Mushroom & Leek Quiche

Best thing about quiches is: it’s easy, cheap and it goes a long way.

It’s a beautiful piece of art. I mean, nothing feels better than to take a quiche out of the oven and be proud of being able to make such a beauty.

I know it looks hard work, but it’s actually pretty easy. And it’s so additive, after you make it the first time you won’t be able to stop for a few weeks, believe me.

Also, you can use a store-bought pie crust – no one will judge you – or don’t use a crust at all!

Another good thing about quiches is that you can basically add whatever filling you want, use leftover veggies you have on your fridge or just put your favorite ingredients together.

Basics: Leeks, mushrooms, red pepper, eggs, milk, garlic and oregano.

What a great combination: red pepper and leeks for sweetness, mushrooms for that earthy flavor and parmesan… oh well, because parmesan!

Full of veggies and protein, this quiche is ideal for a brunch or a light lunch or dinner. Perfect with a soup and/or a salad on the side.
