Low-Point Broccoli Quiche

Ingredients:

- 2 cups chopped fresh broccoli
- 1, 9-inch unbaked pie crust

- salt and pepper, and other seasonings to taste (my favorite seasonings are Goya Adobo and Cavenders Greek Seasoning)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 9-inch pie plate with crust. Melt butter in a skillet. Add onions, garlic, and broccoli. Cook slowly, stirring occasionally until the broccoli is soft. Spoon broccoli into pie plate and sprinkle with the cheese. Combine eggs and milk. Season with salt and pepper and other seasonings if desired. Pour egg mixture over broccoli and cheese. Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes or until center has set. If you'd like a printer-friendly version of this recipe, Click Here. *Note: In this recipe, I used summer squash and broccoli.
