This is such an adaptable dish which is not just for slimmers alone. This is the basic mix, but you can add any combinations of veg and or meat. On an original day you can have bacon, ham, fish or chicken along with most veg (no peas corn or potatoes), on a green day you can have whatever veg you fancy. I would soften them first in a heavy pan sprayed with low fat cooking spray. I like to top it with sliced tomato to give it the authentic quiche look, but you can also sprinkle a small amount of cheese on the top if you wish. Fresh herbs would also be a nice addition, just play around with the things you like and find a combination that suits you. This recipe easily doubles and is syn free (depending on the meat/veg combinations)
- Pre-heat oven to gas 5.
- In a small oven proof dish, I use a rectangular pyrex one which is 20cm x 15 cm, place the eggs and seasoning, beat well and mix in the cottage cheese.
- Add any of the suggested fillings in description if using.
- Top with slices of tomato, or cheese if you are using that.
- Cook in oven for 40 minutes till set. Leave to cool for a few minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature. Delicious with a nice crisp salad.
