Posted by: Site Administrator  :  Category: Entrees

This is a big hit with the kids. High in protein, very filling.

Place the following in a shallow baking pan:

  • 2 cups lentils (12 oz, but you can use a full pound if you buy lentils in 1-lb bags, just add another 1/2 cup of water)
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 bay leaves (or more if you like)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon marjoram
  • 1/4 teaspoon sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme
  • 2 large onions
  • 2 cloves minced or crushed garlic
  • 1 can diced tomatoes, with liquid

Cover in foil and bake all this at 375F for half an hour.

Stir in:

  • 2 large carrots, sliced
  • 3-4 stalks celery, sliced

Re-cover and bake for another 40 minutes until veggies are tender.

Stir in:

  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped parsley

Sprinkle 1.5 cups shredded cheese over top and bake uncovered for 5 more minutes.

Beat the Egg Mix together:

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 can (13 oz) evaporated milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • dash of paprika or cayenne pepper


This is where you get creative, but the base is:

  • 1/4 c chopped onion
  • 1 cup shredded cheese

For a Quiche Lorraine, use swiss cheese and add 10 strips of cooked and crumbled bacon (or more if you like bacon)

You can also use broccoli, ham, sausage, peppers, you name it. It’s a quiche.

Put the filling in the bottom of the pie plate, starting with the onions and ending with the cheese and pour the egg mixture on top.

Cook in the microwave as follows:

  • 3 minutes
  • Stir with a fork
  • 3 minutes
  • Stir
  • 6 minutes
  • rest for 10-12 minutes
