Mini Veggie Quiches


Here on the Ranch we are trying to eat a little healthier and watch all those fat calories but we refuse to give up flavor and some of our favorite meals.

Quiche is one of those lovely versatile dishes that can be eaten cold or hot, for breakfast, lunch or dinner and it can contain so many different ingredients and flavors. 
We do love quiche, all quiches, sometimes we just throw a few leftovers together and make a quiche.  But some quiches just contain too many calories for us right now so we had to create a lower calorie, lower fat quiche.

These mini quiches are pre-portioned, loaded with veggies and are a great meatless meal.  So whether we just grab one (or two) on the go or set up a special meal, these little quiches will satisfy us without guilt!
Two of these mini quiches are less than 250 calories.
