This simple vegetable quiche is easy to make and can be made ahead of time! It’s also gluten and dairy free, although you could easily use a store-bought crust or add some meat/cheese to suit your taste!
When I was younger, I’d look forward to parties and showers in hopes of snagging a slice of quiche. They seemed so “gourmet” that at the time I didn’t think I could actually make one myself. I visited a friend one day and she made a homemade quiche for lunch. I was so impressed that she made one and remember thinking she must have slaved away all morning to make this for me. When she told me how easy they were, I went out that week and bought the ingredients to make one myself. I used a store-bought crust, because baby steps 😉, and was pleasantly surprised when I took this beautiful pie out of the oven. It wasn’t hard to make at all!
I love quiche for the same reason I love pie—the crust! I love having a bit of flakey crust with each bite of sweet or savory filling. It’s such a simple dish too, yet can suffice as a complete meal. I included my gluten-free crust recipe below, but feel free to use your go-to crust recipe if you have one. I’m also lactose intolerant and make this without cheese, but if you eat dairy just stir a half a cup of your favorite cheese in with the eggs and you’ll be good to go!
I make quiche and frittatas regularly because they be made ahead of time and reheated easily. They’re also great for a crowd and easily customizable—substitute the ingredients in the filling with any veggies, meats, or cheeses you have on hand.
Quiche makes the perfect addition to brunch or is also delicious served with a side salad for lunch or dinner. Easter is this weekend, so for those of you who attend church on Sunday morning, you could make this Saturday night and pop it into the oven for a few minutes to warm it up when you get home from church and you have one dish finished and ready to go!
I hope you enjoy it as much as we did! Don’t forget to tag #wifemamafoodie on social media so I can see your beautiful creations! Happy Easter, everyone!Print
