  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (235 degrees C). Line pastry shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty aluminum foil.

  • Bake pastry shell in preheated oven for 5 minutes; remove foil and bake until shell is lightly browned, about 5 minutes longer.

  • Reduce oven heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • 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.

  • Beat eggs in a bowl; stir in milk, Parmesan cheese, and Cheddar cheese. Carefully pour egg mixture over vegetables.

  • Bake in preheated oven until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.

I used the veggies I happened to have ready in the garden that day, zucchini (shredded), cherry tomatoes (halved), and jalapenos (sliced). I also changed the spiced to cumin and chili powder to compliment the veggies I was using. I had to add about 30 min to the cooking time, but in the end it turned out delicious! Great way to enjoy summer produce! Will definitely make this again! Read More

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 (from Whole Foods) and I added some spinach to make it even healthier. I also put the cheddar on top. Yum!! Read More

I used a 6" quiche tin that I salvaged from a bought one & made my own pastry for this dish I didn't have a lot of the ingredients for this recipe so I basically used what I had. I used beaten eggs a little milk grated cheese chopped onions mushrooms and tomatoes inside and garnished on top a little cheese and sliced tomatoes. Read More

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 was spot on for me. Will definitely make again! Read More

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 and love it! Read More

Very good. I used broccoli instead of the zucchini and took only half onion and more of the other vegetables. Read More
