Recipe by Christmas
"This is a great quiche recipe - high in protein, which we need every day, especially as vegetarians. It is quick and relatively easy to make. All good cooks can adapt this recipe to their own requirements and availability of certain ingredients - but it tastes the best using the ones I have suggested here. If the ingredients are organic, they will be that much better."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

We really enjoyed this. The way the recipe is written makes it seem more complicated than it needs to be. Here is what I did to stream line this and eliminate the blender and a couple of bowls. Put the cauliflower on to steam. While the cauliflower was steaming, melt the 2 Tablespoons butter in a skillet add the finely chopped mushrooms (next time I would add some finely chopped onion too) Add the flour and cook for a few minutes, add the half & half (I use low fat milk instead) stir to create a thick sauce. Mine was about the consistency of Condensed Cream of Mushroom soup. Separate the eggs putting the yolks into a large bowl and the whites into the mixer bowl. Add the green onions, Parmesan cheese & seasoning to the yolks and stir well. Add the steamed and slightly cooled cauliflower and using a fork, mash and stir until well mixed and the cauliflower is slightly mashed. Add the mushroom / white sauce & stir well. Beat the egg whites and fold in. This fit nicely into a 9" deep dish pie pan. Grease the pie pan well or this will stick! It baked perfectly in 35 minutes. I omitted the curry powder and next time I would definitely add it. Thanks for a healthy low carb breakfast.
I followed it to the T, well except I had to leave it in for much longer than the suggested time since the middle wouldn't set. It was so bland, there was a lot of liquid at the bottom of the pan, and I can't even think of what to compare the texture to.
