This is really delicious, like a quiche but healthier.

This is great easy food to take along on a picnic. I made the recipe as posted, except for adding freshly ground black pepper and a little parmesan. I had to double the cooking time - it was more like 45 minutes than 20 in my oven. Thanks for posting Latchy.
