Sun-Kissed Quiche (crustless)

Chopped and seasoned veggies
Recipe Three with the Solar Hot Pot
Sun-kissed Quiche (crustless)
10 am—4 T. butter (I didn’t say it was low-fat! Smile): cut in pieces and put in pot, cover, set up facing the sun, set timer for 20 minutes (or watch until butter is melted/hot).
Then prep: slice and chop veggies, sprinkle seasonings on veggies.
4 mushrooms (slice thinly)
1/3 of a sweet pepper (chop)
a bit of onion or green onion to taste (chop finely)
1 small tomato (chop)
sprinkle salt (and pepper if desired)
sprinkle parsley (optional)
You can add others of your favorite quiche veggies and seasonings and even bits of pre-cooked sausage or other meat if you like.
10:20 am—veggies and seasonings: add, stir into butter, cover, set timer for 20 minutes.
10:40 am—Set eggs out to come to room temperature. While they are still in their shells, there is not much chance of contamination/bacteria growth. Set timer for 20 minutes.
Veggies after 40 minutes:
11:00 am—9 eggs, 1 T water, 1/2 t. salt (pepper if desired): whip lightly together and quickly pour over veggies, cover, adjust to sun, set timer for 30 minutes.
11:30 am—check to see if eggs are done by carefully picking up pot (with pot holders) and ‘swirling’ with lid still on. If eggs are still runny, try to swirl most of the runny-ness out to the edges. Set timer for another 30 minutes.
12:00 noon—check for doneness; if still runny, swirl out again and set timer for another 20 minutes. (Ours was done at 12.)
Optional: sprinkle with cheese. Serve with toast and fruit.
Easy peasy and fast (well, fast for solar cooking anyway! Smile ) Made a fantastic lunch. The eggs were tender, the ripe tomatoes juicy and tangy, the mushrooms & peppers perfectly cooked. Delicious!! The kids gobbled it up!
I am having so much fun seeing what this Hot Pot will do! And getting some sun myself—yay vitamin D and fresh air! I’m also getting the hang of getting a few things done/working on the computer in between recipe steps. We’re actually camping in a Winnebago right now, but if I were at home, there would be even more possibilities in between steps: throw in a load of laundry, do some house cleaning, etc., while the Hot Pot gently cooks our food.
Now this one sounds like something my wife would really like, and I would too.
Looks like it would work as an omelet as well.
Thanks for sharing.
