Day 179: Veggie Quiche

I know I've already made quiche, but that was mini quiche. This is the big kind and my favorite combination of quiche in the whole wide world.

The first time I ever had quiche was a few years ago. I had never had quiche in my life before that let alone heard of it.

I was in some kind of party, and saw it. I had no clue what it was, but everyone was eating it and liking it. I asked the host if there was any meat it in. The host said no, so I was very confused.


I thought it was a weird kind of deep dish pizza or pizza tart. And let me tell you this - I LOVE pizza. I cut a slice and took a big bite.

I immediately tasted eggs.Eggs and bunch of vegetables, and that's when it hit me, this was not pizza. It was kind of like an omelet in a tart pan. 😂 But as I ate it more, I actually started to like it, and I don't really like eggs. Later I learned it was called quiche.


Anyway that was way back, and now I'm eating quiche a lot. And I love it! And I'm sure you'll love this recipe as well. It's super delicious both cold or hot. Full with vegetables and topped with some feta cheese.
