Tomato-Basil Quiche With Bacon and Spinach

Sunday, 06 April 2014 04:25  by Emily S.

Numerous studies have explored the significant link between excessive sugar intake and an increased risk of depression, anxiety and other mental illnesses. Even a small reduction in sugar consumption can generate better overall health. Achieving a healthier mind and body can be as easy as cutting out sugar one meal per day.

Here is a savory, satisfying and sugar-free recipe from the “21-Day Sugar Detox” with very few steps for a simple meal that can be prepared for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Ingredients:

  • 8 slices bacon
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or grated
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil leaves
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1-teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups chopped spinach
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons bacon fat (reserved from cooking bacon)
  • 12 cherry tomatoes, halved

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Slice the bacon crosswise into ¼ inch strips.
  3. In a skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon until the fat is rendered and the meat is cooked, approximately 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. Remove the bacon from the pan and drain on paper towels; reserve the fat.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, garlic, chives, basil, salt and pepper until well combined.
  6. Stir in the spinach.
  7. Grease a 9 by 11 inch baking dish with the reserved bacon fat, then pour the egg mixture into the pan.
  8. Top with the bacon pieces and cherry tomato halves.
  9. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until the quiche puffs up and becomes golden brown on the edges.
