Cheap Clean Eats: LOW FAT Healthy Quiche + 4 Ingredient SUPER EASY Crust

quiche: simple. scrumptious. sophisticated.

and this one has only 156 calories per serving! 

You’re welcome 🙂 

When I decided to blog about food, I wasn’t really sure about making any “healthy” recipes, despite the fact that that was all I made. I’d mess them up, they’d taste bland, and why risk ruining a perfectly nice recipe?

But once I googled quiches and their calorie and fat percentage, I freaked out. I love sharing fun recipes with y’all, but it’s not like I’d willingly hand over the recipe to a heart attack?!

Nevertheless, I wasn’t going to give up— quiches are too good to be forgotten — and after half an hour of searching through the deep, dark, webs of the internet, I discovered this FREAKISHLY AMAZING LOW FAT QUICHE RECIPE, WITH a CRUST!!!

What?!?!? Yes. I know!!

I didn’t have enough butter at home, so it got a little crumbly. But MY GOSH IT TASTED SO GOOD

I honestly LOVE this recipe so much. It is perfect to whip up right before a family gathering, and a nice family activity as well! When it came out, I had doubts if my family would enjoy it— but it was quickly obligated after my brother asked for seconds, then thirds— he usually doesn’t show much support to my creations 😂!

I mean LOOK AT THIS.

Um, ME PLEASE!?


A few quick notes before you begin
  • When I made these, the portion came out GINORMOUS. So I’ve halved the recipe for you 🙂
  • I also didn’t have enough butter that day, so the pictures came out crumbly, BUT nonetheless, DELICIOUS!

The recipe came as an egg+milk quiche with the crust, but trust me, it tastes much better with some broccoli, cheese, and salmon, or ham inside! 

[recipe title=”The Best FUDGIEST CHOCOLATEY Brownie Chunk Cookies” servings=”11″ time=”30 mins (prep+baking)” difficulty=”super easy!!”]

Ingredients:

CRUST
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour 
  • 1/4 cup melted butter (I used a half melted butter for a crispier crust because the original recipe asked for 1/2 cups and HELL NAH WHY WOULD I HAVE SO MUCH IN THE FRIDGE!?!?) 
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • tbsp almond milk
FILLING
  • 3/4 cup almond milk (preferably whole)
  • eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 dash pepper 
  • your choice of meat, cheese, vegetables, and herbs! 

Directions:

  1. In a pie pan (or anything oven safe), combine all crust ingredients and mix with a fork.

  2. Use your hands to finish the mixing and then form a ball in the pan. Press it into the pan and bring it up on the sides, and then pinch the top (with your finger or a fork).

  3. Mix all quiche filling ingredients and then pour right into the raw crust…..I mixed bits of ham and feta cheese into the mixture after pouring it into the crust – most sank below the surface, so I’m afraid you can’t see it in the photos!

  4. Bake at around 190~200 Celsius, or  375 Fahrenheit for 30 – 40 minutes or until filling is set, and the surface has turned a light golden brown.

Quiche is no longer just a regular brunch option with all of these options to consider: sautéed mushrooms, dried shallots or onions, broccoli, bacon, sausage, cheese, spinach, asparagus, sun dried tomatoes, salmon fresh herbs…the possibilities are boundless!

Well that was kind of it! Hopefully this recipe works for you 🙂

Have fun!
