Meatless Monday with Vegan Gluten-Free Crustless Quinoa Quiche

Welcome (back) to the Miratel blog for another edition of our Meatless Monday  vegan recipe share. Miratel took the Meatless Monday pledge to support reducing meat consumption 15% by eliminating it one day per week to preserve the health of our planet. We consider our support of this great movement part of our CSR business strategies as it spreads awareness of the impact of our food choices on our environment.

Quiche is definitely not a vegan option in its traditional form – the eggs, meat, cheese, butter crust generally rule it out. As a vegan, you don’t really think about quiche much until today that is. Our recipe share today for a vegan and gluten-free crustless quinoa quiche make eating it a definite vegan option once again. This amazing dish is perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch or a light summer dinner when served alongside a fresh green salad. Plus with the addition of quinoa they pack a protein punch too! There is really no end to what you can pair this dish with because it so delicious and will go with anything. This incredibly tasty recipe comes courtesy of Jessica Meyers Altman  of Garden Fresh Foodie via One Green Planet, a website I highly recommend you check out for all things good for the planet.
