Crustless Swiss Chard Quiche

October 24th, 2012


Whenever I have extra veggies in the house and not a lot of time, I love to throw together a quiche for dinner. This crustless quiche is so simple to make, is low in carbs and packed with flavor. It’s also a easy way to get the entire family to eat their veggies!

Crustless Swiss Chard Quiche

  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound Swiss chard (2-3 large bunches), ribs removed and leaves chopped
  • 1/2 medium onion, minced
  • 1/2 cup grated low-fat Swiss cheese (2 ounces)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch ground mustard powder
  • Kosher salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 5-7 minutes. Add chard to skillet, season with salt and pepper, and cook until wilted, about 5 minutes. Transfer chard mixture to a 9-inch pie plate and top with cheese; place on rimmed baking sheet. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, nutmeg, mustard powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Pour custard over chard mixture. Bake until custard is set, 40 to 45 minutes. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.
