I’m a quiche lady. I love the combination of eggs and veggies cooked in a pastry crust. But cooking a quiche the normal way means lots of calories and fat which I don’t want. This egg white quiche combines a my vegetables with just egg whites to give you a breakfast option that is lower in calories and much more healthy. And best of all, it has no crust, so you are saving even more.
Egg White Quiche is a healthy lower calorie option.
The recipe serves 8 at only 100 calories each! Most of the calories from the eggs, so using lots of egg whites gives you volume and flavor with far less calories. The fresh veggies make it so tasty and nutritious. What a great way to start your day!
