If you routinely discard the broccoli stems, you�re missing out on some potent nutritional benefits broccoli stems are rich in vitamin C, folate and fiber. Because the skin can be fairly tough, peel it off with a vegetable peeler or very sharp knife; take care to remove just a thin layer; then cut the tender stems into slices or chunks.


1 teaspoon olive oil; plus more for pie plate
1/2 small onion; finely chopped
4 large Eggs
1 cup milk; reduced-carb
1 cup sharp or extra-sharp cheddar cheese; grated/divided
1/2 cup water
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary; chopped
1 bunch broccoli; cut into florets, stems peeled and cut 1/3-inch thick

Original recipe makes 6 Servings



1. Heat oven to 375F. Brush a 9- or 10-inch pie plate with olive oil.

2. Heat oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl; let cool.

3. Add eggs to onion and lightly beat. Whisk in dairy beverage, 1/2 cup of the cheese, water, thyme, oregano, salt, pepper and rosemary to blend.

4. Cover bottom of pie plate with broccoli. Pour cream mixture into pie plate. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2-cup cheese. Bake until a knife inserted in middle comes out clean and quiche is golden brown, 50 to 60 minutes.

I added just a bit of pre-cooked crumbled bacon to the top!

FABULOUS crustless quiche recipe! I cur the milk by half and added bacon crumbles (pre-cooked) to the top. LOVED this, turned out beautifully, and the rosemary and thyme give it a hearty country flavor!
