When you want to add more veggies into your kids’ lunchboxes but don’t want it to “look” like veggies, these mini carrot and zucchini bites add nutrition and taste delicious!
Sometimes, when I plan meals for the week, I find myself wanting to put to use some of the “leftover veggies, ” but I don’t always have enough for a full meal.
TI often try to explain to my readers that I have this weird ability to look at ingredients and use them in my favorite basic recipes, like a basic quiche recipe, and turn them into something like this mini carrot and zucchini bites.
For this recipe, I grated some leftover lonely veggies so that they didn’t go to waste. Because sometimes I have one lonely zucchini and then my mini quiche recipe comes to the rescue!
These turned out perfect for my family since they are a naturally gluten and grain free recipe. I like that they are high in protein and add variety to our school and office lunches.
Quiches come together quickly in one bowl, and the oven does the rest. You can eat these at any meal, or pack them in a lunchbox for school or the office. If you don’t mind quiches at room temperature, they pack great inside a lunchbox. Otherwise, heat them up and put them inside your favorite thermos.
I used sharp white cheddar to make this recipe nearly lactose free for my youngest. As always, check the labels to make sure the recipe fits your family’s dietary needs.
Simple. Universal. Filling. Need I say more?

The ingredients are really up to you and your family’s liking. Suggestions include onions, broccoli, peppers, spinach, mushrooms, and so on. Just chop them small enough so they are included within each bite of the cup. They’re assembled just like our Mini Tortilla Breakfast Cup recipe.
They’re great packed up for lunches or breakfast on the go! They can be baked ahead of time and kept in the fridge for easy reheating with a quick warmup in the microwave. They’re also naturally gluten- and grain-free.
Naturally gluten-free and grain-free; a delicious bite-size breakfast treat!
