This is from a supermarket magazine I picked up. It's a great recipe for picnics or for a light summer dinner served with a side salad. Roasting the vegetables before using them in the quiche means a little more effort, but it's well worth it as it really brings out all the sweetness and flavours.

This was excellent! Readers' comments were helpful as I tried different vegatables to suit my taste- zucchini, yellow squash, fresh mushrooms & red onion. A friend recommends adding 1/4 t ground ceyanne pepper to any quiche as they tend to be bland otherwise. I did this and it is fabulous. It gives it warmth without the heat, with no complaints from my Scandanavian palates. Baking the crust and roasting the veggies a day ahead made the prep on the day of a snap. 4 oz of gruyere shredded seemed like a lot but it baked up beautifully! Thank you for sharing!
