Feta Leek Quiche

Photobucket
My mother brought this recipe back from Greece with her and we tried it for the first time during her last visit. The feta and leeks were a delicious combination and it was much lighter in consistency than a traditional quiche, which I really enjoyed. This was very easy to make and you don’t even need to bother with a crust, which reduces both the hassle and the calories. Bonus, right?
Here what you need:
3-4 leeks (discard hard outer leaves and slice thinly)
1/2 lb. feta cheese, crumbled
2 Tbs. olive oil
1/2 cup flour
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Heat your olive oil over a large saucepan and add in your sliced leeks. Season with salt and pepper. Saute them until they’re transparent, about 8-10 minutes or so.
While the leeks are cooking, beat your eggs with your milk. Once combined, add in the flour, 1/2 tsp. of salt and another Tbs. of olive oil.
Once your leeks are done cooking and your egg/milk mixture is thoroughly combined, oil a pie plate so that your quiche doesn’t stick. First, add your leeks into the pie plate. Then, spread the crumbled feta on top. Finally, pour your egg/milk mixture over the top.
Bake in your preheated oven for about 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center of the quiche comes out clean. Cut and serve when it’s done. Enjoy!
