Broccoli and Cheese Crustless Quiche

Call it what you want – a frittata, a crustless quiche, but in the end it’s all the same thing – a fancy schmancy omelet with stuff in it. This particular recipe is especially good. Broccoli and Cheese are one of those combinations that are made for each other (although I used Romesco cauliflower in this one), and it’s a healthy start to any morning. If your New Year’s resolution is to eat healthier, this is a great recipe for meeting those goals. It’s low calorie, low carb, low fat, and packed with protein.
