Yield: 4 servings
  • 2 medium zucchini, diced
  • 1 large red bell pepper, seeds removed and diced
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 3 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Butter, to grease the dish (use clarified butter if possible)
  • 8 large eggs
  • ½ cup (120 ml) plain, unsweetened almond milk (or any kind of milk you like)
  • 3 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted and cooled
  • 3 tablespoons thinly sliced basil leaves
  1. Preheat oven to 450F. Toss together the zucchini, red bell pepper, onion, garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper in a large bowl; spread in an even layer on a large baking sheet. Roast the vegetables until tender and starting to turn brown in spots, about 30 minutes, tossing once halfway through. Cool.
  2. Lower oven to 375F and grease a 2½ quart casserole dish with butter.
  3. Beat together the eggs and milk, then mix in the roasted vegetables, toasted pine nuts, and basil.
  4. Pour into the prepared dish and bake the quiche until it’s golden, the eggs are set, and a paring knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 50 to 55 minutes.
  5. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
