Elegant, healthy, romantic, and delicious! What more could a valentine ask for?

Ingredients:Organic Butter, for ramekins
Kosher or Sea Salt
1 cup Broccoli florets, very lightly steamed and cooled
6 large organic, free range eggs
½ cup organic half-and-half (or ¼ cup each organic milk and cream)
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg (freshly grated is best)
¾ cup shredded organic (hopefully raw) cheddar cheese (3 ounces)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Butter 4 8-ounce ramekins (or a 9-inch pie dish); set aside
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, half-and-half, and seasonings. Stir in broccoli and cheese.
Place ramekins on a rimmed baking sheet. Ladle quiche mixture into ramekins, dividing evenly. Bake until golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes.
Serve immediately -the beautifully puffed quiches will fall somewhat as they cool.
