While quiche is already one of the best options when you feel like something light for dinner, this healthier version will not only taste better than most other quiche flavours, but it’s also a way better option for your insides! And what’s more, it’s perfect for breakfast, lunch and even dinner.

Try this out with any number of sides, although the flavour is definitely good enough to enjoy on its own. And if you want to add in or take away certain ingredients, don’t be afraid of mixing it up as it’s super versatile and can be easily tweaked to suit your tastebuds. Enjoy!
