Purple Potato and Carrot Quiche Recipe


A small brown bunny hopped by the casita early this morning. Fruit trees by the Chama River are blooming, laced with soft pinks and cream. Spring is arriving in tiny steps. I found some young purple potatoes at the market in town this week. Slim crisp carrots. Organic eggs. Perfect ingredients for an easy spring supper.

After five years of making flourless quiche recipes, I no longer miss the pie crust I used to love. This surprises me, but I'm not unhappy about it. Quiches filled with roasted vegetables are beautiful. Every slice reveals its own mosaic of edible jewels embedded in a creamy custard. Purple, yellow, green and orange. The colors of spring.

Ingredients:

First, roast your veggies:

3 baby or smallish purple or blue potatoes, sliced into wedges/slices
2 small gold potatoes, sliced into wedges
1 medium carrot, peeled, cut into thin sticks
A handful of small broccoli florets
Half a medium zucchini, chopped
1-2 cloves of garlic, minced

Toss the veggies and garlic in a roasting pan, drizzle with olive oil, and season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper; roast in a 375 degree F oven until fork tender, about 40 minutes or so. Remove and set aside. Keep the oven on.

Prepare the custard:

5 large organic free-range eggs
1/2 cup Half and Half, sour cream, or milk
Pinch of fresh grated nutmeg

Whip the custard ingredients with a whisk till frothy.

Instructions:

Grate your favorite cheese: Swiss, cheddar, Gruyère - it's all good. You'll need about a cup of grated cheese.

Lightly oil or butter a 9-inch pie plate.

Spoon the roasted veggies into the plate and arrange them evenly. Sprinkle the grated cheese on top. Pour the custard over the veggies and cheese, allowing it to seep in and around all the vegetables.

Options:
Add a half cup chopped sweet onion to the roasted vegetable mix.

Add some chopped chives or spring onions to the custard.

Add a tablespoon of fresh chopped herbs to the custard - parsley, marjoram, or basil.

    Bake the quiche in the center of the oven till set and golden, about 25 to 35 minutes. Test doneness with the wiggle method [jiggle the pie plate a bit to see if the center shimmies; if it does, cook for five more minutes] or if it's very close to done, insert a small thin knife into the center - if it emerges clean, you're good to go.

    Set the hot quiche on a wire rack to cool a bit before slicing and serving (this allows for a more precise slice).

    Serve with a salad of baby spring greens and glasses of crisp white wine. Raise your glass and toast spring.

    Serves 6.
