Lattice top Peach Pie with crystallized ginger
Hide-A-Squash Vegetarian Quiche
Hide A Squash Vegetarian Quiche
1 pastry crust (use your favorite recipe)
1 summer squash, shredded
3 green onions, thinly sliced
1 cup cheddar, shredded
1/2 cup mozzarella, shredded
2 tablespoons of flour
1 1/4 cup whole milk
salt & pepper to taste
powdered garlic to taste
1. Preheat the oven to 450. Prepare your favorite single layer pie crust recipe in a 8 or 9 inch platter. Do not prick the pastry. Line it with a double lining of foil or parchment paper and fill with pie weights or dried beans to prevent the pastry from puffing up. Bake for 8 minutes, remove the foil or paper and the weights and return to the oven for 5 more minutes. Set aside. Turn oven to 325.
2. In a bowl, combine the shredded summer squash (I like to use the large holes on a box grater) and cheeses. Toss together with the 2 tablespoons of flour. Pour into the pie shell.
3. In another bowl, combine the eggs, milk, salt, pepper and powdered garlic. I like to give a few good twists of the pepper and salt grinders and a couple hard shakes of the powdered garlic. Beat until combined and pour over squash-cheese mixture.
4. Bake at 325 for 35-45 minutes or until a clean knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Be careful not to over bake--let's keep this a creamy textured quiche instead of a dry one. =)
