Healthy No Crust Egg White Quiche with Vegetables

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.

No crust egg white quiche with veggies

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!

    I’m love this recipe! One question though, when you say ‘reserve the yoke for baking later’ Did you mean it for this recipe or save them in general for another dish?

      Hi Jess. Just for another recipe. I hate to waste any food, so I always save, egg yolks or whites for later.

    This is delicious. I used 4 whole eggs, since I eat the yolks for the choline and vitamin D. When it comes out of the oven, it looks like it has a crust. It looks great too. It’s a very versatile recipe, so have fun trying different ingredients. I also tried broccoli and cheddar with tomato slices on top. Awesome.
