Filling protein fajita quiche – 104 calories a slice!

Busy week nights require easy dinners that are made in literally a few minutes. Just like my mother, I’m a fan of a good ol’ one pot meal. They’re sandbox easy to put together, take a few seconds to conceptualize but yet they still manage to serve a lot of flavor. On the other hand, let’s face it; they might all of sudden turn into a challenge, especially if you’re an overachiever like myself, you have to vary them a bit because eating stews or pastas every night might get a little bit boring.

3 eggs

1/2 cup or 1,1 dl low fat cottage cheese (150 g)

3 egg whites (100 g)

3 garlic cloves

2 handfulls of spinach (100 g)

1 big chicken breast filet (200 g)

2 smaller red and yellow bell peppers (250 g)

1 medium sized onion (120 g)

30 g fat reduced cheese

A splash of white wine vinegar

  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1tsp salt
  • 1tsp paprika
  • 1tsp sweetener of choice
  • 1 crushed chicken bouillon cube
  • 1⁄4 tsp cumin

Start with dicing in the chicken in 2×2 inch or 4×4 cm cubes and giving it a really quick sear on a very hot skillet. The chicken should still be rawish when you take it off the heat. Slice and dice the other ingredients (excepts for the onion and garlic) in preferred shapes and sizes but try to keep everything about the same size as the chicken. Mix everything in a large bowl and transfer it to a slighty greased quiche pan. Cook in the oven for about 30 minutes or until the eggs set at 350 C or 180 F. Let it cool for five minutes before serving!

  1. Definitely making an appearance in my diet one day this week! I may even be so bold as to attempt it for my next Tasty Tuesday if you feel inclined to give me the relevant permissions.
    Love your cooking – although I am still to make some bread…. 😉
