer)
1 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp of black pepper
Preheat your oven at 375 degrees. In a bowl combine your eggs, milk, lime zest, salt and pepper and whisk until well combined. Set your wet mixture aside. Spray your baking dish with cooking spray (I used a 9 x 11 baking tray.) Place all of your filling ingredients in the baking dish and sprinkle a bit of salt and pepper to taste over top. Pour your milk and egg mixture into the tray. Bake for 35-40 minutes at 375 degrees.
Remove Quiche from oven. Allow it to cool for about 5 minutes before serving.
This particular recipe makes a pretty large size crust-less quiche. It is the perfect week night dinner for those busy, uninspired cooking days.
How about you...! What's your favorite way to use leftovers?
