There are many days when you come home from work and you are too tired to stay for hours in the kitchen. You wished you have prepared something from the day before. I put an easy recipe together that is perfect for such a day.
The good thing about this quiche is that crustless. You don’t need to prepare and roll pastry and worry if it would be crispy enough. Just prepare the batter, put it in the oven and let it does its job until you relax on the couch with a cup of tea. You can even make it the day before and eat it cold. Just don’t put the quiche in the fridge, but leave it on room temperature.
If you prefer any other vegetable or cheese, please add it to the batter. You can make endless combinations using your favorite products. So no obligation here to follow the recipe entirely. Depending on what you put in it, you can eat this easy cheesy crustless quiche for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It is also easy to take with you to work.

Put a big pan with water over a medium heat. Put salt and bring to the boil. Cut the broccoli in evenly big roses. Blanche the broccoli for 2-3 min. They should be a little bit undercooked and crispy.
