Veggie Quiche

As you know we love breakfast for dinner. I had two frozen pie crusts and eggs that I needed to use, so quiche was the perfect solution. I made one with vegetables and the other with ham and cheese. I knew the kids would eat the ham and cheese one with no problem, but I wanted one with veggies. I used what was in the fridge, but you could use whatever your have laying around. They’re easy to reheat and could be frozen too.

8 or 9 inch premade pie crust
3 large eggs
1 cup skim milk
1 cup shredded cheese (I used Colby Jack cheese)
Assorted vegetables (mushrooms, spinach and cherry tomatoes)
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium bowl, mix together the milk and eggs. Season with salt and pepper. In the bottom of the pie crust, spread a layer of cheese and the vegetables (except tomatoes). I precooked the mushrooms and spinach before adding them to the quiche. Pour the egg-milk mixture slowly over the vegetables and then add the halved cherry tomatoes over the top. 
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the eggs have set.

Shrimp and Veggie Ramen

I love ramen noodles, I know they’re so bad for you…but I still enjoy them every once in awhile. Plus they’re my go-to meal when I’m feeling sick.

This soup was delicious. We all gobbled it up and I loved how quick and easy it was to make. It definitely took Ramen noodles to a whole new level. I’m thinking next time I’ll swap out the ramen for another thin noodle, like vermicelli to make it healthier.

2 tsp canola oil
1 small yellow onion, halved and thinly sliced
4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
2 Tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 cups baby spinach, chopped
1 package ramen noodles, broken in half and seasoning packet discarded
8 oz medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

In a medium pot, heat the canola oil over medium heat. Add the onions and cook stirring occasionally until they’re soft and translucent. Add the broth and 1 tablespoon soy sauce, increase the heat to high and bring to a boil.

Add the chopped spinach and cook for 1 minute. Add the ramen noodles and cook for another minute. Finally add the shrimp and cook until the shrimp are opaque and the ramen is cooked. Taste for seasoning and add another tablespoon of soy sauce.

Divide between 4 bowls and serve.
