This Mediterranean Vegetable Quiche is a great meatless option to enjoy for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner!
Not only is this vegetarian meal absolutely delicious, it is also surprisingly simple to make. Aside from having to sautée the vegetables, this Mediterranean Vegetable Quiche requires next to no work. It's a total win-win.
I always enjoy a meal that is both tasty and easy. It wasn't an accident that I used phyllo pastry. This choice eliminated the time involved with making pie dough. Sure, you could use a store-bought crust. There's just something about phyllo pastry that makes me happy.
This Mediterranean Vegetable Quiche is filled with sautéed red onions, zucchini, spinach and parmesan cheese. Trust me when I say your entire house will smell amazing while it's baking.
Pro Tip: make this quiche ahead of time. If you're planning to serve this dish to family or friends, remove the hassle of baking while company is over. This quiche can be made ahead and stored in the fridge. It reheats wonderfully and the leftovers are delicious to enjoy for days!
Unsure what pan to cook your quiche in? Here are some suggestions:
- For a tall quiche such as the recipe provided below, use a cake pan or springform pan.?
- For a quiche with less filling, use a tart pan or pie plate.
- In a pickle and don't have any round pans on hand? Use a square pan.
