Gluten Free Vegetable Cheese Quiche

February is Hot Breakfast Month

Vegetable Quiche

A quiche is a wonderful hot breakfast.  It can be made ahead of time and warmed up for a quick, nutritious hot breakfast.  My version is gluten free and is as full of vegetables as I can make it, thus it is also a hearty breakfast.

I start by greasing a large pie plate and then I cover the bottom of the plate with gluten free break crumbs (do not get them too thick).  I use El Peto Stuffing it is pre seasoned and adds a savory favours to the quiche.  This forms the crust.

Next I take a about cups of broccoli cut into bite size pieces and I steam in the microwave for about 2 minutes.

At the same time I cut up one sweet pepper you can use green, red or yellow.
Then I dice a cooking onion.
Ingredients in vegetable quiche
I grate 1 cup of sharp cheddar and 1 cup of aged hard parmesan cheese.
In a mixing bowl I crack 6 large eggs, and 1/4 cup almond milk and beat until well mixed.  (At this point you may wonder with all the other dairy used why almond milk?  I have yet to find dairy free cheese that I like and I love the taste of almond milk.  If you know of a good dairy free hard cheese product please share.)

I place the broccoli on the bread crumbs, followed by green peppers & onions, next the cheese and last of all the egg and almond milk.   Your pie plate will be next to over flowing and if it looks like it will overflow divide the ingredients into two pie plates.
Bake at 375 F for 60 minutes or until the egg mixture as set and comes out clean with a knife is inserted.  

Paul enjoys his with Salsa on top, also feel free to experiment with different vegetables.

I hope you enjoy this hot breakfast in February

Psalm 5

 A psalm of David.

 1 Listen to my words, Lord,
    consider my lament.
2 Hear my cry for help,
    my King and my God,
    for to you I pray.
 Sunrise over a farmgate winter
3 In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice;
    in the morning I lay my requests before you
    and wait expectantly.
4 For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness;
    with you, evil people are not welcome.
5 The arrogant cannot stand
    in your presence.
You hate all who do wrong;
Abandoned farm house winter
6     you destroy those who tell lies.
The bloodthirsty and deceitful
    you, Lord, detest.
7 But I, by your great love,
    can come into your house;
in reverence I bow down
    toward your holy temple.

Sunrise of tree tops

8 Lead me, Lord, in your righteousness
    because of my enemies—
    make your way straight before me.
9 Not a word from their mouth can be trusted;
    their heart is filled with malice.
Their throat is an open grave;
    with their tongues they tell lies.
Abandoned Farm House
10 Declare them guilty, O God!
    Let their intrigues be their downfall.
Banish them for their many sins,
    for they have rebelled against you.

Corn standing in snow
11 But let all who take refuge in you be glad;
    let them ever sing for joy.
Spread your protection over them,
    that those who love your name may rejoice in you.

12 Surely, Lord, you bless the righteous;
    you surround them with your favor as with a shield.
Sun shining through clouds
