Crustless Broccoli Quiche

Serves 4, Time to Prepare: 50 minutes

The addition of brown rice flour helps firm this quiche, however, wheat or spelt flour can be substituted. While excellent with Romano cheese, feel free to substitute any favorite grated cheese.

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
½ large onion, diced
2 cups broccoli florets, cut into 1-inch pieces
4 large eggs
1 cup low fat milk
1/3 cup freshly grated Pecorino Romano cheese
½ teaspoon sea salt or to taste
Freshly ground black pepper
½ teaspoon dried oregano
¼ cup brown rice flour
Dash of paprika

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9-inch square baking dish with nonstick olive oil cooking spray and set aside. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about three minutes. Add broccoli and cook about five minutes or until just tender. Transfer vegetables to prepared pan. In a large bowl, beat together eggs, milk, Romano cheese, salt, pepper and oregano. Whisk in rice flour. Pour egg mixture evenly over vegetables. Sprinkle with paprika and bake until set, about 35 minutes. Cool quiche 10 minutes before serving.
