Roasted Vegetable Quiche in Quinoa Crust

RoastedVegetable!uiche

I find that there is something very soothing about roasted vegetables. It’s what I consider one of my “comfort foods”.  I’m also a big fan of quinoa and love the nutty flavor and slightly crunchy texture.  You’ll find these pair together beautifully in this seasonal quiche.

You can choose any vegetable that is in season, such as peppers, zucchinis, eggplant, asparagus, sweet potato. I add onion and garlic and roast everything in the oven for about half an hour. Go ahead, get creative and have fun!

Making the crust
  1. In a small bowl mix flaxseed powder or chia seeds and water and set aside for about 10 minutes until mixture forms a soft gel.
  2. In another bowl mix cooked quinoa, melted butter, salt and pepper. Add flaxseeds or chia seeds and mix well.
  3. Using your hands, press to the bottom of the pie pan, pressing firmly to create a flat even crust, bringing up to the edges.
  4. Bake in 400˚F oven for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
Making the quiche:
  1. Layer roasted vegetables on crust. Layer sun-dried tomatoes on top of roasted vegetables.
  2. Distribute artichoke heart quarters evenly -- you'll have 1 quarter per slice when quiche is cooked.
  3. In a mixing bowl whisk eggs, cream, milk, herbes and salt and pepper. Pour over vegetables.
  4. Bake at 400˚F for 25 to 30 minutes or until set.
  5. Cool for 10 minutes before serving.

This quiche is so flavorful and pairs beautifully with my Black Kale and Endive Salad

  13. I haven’t had a quiche in so long but really enjoyed it last time I did. I’m sure that roasting those veggies first really gives it a whole new level of flavor too!

    • I roast a huge pan of veggies about once a week Kelly, so I always have them on hand to throw together a special this like this even when I am pressed for time and it does enhance the overall flavor 🙂
