Gluten Free Vegetable Quiche
Breakfast & Brunch / / 5 COMMENTS

Use leftover vegetables to create a beautiful gluten free quiche, using a non-traditional pie crust recipe for a buttery and flaky crust. 

It’s that time of the month again.. Recipe ReDux time!

This month, Recipe ReDux-ers were challenged to “cook once, eat twice”.

Two for One

We’re all about cooking once and eating twice. In short, double dinners are better. Show us how you take a favorite recipe already on your blog – and ReDux the leftovers into a new dish. Or, whip up a new healthy recipe and give suggestions on how to make it a second meal. For example, slow cooker pot roast could become shredded beef tacos; or grilled chicken breasts might morph into chicken salad.

I am a huge fan of leftovers and using them to create a new dish. This recipe theme came at the right time, because I had some leftover vegetables in my fridge.

Dinner at my house you will most likely see vegetables on my plate. I always like to make a big batch and use the leftovers as part as my lunch for the next day. In my fridge, I had some leftover steamed broccoli and sautéed peppers & onions from this past week’s dinners.

During the week, I tend to rely on my overnight oats or smoothies on-the-go, but on the weekend I take more time in the morning to prepare more of  a brunch-style breakfast.

Of course, you can create this quiche with your favorite vegetable and cheese combination.
