  1. In a bowl, blend the yogurt, cornstarch, egg yolks, lemon juice, and sweetener until smooth.
  2. In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites until still peaks form, and carefully fold them into the yogurt mixture.
  3. Pour the mixture into a 9-inch microwave-safe pan.

BREAKFAST VARIATION

I’ve made crustless quiches with this same recipe.

Instructions:

  1. Remove the the Greek Yogurt, lemon juice, and Splenda from the recipe.
  2. Add in low-sodium ham or turkey (to your liking)
  3. Add in low-fat cheese (to your liking)
  4. Spray olive oil, lightly on the baking pan (I use a pie/cake pan)
  5. I like to heat mine in the oven, so preheat the oven to 350-degrees.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until full cooked.
