Sweet Onion and Leek Quiche

I like quiche. My favorite recipe is one I got from someone who has a gluten allergy and the crust is made of sausage. It is NOT a low fat food.

This Rocco quiche doesn't have any sausage. It does have a lot of vegetables (2 leeks and 2 onions). I actually didn't make the one that you see on the left. My wife and I needed to go somewhere tonight and I wouldn't have time after work to do it. So, I cut up the veggies, gave her the instructions and rushed off to work.

It came out fantastic. She followed the directions and it was just about ready by the time I got home from work. All for around 200 calories and 10 grams of fat per slice. And by the way, yes, that is bacon sprinkled on top. Once you cut out a lot of fat from foods, you are able to add some back in.

This really was a veggie quiche. It had more vegetables then any quiche I've every had. This really made me realize how much egg, cheese, and other bad stuff usually make up our favorite dishes. In order to make things more healthy, you really have to cut back a lot. But, as this recipe shows, you don't have to cut back on flavor.

Rocco recommended Wholly Wholesum frozen whole wheat crust. I found it at Whole Foods. So, I didn't make the crust myself. It was a little too perfect for me to do. :)
