Moosewood Swiss Cheese and Mushroom Quiche

Moosewood Swiss Cheese and Mushroom Quiche created by diner524

So, I'm kind of a picky eater and while I like a lot of spices and cusines, there are quite a few basic ingredients out there I can't stand, three being: swiss cheese, mushrooms and...egg. So why in the world would I post this recipe? Only because it completely knocked my socks off! Somehow when you combine all those yucky ingredients in this magical way it turns into the most delicious brunch...or lunch...or dinner ever! Enjoy!

    I have been using my Moosewood books for years, to the point that the pages are falling out! I love this quiche recipe. If I wanted to cook the quiche the day before I need it, how can I safely reheat it without overcooking or drying it out?

    It was good. I had to bake an extra 15 minutes. That’s all. I have for many, many moons had the “Moosewood Cookbook” by my side in the kitchen. I may have made this quiche before! I think it’s a good base. My changes, less cheese. Just too gooey for me. I would add more mushrooms or other veggies.

    I never use a crust and it comes out great. I butter the pie plate and use Manchego, swiss, or gruyere cheese for the base, I use gluten free flour and Almond or coconut milk. I saute vegetable with onions (whatever vegetables I have) and it always turns out great.

    Does the pie crust need to be pre-baked?
