Healthy Broccoli Quiche

Broccoli quiche is an excellent meal option because it can be eaten at any meal. Normally it is served for breakfast for a brunch item but it has some many nutrients and health benefits and if served the right way is a good choice for lunch and dinner too. My version of broccoli quiche may be a bit different then what you are used to or it may be exactly what you normally do, either way it is healthy, tasty and low in calories, fat and carbohydrates.
This recipe serves about 6

Broccoli Quiche
2 1/2 cups of raw broccoli
1/2 onion chopped
3 eggs
1 cup of skim milk
1/4 tsp. of garlic powder
1/2 tsp. of salt
dash of pepper
1 cup of low fat shredded mozzarella cheese
butter for greasing

Preheat oven to 350*
1. boil water and cook broccoli just until slightly tender
2. mix the egg, milk and spices together
3. add in the broccoli and onion and cheese (mix together)
4. grease a pan and then pour the broccoli-milk-egg mixture into the pan
5.  bake in oven for 30-40 minutes (check until it has all set)
6. let it cool for about 10 minutes and then serve!

This alternative is light in fat (only the egg and that's okay because eggs are healthy) and it has absolutely carbohydrate free- so enjoy and have a second slice!
