Meg is Lazy, So Here I Am.

Call me Reema Mk. 2, another of Meg's myriad friends that are aiming for internet stardom by posting on Teh Culinary Skillz. After months of work, I have passed Meg's rigorous examination in order to be accepted by a Food Blogging expert such as she. Like my predecessor, the lovely Ms. Reema, my food also looks like somebody vomited up a lung (you know I feel nothing but love toward you, Reema), but I assure you it tastes good.

Tonight's experiment was a result of dozens of minutes of negotiations between Meg and myself. The decision stemmed from the fact that my kitchen contains very few ingredients to put into anything, and so we came to a decision: let's make a quiche using every vegetable in the kitchen. Taking into account that I had no wheat for a crust or milk/cheese for it, a quick bit of googling yielded a wheat-less, dairy-less recipe called Sweet Broccoli Quiche, which was, in fact, nothing more than vegetables and egg poured into a pan and then baked.

The recipe:

A shitload of eggs
Three handfuls of frozen broccoli
A large amount of salt
A larger amount of pepper
One humongous potato
Perhaps one or more small onions
1 tsp. unsalted butter

Nevertheless, let's begin this simplistic experiment. On to the pictures!

From left to right: the container used to bake the quiche, onions, potatoes, eggs, and broccoli. As I said, I don't have much to work with here. I took out an extra potato and onion because I wanted to eat something while it cooked.

There's everything, pre-mixing. I rubbed butter all over the container and loaded the eggs with salt and pepper. The vegetables also received a brief two minutes in the microwave to soften up before being put into this unholy concoction.

I found some parmesan cheese at the last minute, which made it look even more like devil vomit.

After an hour of baking in a 350 degree oven, this is the finished product. I tested it by slicing at it with a knife, which is why it's sliced.

This is what it looks like on my plate. It resembles quiche in a way that makes me happy.

And there you have it: an easy, flavorful quiche that can be made with whatever the hell you have in the refrigerator. I'd recommend putting some more vegetables in it, or some bacon. I'd recommend covering the top with something so it doesn't look like shit. Don't believe me that it tastes good? Just look at this picture of my Dad, one of the satisfied eaters of my concoction.

This is my Dad eating it. We both enjoyed it. P.S. He doesn't look like a retard in real life.

That was delightfully offensive. Kudos. :P
