Tasty Tuesday

I got this recipe from a friend but of course changed it up and made it to my taste. I prepare it for brunch potlucks and it’s always a hit!

Vegetable Quiche

1/2 cup chopped zucchini

1/2 cup finely chopped onion

2 minced garlic cloves

1/2 bunch of spinach leaves or swiss chard

1/2 cup chopped baby portobello  mushrooms

1 tsp dried basil

1 tsp oregano

1/2 tsp course ground black pepper

1/2 tsp salt

6 eggs slightly beaten

1 cup Parmesan cheese

2 Tbsp cooking oil

9 inch pie crust

Heat cooking oil in pan over medium heat. Saute onions & garlic. Stir in zucchini & spinach and cook till tender. Add mushrooms and seasonings and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.

In separate bowl, combine beaten eggs & cheese. Then add vegetable mixture to eggs mixture & gently mix. Pour into pie crust.

Bake 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until toothpick entered in the center comes out clean.

*Note: to prevent a gummy crust, take fork & gently poke holes on entire crust then bake in oven for 5 minutes before pouring quiche mixture in crust.
