Microwave Veggie Quiche With Brown Rice Crust

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by tbean1

I love this healthy alternative to the traditional quiche. The brown rice crust is surprisingly good. You can substitute whatever fresh veggies you have on hand. I love to add a little cheese.

I liked the idea of this, but like the previous reviewer said, it was a bit bland. It smelled like the Italian herbs, but that flavor didn't come through very strongly. I used a bag of Steamfresh brown rice, and a teaspoon of dried parsley for the crust; and canned asparagus, whole wheat flour, and two four-ounce cups of All Whites for the filling. I also skipped the margarine, and didn't miss it. I did microwave the filling, but I baked the crust in the oven, and the entire thing after pouring the filling into the crust. It took about 45 minutes on 350. Thanks for posting.

  1. Combine crust ingredients. Mix well. Press over sides and bottom of a 9" pie pan. Microwave on high till crust is set, about 2 minutes.
  2. In a 2-quart casserole dish, combine veggies and margarine. Microwave on high for 4-5 minutes or till veggies are tender-crisp.
  3. In a small bowl mix all other ingredients. Add this to the veggie mixture. Return to microwave and heat on medium for 4-6 minutes. Stir often, remove when mix starts to set around the edges of the bowl.
  4. Pour mix into crust. Microwave on medium heat until set in the center, about 10-12 minutes. Let sit 5 minutes before serving.
