If you’re looking for a quick and easy recipe for a Monday night supper, quiches are where it’s at. Be they crustless frittatas, vegan, eggless tarts or a more traditional quiche recipe, all you need is one bowl and one tart pan, and dinner’s on the table. This Meatless Monday, try out some of our favorite savory tart and quiche recipes.
For a vegan option, the mini crustless quiches, depicted above, are perfect. A variety of vegetables and herbs come together with a silken tofu-based filling for a quiche that everyone will love. For dinner, serve a few alongside a green salad. But these mini quiches also make a great appetizer or passed hors d’oeuvre for a party. Feel free to change up the variety of vegetables to suit the season.

Nutty gruyère cheese and sweet-and-savory onions make up the base of this delicious tart. Thyme and nutmeg add just the right amount of spice to the dish. Choose local organic gruyère from Wisconsin to make this onion and gruyère tart.

This spinach and feta tart is full of vitamin-rich leafy greens. To make it slightly lighter than other similar tarts, the base of this one is made with Greek yogurt instead of the more typical cream. Feta, with its strong flavor, can be used sparingly.

A frittata is similar to an Italian omelette, but it’s also a great substitute for a crustless quiche. Our version, with asparagus, red pepper and potato, is hearty and flavorful. If you didn’t jar your own spring asparagus, you can also use another vegetable, like Swiss chard or spinach, while you wait for them to come back into season.
