Chard & Mushroom Quiche-ish

Chard & Mushroom Quiche-ish | Bijouxs Little Jewels

Chard & Mushroom Quiche-ish is a cross between a quiche and a frittata. Going crustless creates a quiche that is a breeze to prepare. A versatile dish that can be served at almost any mealtime, another little jewel from the Bijouxs Kitchen.

GOING CRUSTLESS

I have been experimenting with ‘crustless’ versions of many classics sweets such as apple & pumpkin pie which have been a success and this a sort-of tart Summer Simple Tomatoes with Ricotta & Romano Cheese. Chard & Mushroom Quich-ish is a full-fledged crustless savory recipe. Cutting down on prep time and the calories, crustless quiches came on my radar. The recipe I adpated is from a fellow blogger, back in the golden age of food blogs.

VEGETABLE QUICHE

Quiche is a flexible, forgiving way to use extra vegetables. The chard and the mushrooms were gifted to me, so I went about to find a simple quiche recipe to use the vegetables. This recipe avoids the heavy cream that is part of most quiche recipes, instead eggs and cheeses provide the base for the vegetables.

Mushrooms and Swiss chard anchor the dish, fresh dill and green onion provide more flavor. The key to Chard & Mushroom Quiche-ish is that instead of a crust, the baking mix provides the body to the quiche-ish. A very useful pan in the kitchen pantry is a tart pan with a removable bottom. I used a 9 inch diameter pan such as this one, going for the non-stick is a good investment, time and energy. I also baked the quiche-ish in a parchement lined sheet pan, just in case of any leaking.

QUICHE-ISH FOR DINNER

Chard & Mushroom Quiche-ish makes for a wonderful light supper or with brunch. Add a fresh green salad with Dijon vinaigrette and perhaps a glass of light white wine.
