This is a super simple recipe, and perfect if you are on a zero food waste challenge, since you can use most of the vegetables that are about to go bad on your fridge.
I love quiche, which is a French dish that usually comes with a crust, like a pie. The problem is, the crust needs butter, and you can’t replace it with oil as this ingredient substitution table says, because the cold butter will give consistence to the dough. And butter is really expensive here, and goes bad quickly, so it is banned from my shopping list, as I don’t usually cook with butter. I am left with oil, and tried this no crust quiche recipe.
The real quiche comes with lard, cream and grated cheese. This one is a lighter and less expensive version.
For the quiche mix, you just have to mix three eggs with a cup of flour and a cup of milk. I used cream and water since my cream was about to go bad. First mix the eggs and flour, then add the milk, salt and pepper. Dice all the ingredients you wish to include in the quiche. I used a fresh cheese, a mature cheese, a tomato, an onion, a leek, a bell pepper, and a jalapeño pepper. The mix should cover everything, but toppings should be abundant.
Add all that to the egg and flour mix, pour into an oiled Pyrex, and bake for 40 minutes at 180 Celsius, 350 F. Easy, right?
The cost of this vegetable quiche was about $3 for six servings, it is a perfect dish to bring to a party, you can serve it cold, it tastes better if you leave it out of the oven for at least half an hour. You can cut it into small cubes and serve it with toothpicks to your guests.
