Crustless Roasted Red Pepper and Potato Quiche

Prep Time: 1 Hour Servings: 6 servings Difficulty: Medium

Ingredients:

  • 1 Red bell pepper, seeded and halved
  • 1 Yellow or orange bell pepper, seeded and halved
  • 1 Small red onion, thinly sliced into rings
  • 1 tsp Olive oil
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp Fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 3 Medium potatoes
  • 1 cup Low fat sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup Liquid egg substitute
  • 1⁄2 cup Evaporated 2% milk

Directions:

  1. Preheat broiler and lightly spray 1 medium and 1 small baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Place pepper cut side down in a medium pan. Combine onions, olive oil and garlic in a small pan. Place both pans under broiler. Broil onions for 5 minutes and peppers until they begin to blister and char.
  2. Reduce oven temperature to 375°F. Transfer onion mixture to a medium bowl and set aside.
  3. Microwave potatoes for 5 minutes on high.
  4. Let peppers sit until cool enough to handle. Using a paring knife, peel off and discard skins. Slice into strips. Add peppers to bowl with onions, along with basil. Mix well.
  5. Peel potatoes and slice into 1⁄4 inch thick rounds.
  6. To assemble quiche spray an 8 inch round pan with non-stick cooking spray. Layer half the potatoes over the bottom of the pan, top with half the pepper mixture followed by half the cheese. Repeat layering.
  7. In a medium bowl whisk together egg substitute, milk, thyme, salt, and pepper. Pour over vegetables and bake uncovered for 35-40 minutes until quiche is firm to touch and cheese is golden brown. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
