Zucchini & Spinach Quiche
Quiche is a very easy dish to prepare and the ideal make-ahead main for picnics, potlucks, and late summertime dinners. With a basic winning custard (2 eggs, 1 egg yolk, 1 1/2 cups half-and-half, salt and pepper, beaten), this recipe adapts to endless varieties of vegetables, cheeses, and herbs.
This zucchini & spinach version was simply very thinly sliced zucchini sauteed with a little butter and garlic. Added some chopped spinach at the end of the saute. I used a pre-made crust, l grated cheddar cheese onto the bottom of the crust and topped it with the sauteed vegetables. Added a little chopped cilantro to the custard and poured that over the vegetables. Topped with some more grated cheddar and grated parmesan, and baked for 35 mins at 375 F degrees. Pour yourself a glass of wine and enjoy this homemade gem with salad or steamed/sauteed vegetables. Enjoy!
