Try to use all organic ingredients. The superfoods used in this recipe are amazing. Onions reduce heart-attack risk by a whopping 73%. Brown rice, broccoli and kale are nutrient powerhouses. Nutritional yeast adds B vitamins, especially B-12, plus a salty, buttery flavoring without salt. Even the two cheeses used are lower in fat and higher in protein and calcium than other cheese choices. Romano is the new "health food" of cheeses with its high CLA content. Fresh tomatoes and their lycopene top off this nutrient-dense, fiber rich dish that delivers exceptional nutritional bang for the bite.
To make your filling, steam broccoli and kale, then chop fine, toss in bowl with 2 cups raw onion. Set aside. Liquefy 1/2 cup cooked brown rice (great use for leftover brown rice) with 2 oz almond milk in blender (this replaces the cream normally used in quiche recipes). Add in 4 eggs, romano cheese, nutmeg, and for seasoning, 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast and pepper as desired. Blend. Pour blended mixture into bowl with veggies. Mix well. Pour into quiche crust. Bake 15 minutes then garnish top of quiche with sliced tomato and grated parmesan cheese. Bake 10 minutes more.
