Knit Together

Let one who wants to move and convince others, first be convinced and moved themselves. If a person speaks with genuine earnestness the thoughts, the emotion and the actual condition of their own heart, others will listen because we all are knit together.

broccoli quiche

I made broccoli quiche tonight because it was so cold out. The trick with quiche, I’ve learned, is to use real cream, or at least half-and-half. It makes a custard that holds up well. It looked so darn good when I took it out of the oven that I took a photo of it. The crust is homemade as well.

Want the recipe? It's from the new edition of the Joy of Cooking, pg. 140.

Preheat oven to 375F.
Prepare a 9-inch pie crust

1/2 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. olive oil
2/3 cup broccoli florets
3/4 cup of grated cheddar cheese
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
1.5 cups of half & half or heavy cream
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
pinch of freshly grated or ground nutmeg

Sauté the onion and garlic in olive oil until soft. Blanch and drain broccoli florets. (I used fresh and microwaved them in a closed container for 3 minutes.) Line the pie shell with the onions and garlic and add the broccoli; top with the grated cheese. In a bowl combine the remaining ingredients and whisk until mixed. Pour over the contents of the pie pan. Bake for 25-35 minutes until the filling is browned and set.
