Crustless Smoked Salmon Quiche

I make variations on this recipe, depending on what’s in the refrigerator—different types of Swiss cheeses, sometimes some thinly-sliced Maui onion, sometimes sliced leeks, sometimes, sometimes an entire fistful of chives.

But lately, I’ve been wanting savory flavors, so I’ve been creating these, which always incorporate greens, and come in a variety of flavor profiles from around the world. Here’s my collection—

Vegan Baked Apples

It was a dark and stormy night…so she made baked apples. I actually use my local bakery’s no-fat cinnamon-sunflower seed granola for the stuffing, adding some nut butter (sometimes) and maple syrup, but here’s an approximate breakdown of their ingredients.
