  • 1 cup small broccoli florets
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated Cheddar cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Light coat a 9-inch pie dish with cooking spray.
  • Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the broccoli florets and cook for 1 minute. Drain in a colander and rinse with very cold water or immediately plunge into a bowl of ice water. Arrange the broccoli in the bottom of the pie dish.
  • In a large bowl, combine the eggs, egg whites, water, cottage cheese, thyme, salt and pepper. Whisk vigorously to break up the cottage cheese.
  • Pour the egg mixture over the broccoli in the pie dish. Top with the Cheddar cheese.
  • Bake until the egg is just set and a small, sharp knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 30 to 40 minutes.
  • Let the quiche rest for 5 minutes, then cut into 6 wedges. Serve.
