Roasted Red Pepper, Spinach & Tomato Individual Quiches

You know what I love about quiches? They’re perfectly acceptable to consume for breakfast, lunch or dinner. And so versatile! Quiche with toast? Yes please! Quiche with greens? Yes please! Quiche with soup? Yes please! Quiche with chocolate cake? YES PLEASE! Alright, we’ll forgo the last one since this is a Healthy, Delicious post. This is the perfect option when you just want to throw something together without bothering with a rigid recipe but still want to feel like you’re having a fancy meal. You can substitute any of the ingredients for pretty much anything you have laying around in the fridge.
