Low Fat Quiche With Rice Crust

"I'm not sure where I got this recipe, but it makes a nice, much lighter than normal, quiche. I like it made with broccoli and mushrooms, and served with fresh tomato slices. I do steam the broccoli a bit before hand if it is frozen."

  1. 4 Stars, frittata-like taste that benefited from the strong cheese (I used feta) to wake up the taste. I had difficulty getting the rice to make a crust, it took me much longer to complete (that may be due to my oven's calibration), and I was unable to remove a clean piece after letting it cool a bit. The brown rice adds a healthy touch, but for ease of serving, I would rather have a pie crust or lay down a phyllo sheet for the thinnest possible crust. I baked chicken breasts in water with traditional poultry herbs. I bought feta cheese by mistake, but its zing (or from goat cheese) was essential to this recipe. Thanks, Aimee for posting. Made for PAC Fall 2008.

This leaves me time to explore new recipes.&nbsp;I enjoy cooking and eating.<br /> <br />I love to bake, and my family likes treats, so we have cookies, muffins, and new-to-me English desserts sometimes, and I'm baking bread again.<br /> <br />My life also allows time for my other passions, reading and gardening. <br /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></p>
