Kitchen Therapy… Crustless Quiche with Bacon, Caramelized Onions, Spinach & Cheddar

Bacon Spinach and Cheddar Quiche' 3As I continue to focus my nervous energy in the kitchen, I find my favorite time to cook is in the the early morning – especially if I’m having trouble sleeping.

I’ve really been trying to challenge myself to work with whatever I have in my refrigerator and pantry, which has cut my trips to the store way down.  My goal is to only go to the store once a week during this important time of social-distancing.

This morning, I was in the mood for quiche – which is one of the most versatile menu options ever… great for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Plus, I look at what I have on hand and that is what I use, making it a great way to clear out my crisper drawer the day before I shop.

Today’s creation… a low-carb, gluten-free crustless quiche with bacon, caramelized onions, spinach and cheddar…

Be sure to cool your quiche for about 5-10 minutes as it will slice better.  Hope you enjoy!

Pantry to Plate… Easy Sautéed Mushrooms & Gravy

As promised, I am sharing some of my favorite pantry recipes over the next week or so…

I had some nice cremini mushrooms in the frig, which made me think of a recipe from one of my very favorite cookbooks, Oh She Glows, by Angela Liddon. Mine has a few modifications for those who are gluten intolerant, but the recipe is stil vegan when served over mashed potatoes or smashed cauliflower.  It also makes a healthy gravy option to serve with roast turkey or roast beef.

Sauteed Mushrooms and Gravy

This comes together in a snap with just a few basic ingredients from you pantry. It’s a great for my family as we have as many vegetarians as onmivores and this can be served with or without meat.
