How to make crustless zucchini quiche
A crustless quiche is as easy as making a frittata. You beat eggs and cream, add the filling with a dash of seasoning and bake!
The main challenges with this low carb quiche is ensuring that the excess water is removed from the shredded zucchini. If you don't do this the quiche will not be as firm as it should.
How to make ahead, store and reheat
- To Make Ahead - Prepare the zucchini ahead and store in your fridge in a sealed container.
- To Store - keep any leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days, covered.
- Reheat - Zap in the microwave for a couple of minutes to reheat.
Instead of shredding the zucchini, thinly slice the zucchini.
If you have any leftover quiche mixture, pour it into muffin cups and bake for 20 minutes.
Try other herbs or even cheeses. Basil or oregano would be a great herb substitute. Feta cheese would work too.
