I was very excited to try this quiche -- it seemed like a great idea. Despite seeding the tomatoes before including -- I thought they made the dish too wet. I used less carrots because I had very large carrots but even w/ only two I thought the texture of the shredded carrots was overwhelming. I felt the overall taste and consistancy of the dish was unappealing. I was disappointed w/ the result. I think the idea is a good one but the amount of veges included is too much & the spicing is too little. I may try something similar w/ modifications.
I thought this was a great idea as I hate quiche because of the 'eggy' taste. And you can put any veggies you like.
