Parve Crustless Zucchini Quiche

Crustless zucchini quiche with coconut milk

Many of us are trying to cut carbs from our diets, and so a crustless quiche is a very attractive addition to our kitchen repertoire. For those of us who observe the Jewish dietary laws, this particular quiche is a boon for being parve, or a neutral dish that can be eaten with dairy or meat dishes. That is thanks to coconut milk, which makes a fabulous stand in for cow’s milk. We think this quiche is all the tastier for this substitution!
