So…this is why I haven’t been posting enough lately!! I bought a place in Rancho Mirage, California and we’ve been driving out to Palm Springs for the last 2 weekends trying to get the place set up for my parents! They’re going to live there this summer and travel back to Yuma, AZ for the winter. Anyway, Palm Springs for Mother’s Day was great! I made quiche and whole wheat crepes that turned out wonderful. We had a great day with Mom!! And can you believe this is the view from the kitchen window! How lucky am I??
MOTHER’S DAY QUICHE
1/2 small onion, chopped
12 eggs, or 2 1/2 cups egg whites or a mixture of both
1/2 cup skim milk
1 t salt
1/2 t ground pepper
1/4 t garlic powder
6 oz fat free mozzarella, cubed
2 plum tomatoes, thinly sliced
6-7 leaves fresh basil, thinly sliced
Saute the onion in a bit of cooking spray for about 8 minutes and set aside. Whisk together the eggs, milk and seasonings and pour into a glass 2-quart or pie dish, sprayed with cooking spray. Add onions, and mozzarella, spreading evening. Add the tomatoes on top and half the basil. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes. Sprinkle the rest of the basil over the quiche and serve hot or at room temperature.
