  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place the onion and olive oil into a 9 inch deep-dish pie plate. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until onion is tender.
  2. Place the lentils and water into a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Cook for about 20 minutes, or until lentils are tender. Drain most of the water off, then place the broccoli florets on top of the lentils. Cover and cook for about 5 minutes. This will dry the lentils, and cook the broccoli.
  3. Transfer the lentils, broccoli and tomatoes to the pie plate with the onions, and stir to evenly distribute each item. Stir in cheese at this time if using. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Pour over the ingredients in the pie plate.
  4. Bake for 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the center is firm when the quiche is jiggled. Cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

As written, I'm not overly impressed with the taste/results of this recipe, but I can tell that with very little adjustment and change, it will be an excellent addition to my standard collection. Many other people said they neglected to add the tomatoes to the recipe and after trying mine, I wished I had not added them, as well. I had to sprinkle more salt over top of the result and I wish I'd included some minced garlic when cooking up the onions... just a few things I will be sure to do the next time I make this!


This quiche was delicious and easy and quick to make. I put it in two deep dish pie crusts and cooked/fried the onions in oil and seasoned with granulated garlic and salt before adding to quiche to speed things up a bit and give it a good flavor. I left out the tomato. I used 1 cup of cheese instead of 1/2 c and sprinkled parmesan cheese on top. The italian seasoning was good, but next time I will use just garlic, basil and oregano individually, as I don't care for italian seasoning very much. Basically, you can add and leave out so many things as long as you stick to the base items and it will turn out incredible. Great taste and texture, esp. if you don't like the egginess of regular quiche! 5 STARS!!! THANKS!!!


I love quiche, and had never tried Lentil's so I gave this a try. I used egg beaters liquid egg for the eggs, skim milk for the milk and low fat chedder cheese. The quiche came out nicely and I have added this recipe to my vegetarian recipe folder.
