Mixed Vegetable Quiche

Mixed Vegetable quiche recipe is one of my go to recipes for lunch.

Do you ever feel super guilty throwing vegetables away? Do you promise that you will Never Ever buy so much vegetables that you may need to throw it away?!I know I do… I have failed miserably in this department…

For me shopping for food or vegetables in general is like shopping for designer handbags or shoes. I get supper excited about the possibility of what I can cook with all the seasonal produce at a market stall.

So to ease my guilt I have created this recipe to resurrect the sad looking vegetables in my fridge.

I hope you enjoy cooking, sharing and eating as much as I do!

Happy Cooking.
