I did tweak this one. I took everyone's advice... Cut back on the butter only 1/4 Honey cut up the nuts & carrots more so they didn't sink to the bottom & I tossed in a dash of garlic powder & chopped a small 1/4 onion -Onion in the carrot mixture & garlic went in the egg... This is great! It was a hit & fun to hear my son tell me how he was so surprised that it wasn't awful like most other quiche recipes! lol (He normally doesn't care for Quiche!)
After reading the reviews I made a few changes to the recipe. I shredded the carrots in the food processor and used another attatchment to break up the cashews into smaller pieces. With the previous comments on the carrots and nuts settling to the bottom I think that might solve part of the issue. Mine was loaded from top to bottom. I skipped the honey completely and added more egg (I never measure my quiche mix. It's just habit). I tossed the carrots and nuts with the cheese before filling with the egg mixture. Since I had enough to fill 2-3 shells I added spinach to one shell. Fantastic. great idea on flavors--the technique just needed a litle tweaking.
After reading the other reviews here I was thinking that maybe these flavors were going to be too weird for us in a quiche but we totally loved this. It got even better the next day as well. Other than lightly chopping up the carrots and cashews in a food processor I didn't change a thing. I served this with the avocado quick bread also on this website. A great brunch or light lunch dish and we thought delicious either hot or cold. Thanks for the recipe!
This dish has a lot of potential. I think it's way too heavy on the heavy cream which tends to overwhelm the eggs and makes you forget that it's a quiche. Also the next time I make it I'll cut way back on the honey.
I'd like to rate this higher but the flavor while good was not stellar. As my daughter and I ate it we were thinking it wants to be sweeter or it wants more egg and something like onion and/or garlic flavor. With the nutmeg and honey it wanted to be dessert but because of the egg carrots cashews and cheddar it wanted to be something else.
This is a very unique and tasty recipe. It was all the rage at a potluck brunch I attended. I altered the recipe by adding one more egg to give it a bit of bulk and reducing the honey to about 1/3 C. The one problem with the recipe is that I found that the cheese and carrot mixture stayed at the bottom while the egg rose to the top--it didn't all mix together the way quiche usually does and I'm not quite sure why this happened. This made the quiche hard to eat because the carrots and cashews kept tumbling around the plate.
