Recipe: Herbed Zucchini Quiche
Yield: 6 servings
1 Basic Easy Crust; see * Note 2 tb Olive oil 2 Garlic cloves; peeled and -- crushed 1 md Yellow onion; peeled and -- diced 1 tb Chopped fresh basil 1 tb Chopped fresh parsley 2 ts Chopped fresh rosemary 6 Eggs
1/4 c Sour cream
1/3 c Heavy cream
Salt; to taste Freshly-ground black pepper; -- to taste 3 md Green zucchini; thinly -- sliced
Prepare the "Basic Easy Crust." Roll out three quarters of the dough to 1/8-inch thickness, then wrap the remaining quarter of the dough for another use. Place the dough in a deep 9-inch pie dish and trim it so there is 1/2-inch of excess around the edge. Poke the bottom of the dough all over with a fork. Form an attractive edge around the dish by pinching the overhanging dough between your fingers. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 10 minutes. Remove and allow to cool. Heat a large frying pan and add the oil, garlic and onion. Saute until the onion is clear. Add the herbs and cook a couple of minutes more. Allow to cool. Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl. Beat in the sour cream, heavy cream and salt and pepper to taste. Place some of the egg mixture in the bottom of the prebaked pie shell. Add a layer of the onion mixture and a layer of sliced zucchini. Continue layering, finishing with the egg mixture. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes, then reduce the heat to 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes until quiche is set. Remove and allow to cool a bit before cutting. This recipe serves 6.
