Diabetic Friendly Zucchini Quiche For Brunch Or A Light Lunch

The next time you want a light lunch with friends or perhaps you are hosting a brunch, make this recipe for a tasty Alabama Zucchini Quiche. This is a good dish for diabetics as well as others since it only has 102 calories, 7 grams of carbs and 9 grams protein per wedge or serving. Serve this light refreshing quiche with a salad and you have a meal. Delicious, healthy, and easy; try it soon! Want dessert? Keep it light, too. A scoop of no-sugar-added ice cream with a spoonful of fresh berries would be a good choice.


1 tsp cornstarch

1/4 tsp oregano

1 cup canned stewed tomatoes

1 1/2 cups low-fat milk

4 eggs (or 1 cup egg substitute)

1 tbsp all-purpose flour

2 cups shredded zucchini

1/4 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese

1/2 cup shredded American cheese

2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

Nonstick cooking oil spray

In a small saucepan, combine the cornstarch and oregano. Add the tomatoes, stirring well, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat; simmer 2 minutes or until thickened. Keep warm.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the milk, eggs, and flour; beat well using a wire whisk. Stir in the zucchini, onion and all the cheeses. Stir well to be sure mixture is well blended.

Pour the egg mixture into a 9-inch round quiche dish or deep dish pie plate that has been coated with the nonstick cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Remove from oven, spoon the tomato mixture over the quiche. Cut into nine wedges and serve warm.
