Spinach and Mushroom Crustless Quiche

Yes, real men do eat quiche and they actually enjoy it too!

Quiche can be loaded with carbs and fat but with a few simple changes you can enjoy it low carb and virtually guilt free. Due to the fact that I am the resident herbivore I get very excited to see my family enjoy a veggie delight like this dish. If they cry loud enough, ok I may put some smoked ham in and have a veggie to myself but I proved that yes indeed we can live on veggies alone. I know it was probably the cheese that diverted a dinner disaster, but what ever works right? Well come to think about it, I did have to make two anyway as my son is not a mushroom fan AT ALL. This actually worked out to my advantage as there was enough to have seconds and bring some for lunch today. Not only is this deliciously filling but it is a very economical meal at about $1.50 per slice.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
