Vegetarian Thanksgiving Idea: Crust-less Zucchini Quiche

By Laurel Sterling, MA, RD, CDN


My sister and mother usually make a crust-less quiche for me for Thanksgiving because I don’t eat turkey. I love several varieties of quiche. I don’t think there is any vegetable quiche I don’t like! You can use spinach instead of zucchini. Some recipes add garlic along with other seasonings like oregano or nutmeg. It is so simple to make and so delicious as a holiday dish!


3 cups zucchini, grated

1/2 cup gluten-free bread crumbs (Rudi’s)

3/4 cup mozzarella cheese, part skim, grated

2 eggs

4 egg whites

1 tsp minced onions

Salt and pepper


Mix all but the cheese. Put into greased pie pan and bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees F. Top with cheese and bake 30 minutes more.

Makes 6 servings
