Standard
Veggie quiche !!!!

After my 3 mile run yesterday (which I try to make a habit) I dashed to my local grocer and bout lots of yummy goodness to make a veggie quiche with. No mess, no fluff & it was super easy. Check it…

Jay’s Veggie Stuffed Quiche-

Ingredients


-1 handful of halved cherry tomatoes

-4 eggs

-2 generous handfuls of spinach and arugala mix

-1 handful of cleaned sliced mushrooms

-1/2 a diced onion

-3/4 cup of reduced fat milk

-1 handful of shredded mozzarella cheese

-1 pie shell ( I opted for a deep dish)

-PAM cooking spray

-1 sprig of organic basil

-Seasonings and spices (sea salt, cracked pepper, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, dried Italian seasoning & crushed red pepper)

Step 1: Crack 4 eggs in a large bowl, preheat your oven to 425 & place your frozen pie shell on a pizza pie pan or cookie sheet on your stove to allow it to thaw just a bit.


Step 2: Pour 3/4 milk in a measuring cup


Step 3: Wash your greens well & shred well with hands tearing into small pieces.


Step 4: Clean and half your tomatoes & mushrooms.


Step 5: Dice your 1/2 an onion




Step 6: Poke holes in your pie crust & spray it with cooking spray like Pam.


Step 7: Add all of your amazing ingredients together.


Step 8: Stir well with a wooden spoon and add your seasonings.


Step 9: Stir again well then give your bowl a thumbs up 👍🏾.


Step 10: Pour your quiche contents carefully into your pie pan and place in the preheated oven for exactly 50 minutes. Be sure to set a timer so you don’t burn it.



Step 11: 50 minutes later unload your brunch goodness !!!

Step 12: Serve and enjoy ! I opted to have mine with some brown sugar bacon…I’ll blog that later 😉

Bon Appetie and enjoy !!!!!!!💁🏽🍴

Quick fix Monday with quinoa! (Say that five times fast!!!) or Meatless Monday Side dish

Quick fix Monday with quinoa! (Say that five times fast!!!) or Meatless Monday Side dish

 

 

photo 4My mother is always suggesting I try new things. While I had heard of quinoa before I had always been skeptical about trying it. When I saw or heard or even thought of it I thought of little seedy,hard yucky grains…like sand and I was not open to trying it…let alone serving it to others 🙂

I promised mom I would try it one day, so I took a minute bag from her house and decided to prepare it and serve it when company came. I checked out the ingredients…quinoa and brown rice…I figured it can’t be that bad, but I did want to ‘doctor it up’ just a tad.

Here’s what I came up with.

photo 1

1 package of ‘Seeds of Change’ quinoa and brown rice

1 sliced clove of garlic

1 handful of sliced mushrooms

A dash of course black pepper

1 sprig of shallots/spring onions

1 small handful of craisins

2 tablespoons of light olive oil

1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar

A dash of sea salt

Instructions:

1.Microwave your bag of quinoa & rice for :90 or boil a pot of water and once water comes to a rolling boil add contents of bag.

2. Add olive oil to a small frying pan and once oil is hot add garlic first (you want your oil to have a garlic flavor and to light brown your garlic), then mushrooms, craisins, sliced shallots and allow to cook for :5-;10 minutes occasionally stirring with a slotted spoon.

3. Once you’ve allowed your ingredients pictured above to cook well, add a dash of salt, pepper and balsamic dressing and allow to simmer for another:5

4.Once you’ve mixed the above ingredients well, put the contents of your quinoa bag into a bowl and add contents of frying pan, slowly folding your mushrooms into your quinoa.

Last but not least…serve and enjoy !

And that’s your quick fox Monday with quinoa ! As always this can be cooked as a meal or a side dish. Either way its more than enough and very filling.

I try to always leave you guys with the health benefits of my ingredients, so please see below:
