I love this version because it’s loaded with healthy vegetables that are chock full of vitamins and minerals that are essential for your health. This is one of the best and easiest quiche recipes you'll ever come across.

This is a fun variation on the standard quiche because you leave the crust off. If you’re watching your fat or carb intake, this is the perfect quiche recipe to choose.

½ cup ricotta cheese
½ cup low-fat milk
¼ cup thinly sliced fresh basil leaves, plus one whole
4 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9-inch pie pan with deep walls with the nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of breadcrumbs in the pan. Cook the onion with 1/8 teaspoon salt in the oil over medium-low heat for about 15 minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes and cook for 1 more minute. Transfer the onion mixture to a bowl and set aside. Put the eggs, egg whites, remaining breadcrumbs, ricotta cheese, milk and ¾ teaspoon salt in a blender and puree until smooth. Add the sliced basil and onion mixture. Pour the eggs into the pie pan and top with the mozzarella. Layer the sliced tomatoes on top and bake the quiche for about 35 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes and garnish with the whole basil.
