Ingredients

  • 1 9 inch homemade or store-bought pie crust bring to room temperature
  • 5 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup low-fat milk
  • 1/4 cup non fat plain Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt plus 1/4 teaspoon divided
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups diced onions
  • 1 lb raw shrimp cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup finely chopped spinach or Swiss chard
  • 4 ounces lite mozzarella cheese shredded
  • Tomato slices for topping any type of tomato will work

Instructions

  • Coat a 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray and line with the prepared pie crust. Set aside
  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • In a medium bowl whisk the eggs, milk, Greek yogurt, pepper and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Set aside.
  • Heat oil in a medium skillet over high heat. Add onions and cook, stirring frequently, until the onions start to become transparent, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the shrimp, season with 1/4 tsp black pepper & 1/4 tsp salt and cook on medium heat, stirring frequently. Cook until shrimp is cooked through. About 5 minutes.
  • Spread the caramelized onions & shrimp mixture on the bottom of the crust. Layer spinach, the cheese and pour the egg mixture on top. Add the final layer with tomatoes.
  • Bake the quiche until puffed and firm when touched in the center, 45 to 50 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes. To serve, cut into 6 pieces.

Notes

(Nutrition information provided is an estimate and will vary based on cooking methods and brands of ingredients used.)
  • Place the pan with the quiche on a baking tray prior to baking so that it's easier to place in oven and when taking it out. 
  • I used to Greek yogurt to increase the protein but sour cream works as well.
