Whipping up a healthy crustless quiche is quick, easy, and fun! Start off by picking your veggies, chopping them, and sauteeing them lightly in olive oil. Whisk your eggs and milk together in a separate bowl. Feel free to add salt and pepper for some more flavor.
Freeze whatever you don’t plan to immediately eat so you have them for a busy time when you need something quick to eat over the next couple of months.
