Crustless Swiss Chard and Zucchini (Courgette/Marrow) Quiche

Now this is the easiest Quiche ever !!! You could probably throw it all together with your eyes closed, I am not kidding !

Three key ingredients only and then whatever filling your heart desires. ๐Ÿ™‚

This time my filling consisted of Swiss chard, cheese (obvs) and zucchini’s.(seems weird me calling them this, as I have known them my whole life as ‘marrows’ but I know this has confused some people, so I am trying, to continue to call them zucchini’s here on my blog).ย Anyway…the beauty with this recipe is, literally anything goes. ย I generally like to bump it up and put enough filling together so it is quite thick and I can barely mix it up with a spoon, that way I know the filling with be thick and not soggy. There really is no hard and fast rules with this one when it comes to quantity, just go with your gut. Oh, and by the way, this quiche does not have to be gluten-free, just use a normal flour if you are not gluten intolerant.

Crustless Swiss Chard and Zucchini (Courgette/Marrow)ย Quiche

Preparation time: ย 10 minutes

Cooking time: ย 20 – 30 minutes

Total time: ย 30 – 40 minutes

Ingredients:

350 millilitres milk of your choice

2 – 3 ย heaped Tablespoons of gluten-free flour *ย (oh, and don’t be shy, heap that spoon up!)ย 

4 free-range extra-large/jumbo eggs

Filling:

1 large onion, diced

1 – 2 large garlic cloves, chopped finely

3 cups packed chopped and shredded Swiss chard

3 large zucchini (courgette/marrow)* (approx 150 gram each)

2 cups grated matured cheddar cheese

Salt and Pepper to taste

Instructions: ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย ย 

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius/350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a small pan on medium heat, saute the onion and garlic together. ย Set aside.

With you potato peeler, peel the zucchini/courgette length-ways, all around. ย I leave the middle watery area alone, as that could make the Quiche a bit mushy. Don’t throw these away, they can be chopped and used for another meal..just saying ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

Now this is the easy part. ย In a large bowl, bomb all the ingredients in together, (milk, flour, eggs, onion, garlic, Swiss chard, zucchini/courgette, cheese, salt and pepper) Mix well.

Then, all the mixed ingredients into a greased dish. ย (The dish I used is a 6.5 x 11 inch /16.5 x 28 centimeter oven proof dish.)

Place in the oven for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Once done, remove from the oven.

Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

  • ย I used Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour.

  1. 100 years ago when I was in college, I used to make this type of quiche weekly. It’s easy and truly delicious. I wasn’t nearly as involved in healthy living as I am now, but this certainly would have qualified as a quality meal. Yes, I have given away my age (18 years old in college + 100 years now = 118.) Although I joke, people today don’t seem to desire living a long life. They equate it with disease and disability and loss of function and quality living. Your food preps are simple examples of some of the best “medicine” that prevents these fears from becoming a reality. I encourage people to try your recipes and enjoy the benefits.

    • Jonathan you never cease to put a smile on my face…firstly I was thinking wow 118 years of age, you are doing good my friend, seems like all that healthy living and eating certainly does pay off…Jokes aside, I can see why this kind of food would be acceptable at that time of your life – one bowl, bomb, bomb, and bomb (and there is nothing wrong with that). Sure, your food choices may not have been then what they are today, but at least you have paved the way, and see the light…. This is so interesting and so true and I quote ” They equate it with disease and disability and loss of function and quality living”. I was chatting to a 56 year old today he mentioned that getting old means disease and our bodies shutting down….
      Thank you Jonathan, for your comment, and the compliment. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • At nearly 58 (3 weeks away) our discussions would be very different. People base life on their own experiences. Those living life that offers little (if any) support to their bodies and minds are more prone to believing that aging is equivalent with disease and “bodies shutting down.” Although it is true this is the end result of life, the QUALITY until this point is reached can be supreme. It is up to the individual to determine how much they VALUE their QUALITY of health and life and the effort they are willing to commit to maximizing these qualities.

  2. This quiche sounds fabulous, Lynne! I love how simple it is :). I’m going to start calling zucchini “marrow” because it sounds much fancier! Have a great week!

    • Hahahaha you make me laugh…hopefully you wont confuse your friends with the word ‘marrow’.
      Yes, and thank you, the simplicity of this quiche is awesome, and one I find I make so often, and often with just ingredients I have on hand. Enjoy the rest of your week too, and give Cookie a big hug. x
