I have a new recipe for you guys. It's nothing new, just a quiche :-P I've made it twice now - one last night and one tonight. Last night I just had vegetables in it - spinach, onion, broccoli, red pepper and tomato. Tonight it was mushroom and chicken and it was soooo good!
7 whole eggs
250g low fat cottage cheese
1/2 onion chopped
enough puff pastry to line your pan (I used 1 sheet of the ready made stuff)
sea salt & cracked pepper to taste
whatever vegetables you want to use
if you want chicken - I used about 250g raw weight and boiled & shredded the chicken
your choice of herbs if wanted
Whisk eggs together and then add cottage cheese, salt and pepper and blend together with a stick blender. Stir in onion, your choice of vegetables and chicken if desired. Line your baking dish with puff pastry (I used a 9" pie dish) and pour egg mixture into dish. Bake at 220 degrees celsius for about 50 minutes then lower the heat to 150 degrees celsius for 10 minutes. Bear in mind my oven is a load of crap so your cooking times will vary. Basically, keep an eye on it! The quiche is excellent for lunches and even a quick breakfast!
If you want to make it even lower calorie, omit the pastry to make it crustless and reduce some of the the whole eggs used and replace with egg whites!
I also made Chilled Avocado Soup last night to have with the quiche and it was sooo good! I served it slightly lukewarm though because I didn't really feel like having stone cold soup. Definitely try it. That blog has some good recipes actually!
