Forgiving Quiche

This is our forgiving quiche.   The recipe is nearly effortless, but even if you mess it up, the quiche still turns out beautifully.   It comes from none other than Molly Katzen's Enchanted Broccoli Forest, my first exposure to forgiving food.  Her trick:  spread an even layer of cheese at the bottom of the pie to absorb any excess water from sauteéd vegetables.   Our general formula for the filling is:   roasted veggie(s) + cheese + herb.  Some of our favorite combinations: 

  • mushroom + leeks + gruyere + thyme
  • broccoli + bell peppers + cheddar + dill
  • artichokes + red onions + feta + oregano

 3 eggs
 1 cup milk
 1 cup cheese of choice, grated
 ½ cup veggies of choice, roasted and chopped
 2 tbsp herbs of choice
 salt and pepper to taste

1

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.

2

Combine eggs and milk and vigorous whisk for about one minute. Alternatively, use a stand mixer or egg beater.

3

Add salt, pepper and herbs of choice and whisk for about one more minute.

4

Spread grated cheese evenly over the bottom of the crust. We use the 365 whole wheat crust from Whole Foods, but hats off to you if you make your own! Top with veggies until the pie appears to mostly full. These pies have the odd ability to "take in" as many veggies as you give it.

Pour in egg mixture and bake for approximately 50 minutes
