Seafood Quiche Low Carb
The cheese in the recipe acts as a crust! Low fat cheeses don't melt as well but you may try substituting 1 cup of cheese with a lower fat cheese. Other vegetables may be substituted for the spinach...try asparagus!
- 1 TB olive oil
- 2 cups fresh baby spinach leaves, chopped
- 1/2 sweet onion, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 2 cups shredded cheese (swiss, colby jack, etc)
- 1 lb imitation crab, shredded
- 2 cups Egg Beaters or other egg white brand
- 2/3 c 1% milk
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Non stick cooking spray
- salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350.
Heat olive oil in a large pan. Add spinach, onions, and garlic and cook until spinach is wilted and onions are clear; stirring about 2 min. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.
Spray a large (10-in. x 2 in.) round quiche or pie dish with cooking spray. Sprinkle 1 1/2 cups of cheese evenly to cover the bottom of the dish. Spread spinach mixture evenly on top of cheese. Add imitation crab evenly on top of spinach mixture.
Beat Egg Beaters, milk, nutmeg and salt with a wisk about 1 min. Pour egg mixture on top of quiche.
Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Bake for 40 min. or until egg is set. Serve warm.
