Hi everyone!

Now that I’m fully back in the swing of being home and real life, it’s nice to be enjoying simple summer meals again.  Caprese will always be one of my favorites in summer.  There is nothing like fresh tomatoes and creamy mozzarella.  I know I’m not the only one that feels that way.

Just the thought of it makes me so… happy.

Since I’m pretty sure a lot of you love that flavor combination too, I decided to create a crustless quiche using the best summer has to offer!  This is my Caprese Vegetarian Crustless Quiche recipe.

It’s loaded with vine-ripe summer tomatoes and loads of that fragrant sweet basil… which I’m kind of obsessed with.

This year I planted three pots because two never seems to be enough.  Seriously… I might have a problem :-).  But I digress…

My Caprese Vegetarian Crustless Quiche recipe just might be the perfect summer meal.

Plus eggs are a great source of protein on a vegetarian diet and I eat them often plain or in dishes like this.  They are inexpensive, easy to cook and good for you.

Since this is without a buttery crust, it’s a little less indulgent than regular quiche and makes a great weekday meal.  OR I’ve got to say it looks pretty enough for a special event too.  It’s all about the fresh basil folks.  It just elevates anything you put it on.

Serve my  Caprese Vegetarian Crustless Quiche recipe with a side of grains (quinoa, farro, ect) or with a big summer green salad.  It’s a simple and satisfying meal that anyone will love.

I hope you enjoy it.  As always, I’d love to hear what you think.

    So fresh and flavorful! Tomatoes and basil are in a summer staple! The basil is going crazy on our herb wall but out tomatoes haven’t taken off much yet.

    Creamy mozzarella cheese is some of the BEST with tomatoes and basil. 🙂

    When I was growing up I used to never eat quiche, but
    then I tried one in my early 30s and I have been a fan
    ever since. This looks like a tasty one.

    There are few things better than summer tomatoes and basil and balsamic. So let’s add eggs!
