A quiche is essentially an egg pie with a flaky pastry crust. Adding in cheese and sauteed vegetables makes it a nice meal and the tastiest leftovers. Quiche freeze easy, so this recipe is actually makes 2 full quiche, so halve-it if you only want one…
Some recipe notes before we proceed:
- The veggies are sauteed before use to ensure that the liquid that they naturally release is already mostly cooked off. If you don’t cook your veg before adding it to the quiche, it can result in a runny filling and extended baking time.
- Store-bought crust can be substituted in for this recipe, but I prefer the flakiness and nutritional content of a home-made one.
