  • ½ ½ leekleeks
  • 13 cup 75 ml green olives
  • 12 12 eggeggs
  • 1 cup 225 ml heavy whipping cream
  • 7 oz. 200 g shredded cheese
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp onion powder

  • salt and pepper

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Rinse, trim and thinly slice the leek. Add to a greased baking dish along with pitted olives.
  3. Add eggs, cream, the larger quantity of shredded cheese, and onion powder to a medium-sized bowl. Whisk to combine and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Pour the egg mixture over the olives and leeks. Add tomatoes and parmesan cheese on top.
  5. Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown on top and set in the middle. Cover with a piece of aluminum foil if the casserole is getting too brown around the edges before it's cooked through.

Tip!

Feel free to experiment by adding different kinds of vegetables, herbs and seasonings. You may need to sauté harder veggies like broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage a few minutes before adding them to the dish.

    Awesome recipe. Substituted onion for leek, added sauted green beans and asparagus.

    You really need to try the leeks. They add a different flavor to foods than onions. One of my favorite vegetables.

    I started cleaning and freezing 1/2 leek in zip locks since most DD recipes only call for 1/2 a leek and I can only buy them in three leek bundles. Makes prep a breeze later, though!

    Hi Mika!

    As we see it eggs could be a part of a vegetarian diet. But not a vegan diet.

    Parmesan isn't vegetarian, it uses calf rennet. Any vegetarian worth their time will know this already or at least check labels properly but it's it'd still be a good idea to change it and not misguide people.

    The "Diet Doctor" is counting on healthy people to have whipped cream in the house. In case you don't:

    To substitute for every 1 cup of whipped cream:

    mix 1/3 cup softened butter with 3/4 cup of milk
    whip with an electric beater for best constitency

    I'm sure there are other choices as well, but this was the first one I saw on google.
