Serves 8 | Prep Time 20 min | Cook Time 45 min - 1 hr

Ingredients

Pie Crust
4 eggs
1 cup milk or cream
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese - I prefer cheddar or an Italian cheese mixture
1 1/2 cups fresh broccoli, chopped, or fresh spinach
1 onion, chopped
1/2 bell pepper, chopped
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp mayonnaise
Salt
Pepper
Italian Seasoning (or some combo of Parsley, Thyme, Oregano, Basil, Rosemary, & Sage)


Preheat oven to 350.



If using broccoli, steam it until tender but too tough to eat. If using spinach, shock it by boiling for 30 secs - 1 min, straining it, separating the clumped leaves, cooling them in a bowl of ice water, and draining in a colander once cooled.



Sautee onion, garlic, and bell pepper until soft, 5-10 min over medium heat.



Beat the eggs together with the milk/cream and mayonnaise until well blended. Add the vegetables, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Add 1 cup cheese. Mix well.



Pour the mixture into a prepared pie crust. Top with remaining cheese. Bake for 45 min - 1 hr.

Notes

This is an easy quiche recipe that my mom taught me. I use my own favorite veggies, though you can add whatever ingredients you want to the egg-milk-cheese template. A no-hassle dish that's classy because it has a French name. I hope you enjoy its awesomeness and simplicity!

Just a question...Can I make the crust using soy milk? Thanks, Jenni
