Summer Quiche

Summer QuicheEarly evening sunsets. Cool-breezed nights. Tapering tomato harvests. Weddings on weddings on weddings. September.

Can you believe it? Yeah, I can’t really either, especially as I sit here in a slightly steamy and sunny room writing about zucchini quiche. The deliciousness of late summer days. I love it.

Summer Quiche

This is actually the first quiche I’ve ever made, seasoned with the loving help of my roommate who has a rich history of it in her repertoire. (Thanks Amelia!)

It was inspired by some farm fresh eggs delivered from a friend and a large bounty of zucchini awaiting usage in the refrigerator. Those two ingredients go together quite well, especially when tomatoes are in the picture, too.

I chose to go crustless with this quiche in the name of keeping it a little lighter as we ride out these last few weeks of hot weather. However, if you want to make this a little richer, feel free to flake on the crust. You could also add some extra cheese if you wish too. If you do so, I’d recommend medium hunks of goat cheese.

The main focus here though is the veggies. Zucchini gives this some texture, while tomatoes add a sweet, acidic flavor that bursts across the surface. Perfecto.
