What I Made: Summer Veggie Quiche

Quiche is one of my favorite things to make.  The technique is always easy, the results are always good, and it makes for great leftovers for brunch or for an actual meal!  This recipe is even better, because it combines 3 of the items from my basket this week: zucchini, tomatoes, and onions.  Read on for the recipe.

Chop up the zucchini, tomatoes, and onion and add to a greased pie dish or casserole.  I recommend the latter, since this will be a FULL pie dish.  I used half peeled zucchini and half not because of what I had on hand, but it’s up to you.  Sprinkle over the top with parmesan cheese.

Buzz baking mix, milk, eggs, and pepper in a blender for about 15 seconds.  I used this as my opportunity to break out my unused stick blender, and it worked great! Pour this over the veggies.

Bake in a 400 F over for 30 minutes, or until an inserted knife comes out clean.
