crustless quiche

So I made an extremely delicious quiche. It it crustless since I am paleo, a way of eating that basically eliminates refined carbs (bread, crackers, pasta etc.) You would think it would suck to not eat those things but I don't miss it that much and I feel goood. [Side note: I am not doing this to lose weight, but to help my progress with athletic training]

This quiche is honestly sooo good. So here you go :)

8 large eggs                               
6 oz asparagus, cut into 1 inch lengths
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp salt
3 slices rye bread, cubed
4 oz Gruyere cheese, grated
1 tbs olive oil
1 cup napa cabbage, shredded
1 leek, chopped


(1) preheat the oven to 375˚ F — 
(2) whisk the eggs in a bowl with milk until smooth
 (3) cut three slices of bread into 1/2 inch cubes — add to egg mixture

(4) chop leek and asparagus, add to a pan with olive oil and salt
 (5) saute leeks until softened — add leeks and saute for one minute

(6) add egg mixture to the pan and reduce heat

  (7) shred/chop cabbage and add to the pan

 (8) grate more cheese on top if you want — put pan into the oven and cook for 25 minutes

(9) let set for 5 minutes, eat and enjoy! :)
