Last night I decided to make a quiche because I wanted to use up some vegetables we had.
*By the way, 3 tomatoes, 2 onions, a red pepper, a head of cabbage, a bushel of kale, 5 sweet potatoes and some chives cost us $10 at the Farmer's Market! So we will now be shopping there every weekend for our produce. And the farmer himself bagged our veggies, it does not get more local than that! The website: Nashville's Farmer Market will show you what vendors are there, times they are open and what is currently in season.
I love quiche because you can use just about anything! It really is one of those 'kitchen sink' meals.
1. I chopped up some tomatoes, onions, red peppers, chives and kale.
You could also use zucchini, squash, broccoli, spinach, mushrooms- really most vegetables.
You can also add bacon, sausage, ground turkey, and cheese. I added some cooked turkey bacon to my quiche.
2. I then sauteed some garlic, added the onions, and then added the rest of the veggies. I let that cook for a few minutes.
Because I am trying to avoid gluten, I made a crust with sweet potato slices.
3. Peel two sweet potatoes and slice them really thin. Arrange them in a pie pan like the one below:
5. Pour mixture into your pie pan and season with some salt and pepper.
7. Ta Da! Slice and serve :)
It was delicious!
-Preheat ove to 350 degrees
-Peel and thinly slice 2 sweet potatoes, arrange in a pie pan
-Add to sauteed garlic, cook for 5 minutes
-Whisk 8 eggs together
-Add vegetable mixture, cooked bacon and sun-dried tomatoes to the eggs
-Pour into pie pan and season with salt and pepper
-Cook for 40 minutes
-And done, easy!
I will be experimenting over the next few weeks with other yummy recipes that make a gluten free diet doable! Send me some of your recipes!
