Caramelized Onion, Broccoli & Green Pepper Quiche

Quiche.

Doesn’t it just sound intimidating? I always thought you has to be some sort of master chef to be able to conquer the beast that is quiche (rhyme fully intended).

As a matter of a fact, you can be an amateur cook like myself and your quiche will turn out fine!

Wonderful, even!

This delectable meal take a bit of time to bake, but it is well worth the wait! Ryan & I kept saying “Oh my gosh, this meal is so good! I can’t believe how good this tastes!” over and over again.

And one thing that I love about quiche is that it is so versatile! Don’t have green pepper? Who cares! Have tons of cauliflower in your drawer that’s on it’s last leg? Use it up in the quiche!

So what are you waiting for?! Make this NOW!
