Quiches are rich in taste and often high in calories and fat... unless you're talking about these lite veggie quiches. Made with reduced fat ingredients, it's light on the lips and the hips.

3 (7-8 inch) flour tortillas

2 oz. reduced-fat Swiss cheese, shredded

1 cup broccoli florets

1/2 small sweet red pepper, cut into thin strips (1/2 cup)

2 medium green onions, sliced

1 cup Egg Beaters egg substitute, fat-free

3/4 cup fat-free evaporated milk

1/4 tsp. dried thyme, crushed

1/8 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. black pepper

4 slices sweet red peppers, thinly strips

Coat three 6- to 7-inch individual round baking dishes or pans* with nonstick cooking spray. Carefully press tortillas into dishes or pans. Sprinkle with cheese.
In a small covered saucepan cook the broccoli, the 1/2 cup sweet pepper strips, and the green onions in a small amount of boiling water about 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain well. Sprinkle cooked vegetables over cheese in baking dishes or pans.
In a medium-mixing bowl stir together egg product, evaporated milk, thyme, salt, and black pepper. Pour over vegetables in baking dishes or pans. Place on a baking sheet. Bake in a 375-degrees. Heat oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until puffed and a knife inserted near center of each comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with additional strips of sweet pepper.
Ready in 40 min
