This delicious quick and easy vegetable quiche whips up in just minutes. This dinner is the perfect way to go meatless for a meal without feeling deprived!
For some reason the idea of making quiche used to always scare me–maybe it’s the fancy name–but it is actually very easy and pretty fool-proof. I originally got this recipe from my friend Shannon, who inherited it from her very adorable and very French mother-in-law. For this particular version, I used a frozen broccoli, chopped onion, & cheddar cheese combination, but you could literally throw in pretty much any vegetable (or even meat!) that you have on hand.
Quick & Easy Vegetable Quiche
As far as the crust goes, you can use a ready-made rolled refrigerated version, which is where the quick & easy part comes in, or, for slightly more effort (but a tastier, flakier crust) you can make your own using this easy tutorial. In any case, DO try this recipe, and sooner rather than later! You might just find you’re making it all the time!
Here is what you need:1 pie crust 4 eggs 1/2 cup milk 1/2 cup cream 1/2 cup onion, finely chopped 1 10 oz bag frozen broccoli 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese 1/2 teaspoon season salt 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place crust in pie plate. Finely chop onion and set aside.
Step 2: Whisk eggs until well blended. Add milk, cream, salt, and pepper and whisk again.
Step 3: Place finely chopped onions on crust then top with broccoli.
Step 4: Top vegetables with shredded cheese.
Step 5: Pour egg mixture over cheese, then fold over crust edges as desired.
Step 6: Bake for approximately 35-45 minutes or until set in the center. If cheese is browning too quickly, cover with foil.
Step 7: Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
P.S. Here are a few other combinations you might want to try in place of the broccoli:
1/2 onion (diced) + 1 package frozen spinach (thawed) + 1 can fire-roasted dice tomatoes (drained)
1/2 onion (diced) + 1 package frozen corn + 1 can green chiles (drained) + 1 can Rotel tomatoes (drained)
1/2 onion (diced) + 2-3 cups cooked ham (diced)

If I choose to you fresh broccoli and other vegetables, do I need to cook them first or can I just chop up and put in quiche to cook in oven?
Trish- You will want to cook your vegetables first since fresh vegetables release water. Cook vegetables then drain excess water and then use in quiche. I hope you enjoy!
