A flavorful and easy to make quiche that has instructions for vegetarians and vegans as well as those who eat eggs, meat and cheese. I take these to potlucks and they always are well received.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 ready-made pie crust (I like to use Krusteaz Pie Crust Mix for a quick and tasty crust)
  • 3 beaten eggs (, or egg replacer)
  • 1 12 cups nonfat milk (or soy milk)
  • 14 cup chopped green onion
  • 14 teaspoon salt
  • 18 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 dash ground nutmeg
  • 34 cup zucchini or 34 cup mushrooms or 34 cup spinach
  • 1 12 cups your favorite, shredded cheese (, we like swiss or you can use vegan cheese substitute)
  • 1 tablespoon flour


  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Line pricked pastry shell with foil and bake 5 minutes.
  3. Remove foil and bake 5 additional minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and reduce temperature to 325 degrees.
  5. In a bowl, stir together eggs, milk, onion, salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
  6. Add vegetables or meat and stir.
  7. Toss shredded cheese with flour and add to egg mixture, stirring well.
  8. Pour into pastry shell and bake for 35 to 40 minutes.
  9. You might want to add foil around the edges to prevent over browning.

this recipe came out awesome! i used soy cheese and soy milk too & sometimes these quiches don't come out well when using soy-based product. the tip about lining the pie crust shell was so smart -- and worked very well! thanks! i'll surely be making this one a lot!

Great, simple recipe! I altered it a bit I made mine with chicken, mushroom, onion, spinach, and sundried tomatoes. Since using this recipe, I realized I can add more filling and just use 1 cup milk, 1 cup cheese, and 2 eggs (lower calorie and more filling = yummy). This recipe taught me that a quiche is simply 1 egg to every 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 cup cheese then add spices and filling.

This is yummy! I made it with fresh zucchini and mushrooms and garnished with green onion. I made two...I served the first one straight from the oven and it was "mushy". The second one sat for 15-20 minutes before serving and it had "solidified" and had a much better texture. Thanks for a yummy and easy quiche.
