I do enjoy a good quiche recipe. If you have leftovers a quiche is a great way to make them into a new meal like in this ham, corn and cheddar quiche recipe. It’s a wonderful meal with a side salad and you can put almost anything in one; it can be a vegetarian recipe or have meat. They are good hot from the oven or at room temperature. Quiche are wonderful for potlucks. I made this with broccoli and cauliflower I had frozen

2 cups whole milk 
4 eggs
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups chopped roasted broccoli and cauliflower
1 TBS French’s mustard
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp salt

For the Roasted Cauliflower and Broccoli

1 1/2 cups broccoli and cauliflower – mine was frozen
1 TBS olive oil
1 tsp salt

  • Preheat the oven to 350°.
  • Place the frozen vegetables in a baking dish and drizzle with the olive oil and salt. Roast for 45 minutes until it is soft and lightly browned. Let cool and then chop it into small pieces.
  • While the vegetables are cooling make the pie crust; add the flour and salt to a large bowl and mix well.
  • Add the cold butter and shortening and cut in with a pastry blender or two knives until the mixture resembles small peas.
  • Add three tablespoons of the ice water and mix with a fork until the dough just come together. If it is too dry add more water one tablespoon at a time. You do not want it to get too wet.
  • Remove the dough from the bowl and knead gently until the dough forms a ball. If you have time refrigerate for an hour.
  • Otherwise roll it out until it will fit your 9″ pie pan with a bit of an over hang. Trim the dough, tuck the over hang under itself and then crimp the dough decoratively.
  • Place the pie plate in the ‘fridge while you mix the quiche ingredients so it can chill a bit.
  • Preheat the oven to 425°
  • Add the four eggs to a medium bowl and mix them very well with a fork, Add the milk, mustard, cayenne and salt. Mix well.
  • Shred your cheese. Now you are ready to make your vegetarian recipe.
  • Remove the prepared pie pan from the refrigerator.
  • Layer the roasted broccoli and cauliflower in the bottom.
  • Top with the shredded cheese. Carefully pour in the milk/egg mixture. I always put my quiche on a baking sheet before I put it into the oven.
  • Cover the crust to keep it from burning. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes and then lower the heat to 325°.
  • Bake for an additional 30 – 40 minutes, checking at 30 minutes and then in 5 minute increments until the center is just set.
  • Remove from the oven and let stand for at least 10 minutes before serving.

How Was the Vegetarian Recipe?

I served it with a simple salad. I made a honey lemon vinaigrette with a tablespoon of fresh lemon juice, a teaspoon of honey, a tablespoon of olive oil and sprinkling of salt. It was a perfect tart/sweet dressing for the salad. The sweet berries were a lovely complement to the rich quiche. Roasting the vegetables really brings out their natural sweetness. The sharp cheddar adds a wonderful tang. It was even better the next day. I am happy to revisit this vegetarian recipe.
