Asparagus and Mushroom Spaghetti Squash Quiche

This quiche is a little more work than a standard frittata, but if you’ve been hankering for something with a real crust to it, spaghetti squash is the perfect answer. It’s mild enough to stand in for pastry dough without adding any unexpected flavor, and so much healthier than a nut-flour crust. Recipe from Paleo...

Ingredients
  

  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • 13 oz asparagus trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 red onion sliced
  • 1 cup mushrooms sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tsp rosemary fresh, minced
  • salt
  • pepper

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Cut the squash in half, remove the seeds, and place, face down on, a baking sheet.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, then remove from the oven, and set aside to cool.
  • Remove the flesh of the squash using a fork and set aside in a bowl.
  • Melt some cooking fat in a skillet placed over a medium-high heat.
  • Sauté the onions and garlic until the onions are soft.
  • Add the asparagus and mushrooms; continue cooking until the asparagus is starting to get soft but still crunchy (watch for the moment it starts to change color).
  • In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, coconut milk, rosemary, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Make the “crust” of your quiche by lining a deep pie dish with the cooked spaghetti squash, pressing gently on the bottom and sides to make it even.
  • Pour the egg mixture over the squash and add the asparagus and mushrooms on top of the eggs.
  • Place in the oven and cook for 40 minutes.
