« Recipe: Broccoli Quiche »

Broccoli Quiche

Yield: 6 servings, 

Ingredients

small bunch of broccoli, blanched and roughly chopped

1 small shallot, peeled and finely diced

4 jumbo eggs

1 cup heavy cream (may substitute 1 cup skimmed evaporated milk for low fat option)

6 ounces grated Gruyere cheese

freshly ground nutmeg, to taste

salt and pepper, to taste

9 inch tart shell, well chilled

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375F

In a large bowl, whisk eggs and cream until well blended.  Season custard with nutmeg, salt and pepper to taste.

Arrange half of the grated cheese on the bottom of the tart shell, followed by the broccoli and shallots.

Pour the custard over the vegetable.  Sprinkle with remaining grated cheese.

Bake the quiche until the custard is golden, puffed and set approximately 40 minutes. (The custard is set when an inserted knife comes out clean.)

Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes before serving.
