Gluten-free Quiche Recipe
A gluten-free quiche was on the menu yesterday.
During the last shopping, flour was out in three shops, due to COVID-19
lock-down which urged to improvise. The result turned out share-worthy.
The base consists of a Basmati rice, cheese, and egg mixture. Meanwhile, the topping contains a mixture of onions, garlic, zucchini and carrots with basil, salt and pepper with a sprinkled layer of goats feta in-between bottom and topping.
Left-over quiches are great for a snack the next day or to fill a lunch box.
