I spotted this recipe by Emily Leary, it's for an "easy, low-carb, delicious quiche with no pastry! It uses eggs, which are of course a great source of protein, vitamins and minerals, and when combined with plenty of vegetables they can make a healthy meal at any time of day! This recipe suggestion is a gorgeous twist on the traditional quiche, which swaps out the pastry for peppers and fills them with a classic mix of eggs, milk, cheese, made extra special with a pinch of sage. These little quiches are absolutely delicious, fluffy, low carb, satisfying and packed with flavour", I'm sure you will enjoy them.
2 large peppers (or 3 medium)
200ml (7 fl oz.) whole milk
60g (2.5 oz.) grated mature cheddar
pinch salt and pepper
1 tsp dried sage
handful cherry tomatoes
handful baby broccoli florets
2 tbsp. olive oil
1. Preheat the oven to 200C (180C fan). It's easiest to make the filling in a jug - it will make pouring the filling easier later. Start with your milk, then add your salt, pepper, and sage.
2. Break in your eggs and give the milk a good mix.
3. Pour the oil into a large roasting dish. Halve and de-seed your peppers (being careful not to pierce the skin) and then place on the tray.
4. Fill the cups generously with your fillings.
5. Top with the cheese, then carefully pour in the mix. If any of your peppers are unstable, you can place a little bit of screwed up foil underneath them to keep them level.
6. Bake in the centre of the oven to for 25 minutes until golden and delicious.
