To give you sustenance for the final stretch, I've made a garden quiche. I decided to try something a little fancier than my father's oil and milk crust recipe, so this one has cornmeal and butter in it. Honestly, it was delicious! As for the inside filling, you can choose your veggies from the farmer's market, or select whatever looks best in your garden.

Preheat the oven to 425.

Ingredients for the crust

1/3 cup unbleached white flour
1/3 cup cornmeal
1/3 cup white whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup butter, slightly softened
a few teaspoons milk

Mix the dry ingredients together in a medium bowl. Cut the butter in until it resembles heavy sand. Add milk teaspoon at a time until the dough sticks together. Roll it out between two pieces of waxed paper and transfer it to a 9 inch pie pan.

 

Ingredients for the filling

2 cups chopped vegetables (I used snow peas and chard)
2 shallots, minced
Olive oil
3 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheese (I used cheddar and smoked gouda)

Saute the shallots a minute or two in olive oil over medium heat. Add the other vegetables and saute until they begin to soften.









 



In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and cheese. Stir in the cooked vegetables and pour the mixture into the prepared crust. 




 



Bake at 425 for 15 minutes, then reduce the heat to 350 and bake another 20-25 minutes until crust is golden and filling set. 


Enjoy!








MURDER WITH GANACHE, the fourth Key West mystery, is in stores now. DEATH WITH ALL THE TRIMMINGS will be out in December.

  7. Oh, joy, another pie crust recipe! I think I now have 15 (as I've probably whined here often, I have real issues with pie crusts). So far Krista's is leading the pack, since I can get it into a pie pan without it falling apart, but this one sounds like a contender!
