If you’re looking for a healthy recipe that’s ideal for the whole family (including the toddler), look no further than the quiche cup.
While your standard quiche is made in a larger sized dish, quiche cups are baked in a muffin tray. This means they’re perfect for both portion control and for little people’s appetites – and even more perfect if you are trying to lose weight or are following our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.
Ideal as a nutritious dinner option, served with a yummy green salad or a quick, tasty lunch, these quiche cups are also a fantastic way to use up whatever you have lying around in the fridge.
We’ve made our quiche cups vegetarian, with spinach, zucchini, sweet potato and mushroom. But you could easily add other ingredients like lean bacon or even leftover poached chicken.
We’ve also made sure to pack these full of veggies to ensure you’re getting your 5 a day in a yummy way. A variety of greens will work in this recipe, as will things like leek, red onion, pumpkin and even potato.
To keep the calorie count down, we’ve eliminated the pastry but if you wanted to make these for a special event or similar, ready rolled puff or shortcrust would work well.
