A perfectly protein packed dish that can be served  any time of the day that you desire.  Serve for breakfast, brunch or even for  a light dinner with a mixed  greens side salad.  It is fast and easy to prepare and so delicious!

Serves 8 to 10

Ingredients:
8 ounces cooked ham, diced
6 eggs
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon Madras curry powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 package of commercially prepared refrigerated Southwestern shredded potatoes
1 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
1 cup chopped fresh spinach
1 small red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 small red onion, diced
Salt, to taste
Ground black pepper, to taste

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375° F.  Lightly grease a 9- inch pie pan and line  with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, lightly beat eggs. Add in ham, cream chili powder, curry powder and cumin. Stir in potatoes and 3/4 cup cheese. Stir in spinach, bell pepper and onion. Season with salt and pepper. Pour into prepared pan. Top with remaining cheese.

Cover with foil and bake in the  preheated oven for 25 minutes. Increase heat to
400°F, remove foil and bake for an additional 10- 15 minutes or until the middle of  the quiche is set.

Cook’s Notes:
You can easily use Swiss cheese to replace the Gruyere and use kale in place of the spinach. Any type of commercially prepared shredded potatoes can also take the place of the Southwestern  seasoned version. The combination of the mild spices from the Southwestern potatoes give and extra punch of flavor to the fresh spinach used in this dish.

Carrot Hotdogs

Every once in a while, I come across a recipe that redefines how I see food and how it can behotcarrotdogs transformed.

Such is the case with Carrot Hotdogs….Yes, Carrots as an alternative to the hot dogs we have seen in the supermarket made with  either with whole meats or a combination of beef, pork, turkey or chicken.

I know, you are a little skeptical, so was I, but I am willing to test my self with a culinary challenge. And believe it or not, the carrot hotdogs turned out rather well. And did I mention, they are gluten-free without the hot dog buns……..

So score the perfect game day meal with these vegan carrot dogs! It’s a great, healthy substitution for any game-watching party.

Serves 8

Ingredients:
8 large carrots
8 whole wheat hot dog buns
1/2 cup red wine
1/3 cup barbecue sauce
2 teaspoons Siracha sauce
½ Tablespoon ancho chili powder
½ Tablespoon smoked paprika
½ Tablespoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons oregano
Kosher salt, to taste
Ground black pepper, to taste

Directions:

Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Add carrots to the boiling water and cook until soft for about 15 minutes.

In a casserole dish, mix the marinade of red wine or soy sauce, BBQ sauce, chili powder, paprika, oregano, garlic powder. Once the carrots are done, put the carrots directly into the casserole dish with the marinade. Be careful, as the carrots will be fragile. Allow the carrots to soak these juices in, for about 5 to 10 minutes.

On the stove, heat up a pan, with a little oil or non-stick cooking spray or even vegetable broth or water to be completely vegan, to medium to high heat. Place the carrots on the pan and “flash grill” them for approximately 90-seconds to 2 minutes on each side until the texture that is desired is achieve to your liking.

Toast buns the if you like, prepare condiments, and enjoy!
