Recipe of the Day - Broccoli Mushroom quiche

Ok, so my new endeavor on my goal of helping you all stay fit and healthy is that I am going to be sharing a recipe a day. :)

Clean Eating Broccoli Mushroom Quiché
(Makes 16 servings)

1 pie crust (I used this recipe)
1 (16 oz.) carton egg whites
2 cups cooked, chopped broccoli
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 lb. sliced crimini mushrooms
1 small red onion
1/2 tsp. garlic powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Step 1 – Prepare pie crust and set aside.
Step 2 – Place all other ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix well with a spoon.
Step 3 – Pour the mixture into the pie crust and place in the oven for approximately 45-60 minutes. Basically, you want to bake it until there is no liquid when you cut into the center.

Eat and Enjoy!

1 serving = 1/16 of the quiche
This recipe is not as low in fat as I’d like, but sometimes there is a delicate balance between fat content and taste. If you plan on making this, adjust the rest of your diet for the day accordingly.
