Broccoli and Parmesan Quiche will make your family rise and shine.


  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups small broccoli florets
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 frozen pie shell, thawed
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated, divided
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 medium tomato, cut into thin slices


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat; add oil.
  3. Add onions and cook until translucent, about 4 minutes, stirring frequently. Add garlic, basil and black pepper, cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly.
  4. Combine broccoli and water in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover bowl and microwave on high 2 1/2 minutes, or until crisp-tender. Drain well and transfer broccoli to pie shell. Sprinkle 1/2 cup Parmesan evenly over broccoli.
  5. Combine egg whites, whole egg and milk; whisk until well blended. Stir in onion mixture. Pour over broccoli. Arrange tomato slices in a single layer on top. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup cheese.
  6. Bake 40 minutes, or until the crust is golden and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
