"This is a tasty, protein-filled vegetarian meal. The recipe is really quite quick. Get the onions in, put the lentils on, then prep the rest of the ingredients. Once you've got the quiche in the oven, you've got 45 minutes of spare time!"

chopped fresh tomatoes
ground black pepper to taste
shredded Cheddar cheese
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!
It was between a three and a four. I really wanted to love this as all of the ingredients are in my faves. I doubled it and put it in a casserole dish and it was very quick and easy so it does have that going for it.
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.
This is by far one of the best quiche recipes I've every had...I love that there is no pastry!! After reading the other reviews I also increased the spices....Using fresh herbs - parsley, coriander, basil - and dried oregano and sage....I also added a little nutmeg and think I will put even more nutmeg next time. I also only cooked the lentils for about 15 min. and stir-fried my onion to save time. This was just a fabulous dish!! Thanks so much for sharing!
I really liked this quiche. I omitted the onion and tomato, cut the salt in half, and added a dash of garlic powder. I used 2 cups of frozen cut broccoli, since thats what I had on hand. I also just mixed the lentils, cheese (shredded cheddar and monterrey jack blend), and broccoli together in the pot I cooked the lentils in and then poured it into the dish. I also added a sprinkling of cheese on top. I only cooked my lentils for 10 minutes and I used a 9x11" baking dish, baked it for just under 35 minutes. Came out beautifully, I think it would also be really good with cauliflower.
I love this recipe because I have all the things in my pantry or fridge. I did not put the broccoli on top of the lentils to steam and I only cooked the lentils for ten minutes. That really cut down on time. I think I like this recipe best of all because it taste great the next day. Be sure too add the cheese!
this may be the best quiche i've ever had. the vegetables filled 2 9-inch crusts (not deep dish), but i needed a little extra egg and milk. i just threw tons of spices in there, like oregano, basil, parsley, rosemary, thyme, and sage. the lentils filled out the taste well.
