Recipe For Quiche

Quiche is such a versatile and easy-to-make dish that can be served for brunch, lunch, dinner or even a quick snack. While you can make the crust from scratch, I think there is no shame in keeping a ready-made pie crust in the freezer for times when you need to whip up a meal in a pinch. This is one of my favourite dishes because it is so easy to make and it tastes impressive.

Yam, Onion & Mushroom Quiche

Ingredients: 1/2 medium onion, 1 small to medium yam or sweet potato, 8-10 field mushrooms, 1 tbsp olive oil, 3 eggs, 3/4 cup milk, pinch of salt and pepper.

Directions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Thaw your pie shell if using a frozen shell. Chop up the onion, yam and mushroom. I chop the onion into strips, but you can dice it or finely chop it depending on what texture you like best. The yam should be thin enough so that it cooks at the same pace as the onion and mushroom. Heat in a skillet with olive oil until golden brown. Let your filling cool a little and then add to the pie shell. Whisk together the three eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour into the pie shell. Bake until golden brown, about 45 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean.

Serve with a salad & enjoy!
