Leftovers Crust-less Quiche with a hint of Lime

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)
6 eggs
1 tsp of salt 
1/2 tsp of black pepper

Directions:
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?

  1. I have heard so much about cashew milk this week. I gotta get some next time I am at the store! Also - I just heard that Coke is making their own milk - http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2015/02/03/coca-cola-coke-fairlife-milk-premium-milk-dairy-nutrition/22798261/
