  • 2 cups cooked long-grain rice
  • 3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 3/4 cup egg substitute, divided
  • 1 teaspoon dried dillweed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 small garlic clove, crushed
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 (14-ounce) can quartered artichoke hearts, drained
  • 3/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • Green onion strips (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.

  2. Combine rice, 1/4 cup cheese, 1/4 cup egg substitute, dillweed, salt, and garlic; press into a 9-inch pieplate coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 5 minutes.

  3. Arrange artichoke quarters on bottom of rice crust; sprinkle evenly with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Combine remaining 1/2 cup egg substitute, milk, and next 3 ingredients; pour over cheese.

  4. Bake at 350° for 50 minutes or until set. Let stand 5 minutes; cut into wedges. Garnish with green onion strips, if desired.

    This quiche has a cheesy rice crust instead of a pastry crust, so not only is it a hearty meatless main dish, it’s also gluten free.


  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 wedge)
