Who doesn’t love Quiche?

I love it! But in my endless efforts to control weight gain and frequently shed off the extra pounds – hazards of the day job – I can only very seldomly have the full quiche. But, a crustless quiche is a very close experience, that is just as fun and delicious, and it takes away from having to make the crust on days when you are not big on spending more time in the kitchen.

A crustless Quiche is very similar to Frittata in concept, yet very quiche in flavour. The best of both worlds, I would say. There is no limit to the combination of flavours that you can come up with. This is a highly adaptable recipe to whatever favourite vegetables, cheeses, herbs, spices…etc that you like. Here, I have chosen the flavours of home. The beautiful Mediterranean. The natural abundance in produce over there, and the clever methods of preparation have produced flavours and aromas that are sure to please the palate. I love the contrast in texture that the addition of the dried tomato lends against the sponginess of the eggs and the Kalamata Olives just tart it all up for you. The Aroma of the fresh basil leaves, the black pepper & the herny spring onions paired with the visual appeal of a colourful dish… the makings of DELICIOUS!


Serves: 4
  • 8 large eggs
  • 4 spring onions, thinly sliced, green and white parts
  • 1/4 cup water
  • a handful of fresh basil leaves thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp DS Kalamata Olives, Pitted
  • 4 oven dried Tomatoes, halved (recipe on this link)
  • 4 DS Nabulsi Cheese, boiled and cubed
  • 1 tbsp DS Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Preheat your oven to 375F-190C.

Place a roasting pan 1/2 filled with water at the bottom rack of your oven.

In a large bowl, whisk, eggs, water, spring onions, dried tomatoes, olives and sliced basil leaves. Season with salt & black pepper to taste. Mix in the cheese cubes.

Brush oil over your baking dish then pour the egg mixture into baking dish and bake in oven until the centres are set and the quiche is golden brown.

Serve hot | warm.

You can make this in mini muffin tins or small coffee cups for individual portions when entertaining. They look really cool.
