When you're not sure what to make -- or don't have the time or inclination to cook up a storm -- quiche, omelette and frittata are the ultimate throw-together options.

Quiches, omelettes and frittatas are quick to make, verstaile, packed with protein, and easy to add veggies into -- all the while being pretty low calorie and low carb. And you can even make them sans eggs if you're intolerant or vegan.

Here are seven delicious and healthy quiches, omelettes and frittatas to make at any time of day.

1. Tomato and zucchini frittata

From Love and Lemons.

Thanks to their versatility, a frittata is an easy way to make use of an odd bunch of veggies in a near-empty fridge. While this tasty recipe calls for tomatoes and zucchini, if you've got carrot, spinach, capsicum or olives, just throw them in.

Here's the recipe.

2. Rocket and mushroom quiche with almond meal crust

From Cookie and Kate.

Didn't think quiche could be healthy, with its buttery crust? Neither did we. The key is to make the crust using nutritious ingredients -- in this case, almond meal, herbs and olive oil -- and fill it with greens, mushrooms and goat cheese.
