Quick Vegetable Quiche

The key word in this Quiche is Quick. Quick Quiche. Actually, not really so quick but quicker than normal. You see, a 'real' quiche would have a pastry crust and to bake a pastry crust would take some time. This version omits the crust but it just as delicious. This is one of The Lovely Wife's creations and as I said, one of the best things about this is how versatile it is. You can add some bacon or chicken pieces to make it more hearty or just stick to the basic vegetarian version.

The Lovely Wife likes to make this a little spicy as well by throwing in some chilli powder or sometimes curry powder. This is what she usually does:

1 large carrot
2 zucchini
1 large onion
1/2 cup grated cheese
1 cup Self Raising Flour
1/4 cup oil
4 eggs - lightly beaten
1 tsp Chilli Powder or Curry Powder or both if you want if more spicy!!

Grate the carrot and zuchini thinly and chop the onion. Combine with all the other ingredients in a large bowl and mix well to ensure everything is nicely incorporated. Pour into a pyrex bowl or similar container and bake in a preheated 180C oven for about 30 mins.

See? I told you it was really easy! The kids really love this dish but I think one of the best parts is how easy it is to whip up but how tasty it turns out.

Sometimes, she also adds some chopped spinach to the quiche for more substance. I think maybe I should try adding some mushrooms to it too!

My own mom would call this a frittata, but whatever you want to call it is delicious Dhatrm:D

You totally need to add mushrooms to this! I'd saute them 1st to rid them of their juices so the resulting quiche won't be soggy.
