Ingredients

Crust:

Filling:

  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 large bell pepper, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tbsp coconut or avocado oil
  • 6 eggs, large
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp basil, dried
  • 1/4 tsp himalayan pink salt
  • 1/2 cup (2 oz) any hard cheese, shredded (I used cheddar)
  • 4 oz feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2 cups vegetables, sliced**
  • Cooking spray (I use Misto)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut squash in half, scoop out the seeds and place face side down on a baking sheet lined with unbleached parchment paper. Poke skin randomly with a fork and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool until safe to handle.
  2. Using a fork, separate spaghetti squash into strands and add to a medium bowl. Sprinkle with 1/4 tsp salt and mix. Using your hands, squeeze out liquid a bit. Return to the bowl along with 1/2 tsp basil and 1/2 tsp garlic powder; mix to combine. Spray deep pie dish with cooking spray and transfer squash into it. Press evenly on the bottom and sides using your hands. Set aside.
  3. Preheat ceramic non-stick skillet on medium heat and swirl oil to coat. Add onion and bell pepper; sauté for 5 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally.
  4. In the meanwhile, add eggs, balsamic vinegar, 1 tsp basil and 1/4 tsp salt into previously used bowl and whisk. Add hard cheese, feta cheese, previously sautéed and fresh vegetables; stir well to mix. Pour into prepared crust and flatten with spatula
  5. Bake in 400 degrees F oven for 50 mins or until the knife inserted comes out clean. Let quiche cool down for at least 30 minutes. Cut into 8 slices and serve hot or cold.

Store: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 – 4 days. Do not freeze.

Notes

*I used 2 smaller squashes. Pick light colour skin ones as they are easier to open. Use bread knife to cut. Sometimes mallet helps.:) **Zucchini, broccoli, tomatoes.
