Green Bean and Garlic Quiche

This is another easy throw together dinner. All the ingredients are bought prepared, so you simply take them out, combine them and then throw your dish in the oven to cook while you lay the table, change out of your work clothes and get the family together, or in my case get myself together. No prep, minimal cleanup and a delicious result . . . what more could you ask for at the end of a long week?

  • frozen prepared pie crust

  • minced garlic

  • frozen cut green beans, thawed

  • 5 eggs

  • unsweetened soy milk

  • shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 375F. In a small bowl mix together the eggs, milk and cheddar cheese. (I use two full eggs and four egg whites for a lower cholesterol result, but feel free to substitute egg beaters or whatever combination of full eggs/egg whites you prefer). Spread a generous teaspoon of minced garlic on the frozen pie crust. Pour green beans into the pie crust, enough to cover the base or as much as you prefer. Pour egg mixture over green beans and bake for 35 minutes or until egg is set completely. Slice and serve.
