This week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe (Mushroom and Shallot Quiche, p 162) was a gift. So easy, so tasty and I just happened to have some leftover whole-wheat pastry in the fridge needing to be used up! Add to that, the fact that I most always have mushrooms, shallots, eggs, cream and cheese on hand and it’s an easy dish to whip up even on a weeknight. We tend to eat a lot of quiches in the fall and winter because I always end up with a weird collection of leftover veggies from our organic delivery box and quiche is a great vessel for bits and pieces of vegetables!
This was earthy and autumnal. A wonderful warm hug of a lunch on a chilly day. A quick hearty dinner when gently re-heated. And actually the perfect post-Hallowe’en breakfast to counter all that candy, for that matter. Now I am no longer scared of pie-crust pastry, there will be no stopping me. All quiche all the time. Well, maybe not but it wouldn’t be so bad would it?
French Fridays with Dorie participants do not publish the recipes on our blogs (though this week you are lucky, you can find the recipe online here) rather, we prefer if you purchase Around My French Table for yourselves (trust me, you definitely want this book!) which you can do here on Amazon or Amazon Canada. Or for free worldwide shipping, buy from The Book Depository. Go on, treat yourself – join us! Honestly, the recipes that I didn’t like I can count on one hand. Really!
