In our efforts to eat a more traditional diet, I have been searching for low-carbohydrate, nutritionally dense foods for lunch boxes.
This crust-less quiche fits the bill perfectly. Quick and easy to make, it freezes well too, so can be made in bulk as a stand by.
small tub cottage cheese, or cream cheese
3 eggs (2 if large)
small onion, finely diced
vegetables, optional (sweetcorn, broccoli and tomatoes work well)
Beat cheese and eggs together until well mixed.
Place vegetables and meat into a greased flan tin or other oven-proof dish, pour over the cheese and egg mixture and bake at 200 deg. C. for 40 minutes until centre is springy to the touch
