Lately I have been enjoying the diversity of quiche recipes. It all started when a friend texted me a picture of a perfect quiche
she made and it was that picture that inspired me to try out my quiche making skills. She told me that the picture was deceiving because it was a flopped quiche that lacked any tasty flavor but I was determined to make the same quiche regardless.
After finding the recipe I doubled the spices and tweaked a few more ingredients (did I mention that this was a vegan quiche that replaced eggs with tofu? My friend and I both un-veganed the recipe and used eggs instead, haha) and threw it in the oven (Not literally of course, but it looked like I did because eggs are spillable when in pie pans, oops).
The result was a eggy textured quiche with a very strong Italian (read ‘garlic’) taste… not the best for eating first thing in the morning. In spite of my flopped attempt at a tasty quiche I wanted to try again. So this time I made the recipe up from scratch using curry, less garlic, onions, spinach, bell peppers, salt, cumin, and pepper powder… better but not great.
My next attempt at quiche produced yet another mediocre quiche.
By this time I was tired of quiches! What does it take to make a truly great quiche? How do you make them taste as good as they look? And why do they all taste so similar? I wanted something different, something tasty and unique. And what could be more unique than an apple quiche? After formulating the recipe in my head I new I had a winner. But first I had to do what I always do when I think that I have an original idea- I googled it.
Nooo.... Someone had already come up with an apple quiche recipe. So it’s not original but I made it anyway and I like it. It’s tasty, it looks good and it’s super easy to make.
Here’s the recipe if you would like to try this custardesque appley deliciousness.
½ cup whole milk
1/3 cup apple sauce (unsweetened)
1TBS powdered milk
3 TBS stevia
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
Mix all together with beaters and bake at 350* for 45 minutes- 1 hour
1 large apple
Decorate top of quiche with sliced apple (I also like to sprinkle with cinnamon and oats)
Personally, I prefer to bake this the night before and eat it after it's been refrigerated.
p.s. I know the last FFF post was about pie but I promise to stop with the pie themed posts soon!
