Very good, different dish. I was intrigued by the use of rice in creating the crust for this quiche - and really enjoyed it. A nice blend of vegetables and seasonings and clear, accurate instructions.
Although this wasn't followed exactly, I used it as inspiration. I'm all out of rice, so I made a crust for it and changed the cheese to cheddar, because my son won't eat swiss. It turned out great and I thank you for the inspiration. :D
