Specialty Recipe

Healthy Ham Quiche

1 cup low-fat silken tofu
1 cup low-fat vanilla soy milk
1 cup liquid egg product
3/4 cup nonfat ricotta cheese
One 4-ounce can of mushrooms
One 10-ounce bag no-fat shredded mozzarella cheese
1 medium red bell pepper
1 medium yellow or green pepper
2 very mild jalapeno peppers (2/3 of a small can of Ortega roasted mild chilis)
1 to 1-1/2 cup cubed or ground ham (may substitute 3/4 cup crumbled bacon or sausage)
1/2 to 1 teaspoon hot curry
1 Tablespoon chopped onions
1 teaspoon granulated steak seasoning
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon cilantro
2 baked, cooled pie crusts

Blend the first 4 ingredients and the spices in blender. Chop peppers and ham in a food processor until the size of small peas. Drain in colander a few minutes. In the pie crusts, distribute the shredded cheese, mushrooms, ham, and peppers. Pour liquid from blender over it.

Bake about 45 minutes at 350 degrees until knife inserted into pie comes out clean. Let set at least 15 minutes, then cut in wedges and serve. May be reheated in microwave for late-comers. Makes 2 pies.

Hints: If you use frozen pre-made pie crusts, be sure to thaw first and poke holes around it before baking to prevent air bubbles; otherwise, it may come out soggy.

Substitutions: For those with a wheat allergy, try our corn meal substitute: 3-1/4 cups cold water, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon chili powder, and 1-3/4 cup corn meal (yellow or white). Cook over medium heat until quite thick and stiff, about 8 minutes. Press thick corn meal mixture in pie pan as a substitute for the pie crust.

Serves: 6 to 12. Preparation Time: 15 minutes. Cooking Time: 45 minutes.

Used in Pearson's Pond Healthy Start Program; especially good for those with low tolerance for lactose and fat. This recipe also won an award from CCBA. It is very quick to fix and holds over well. Delicious served at any meal with fruit of your choice (and salad for lunch or dinner). Can easily be used as appetizer when cut in cubes or formed in bite-size muffin pans.
