Quiche Again!

Tonight, we had quiche for dinner again. I love quiche. It's a great way to use up lots of vegetables, and it feeds the two of us for at least 4 meals. This weeks was different from the last, as we are in the midst of different vegetable seasons at the market. This week's recipe is:

Summer Quiche

1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup cold butter
1/4 cup ice water

Pulse flour and salt together in a food processor. Add butter and pulse until it is the size of peas. Slowly stream in water until dough is formed. Cover and let sit in the fridge while you get the filling ready.

6 mushrooms, sliced
1 cup sliced broccoli
1 cup sliced swiss chard
small handful pea greens
2 tbsp. chopped fresh dill
1/2 small onion, sliced
5 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Mix all ingredients together and pour into pie shell that has been rolled out and placed into a greased pie plate. Bake at 375 F for about 45-60 minutes.

Have a lovely evening,



  1. Yum! Quiche is great. Not something I liked as a kid, but really appreciate now.

    With it being winter here our girls are down to laying only 3 eggs a day so not enough right now for quiche but will be again soon I hope.

    Thanks for the pic - mmmm looks great!
