Use your air fryer to make these perfectly fluffy mini quiches with mushrooms, chickpeas and greens. You can add a flaky crust or make these crustless in ramekins.

- 1 12-ounce bottle JUST Egg
- 6 3-inch or 4 4-inch frozen pastry tart shells (see note)

Parbake the crusts (optional)(optional)
Take the tart shells out of the freezer and let them thaw a bit while you preheat the air fryer to 350°F for five minutes. Prick the bottom of the crust once or twice with a fork to keep from puffing up while baking. Parbake the tart shells in the air fryer at 350°F for three minutes. Remove from the basket and set aside.
Note: Instead of frozen tart shells, you can line individual pie pans, single aluminum muffin tins (available at most grocery stores) or even silicon muffin tin liners with store-bought pastry crust or puff pastry.
Or make these quiches crustless using aluminum muffin tins or 6-ounce ramekins greased liberally with olive oil.

Add the vegetablesvegetables
Cut the vegetables as directed. Divide the vegetables and chickpeas evenly between the tart shells. Each crust should be about three-fourths of the way full. Sprinkle the fillings with salt, freshly ground black pepper and a touch of cayenne.

Cook the quichesquiches
Preheat the air fryer for two minutes. Arrange the quiches in the basket and air fry at 350°F for eight to 10 minutes. Each air fryer is different, so check at eight minutes. If a paring knife inserted into the middle comes out with some liquid JUST Egg on it, cook for another two minutes or until the liquid is completely set.
Note: For the crustless variation, bake for 12 to 15 minutes, first checking at 12 minutes.
