Vegetable quiche cut into triangular pieces on a white platter


  • 1 (9 inch) deep-dish pie crust

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • ½ cup sliced onion

  • ½ cup chopped green bell pepper

  • ½ cup mushrooms, sliced

  • ½ cup chopped zucchini

  • 1 large tomato, sliced

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons dried basil

  • 3 large eggs, beaten

  • ½ cup milk

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 ½ cups shredded Colby-Jack cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Bake pie crust in preheated oven until firm, about 8 minutes.

  3. Remove crust from the oven and set aside. Reduce oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  4. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper, mushrooms, and zucchini and cook, stirring, until softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove vegetables from skillet and set aside.

  5. Sprinkle tomato slices with flour and basil; cook in the skillet over medium heat for 1 minute per side. Set aside.

  6. Whisk eggs, milk, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl.

  7. Spread 1 cup cheese in the bottom of pie crust. Layer vegetable mixture over the cheese, then top with tomato slices. Pour egg mixture over top and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese.

  8. Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before serving.
