Summer Vegetable Quiche

1 prepared tart shell, partially baked
3 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup onion, chopped
1/4 cup roasted red pepper, small, chopped
2 zucchini, small, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 cups fresh spinach, chopped
4 lg. eggs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
1 cup milk
1/3 cup crumbled goat cheese

Preheat oven to 375.

In a large saute pan, heat oil. Add onion and cook until transparent. Add garlic and spinach and cook until most of the liquid from the spinach is evaporated. Add zucchini and red pepper until just heated through. Drain off excess liquid.

Beat the eggs in a bowl and add Parmesan, milk and goat cheese. Add the spinach mixture into the shell. Pour egg mixture over and fill to the top of shell.

Bake on a sheet pan in the middle of the oven for 20 to 30 minutes or until egg is firm and set.

 

Pate Brisee
Yield: 8 tartlet shells

2 cups all purpose flour
8 Tbsp. butter, chopped and chilled
2 egg yolks
3/4 tsp. salt
5 to 6 Tbsp. cold water

Sift flour onto a flat surface and make a large well in the center. Place butter, egg yolk, salt and small amount of water in well and quickly work with fingertips until partly mixed.

Using fingertips of both hands, gradually work in flour to form coarse crumbs. If crumbs are dry, and add more water, a few drops at a time. Press dough into a ball - it should be soft but not sticky.

Lightly flour working surface and blend dough by pushing it away with the hell of your hand and gather it up with either a scraper or a spatula. Dough should be smooth and pliable and should peel easily from working surface. Press into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 30 minutes. Wrapped dough can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 3 days and in the freezer for 6 months. Roll out and place into a 9 inch tart pan. Weigh down shell with pie weights. Partially bake the shell for 10-12 minutes until dough begins to harden but not all the way cooked. Remove shell from oven and remove weights.

Grace's MOTIVATION Monday

Great place to be...

Allow what wants to happen, to happen. Allow what is right, to be, and to expand.

Don’t fight against your own authentic nature. Embrace the unique beauty of the gifts you have to give.

Live with joy and positive purpose in the moment, whatever it may bring. Do what you know is right, what you know is best, and what you know is true.

Life is more magnificent than you can ever imagine. Go ahead and imagine anyway, from the perspective of what you love and value the most, and bring what you imagine to life.
