  1. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon salt over zucchini and let sit for 10 minutes to drain water.
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (235 degrees C). Line pastry shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty aluminum foil.
  3. Bake pastry shell in preheated oven for 5 minutes; remove foil and bake until shell is lightly browned, about 5 minutes longer.
  4. Reduce oven heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  5. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion, green pepper, tomatoes, mushrooms, garlic, and zucchini until just tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in curry powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper, and cinnamon; spoon vegetable mixture into crust.
  6. Beat eggs in a bowl; stir in milk, Parmesan cheese, and Cheddar cheese. Carefully pour egg mixture over vegetables.
  7. Bake in preheated oven until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.

My first attempt to make a quiche and it was a delicious success! I was skeptical about the spice combo, but it was perfect once I added a little smoked paprika. I used a whole wheat pie crust (...

I omitted the garlic and curry powder only because I have a sensitive stomach to spices. I used fresh grated Parmesan and mozzarella cheese with the egg mixture also to make it creamy. It's easy...

Very, very tasty. I used red pepper instead of curry powder, and used 1/2 cup of cheddar instead of the 1/4 cup of Parmesan. I added in some vegetarian sausage too. Cook time of 45 minutes wa...

Turned out fantastically. Made it for my French 2 class and it was a huge hit. I suggest that if you’re going to omit the curry and use cinnamon to use a graham cracker crust because it goes wit...
