I have never been a low carb girl. I am not now a low-carb girl. I will never be a low carb girl.
That being said, here is a collection of some great tarts,quiches, pasties and anything else that involves carbs stuffed with veggies and, hopefully, more carbs!
These little guys are great to add to appetizer platters for parties and would also be great to pack in a picnic basket. The sticky sweetness of the balsamic onions works well with earthiness of the mushrooms and blue cheese. They are good cold. So, you don't have to worry about cooking them and keeping them warm during your event.
Perfect recipe for using up leftovers! If you have eggs, milk, rice and cheese, you can practically clean out your fridge right into your quiche pan. Sometimes I even add some leftover meat. It can be served fresh hot or cold or freeze it for a quick, easy meal during the week!
A meatless main course or delicious side. Or cut in smaller slices as an appetizer. Uses humble, button mushrooms. Looks tricky, but is very simple once you have the veggies sliced. Depending on your cheese, you may want to use a different herb than basil. Note: do not try to substitute frozen spinach for fresh - it will be too wet, and make your tart soggy.
I have a small cookbook from BHG that has favorite recipes from 1930 til 2001. This recipe caught my eye. I have just started to make quiche and this seems like a good starter recipe. It also seems like you also could use bacon, sausage, or shrimp for the meat.
I have been working on perfecting the perfect crustless quiche recipe for years. I always use spinach, but I bought some Rainbow Swiss Chard at the local farmer's market today, and I thought I'd give it a try in quiche. I used Rainbow Chard (pink/yellow/white/orange stems---- BEAUTIFUL), but you can use any chard (or try substituting other greens) I do notice that fresh greens give a much better taste than frozen greens though!
They don't call me the Sassy Chef for nothing, This onion pie is so delicious, a taste teaser, almost as good as "french onion soup" andthis dish has already acquired many fans. Since I love bread and soup, why not pull the two together in a harmonious ensemble of flavors... crusted dough, onions, beef and cheese. When the cheese melts on top and the broth meets the cheese, it looks so gourmet, and you will feel very proud of yourself. It makes a nice dish for any occasion.
This was brought up to the cabin we stayed at in Stehekin, WA by my cousin by way of her daughter, Cinda. Lovely dish and very tasty. We made the crust with Bisquick because it packs in better than crescent rolls. Either way its a delicious idea.
Whipping up this savory pie is a cinch when you keep frozen puff pastry on hand. Remember to use a very sharp knife to cut the pastry - if the edges of the dough are pressed together, it won't rise evenly.
This pie makes a lovely light supper dish. It takes very little time to put together and bake. Serve it with your favorite salad. This recipe is adapted from a cookbook by The Sons of Italy Florida Foundation.
This is my family's favorite quiche recipe. I tend to make it on Friday nights, when my vegetarian stepdaughter arrives home from the week at university with a large appetite for something home-cooked and satisfying. Serve with a bowl of soup or a salad, and you've got just that. What makes it so delicious in my opinion is the "secret ingredient" . . . mustard smeared on the bottom of the crust.I have noted one TBS in the recipe, but use as much as you need to provide an even coating. This quiche definitely tastes as good cold as warm from the oven, and makes a nice appetizer when cut in small portions, as well.
