Roasted Tomato Quiche Provencale

In lieu of “What I Ate Wednesday” I decided to get atop my high horse and tell you, instead, what you SHOULD eat this Wednesday. And on this Wednesday you should eat this quiche.

Roasted Tomato Quiche Provencale

Ingredients

  • 1 frozen pie crust (or make it yourself, if you’re feeling fancy)
  • 3 eggs, 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 1 sweet onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 Roma tomato for topping
  • Olive oil
  • Herbes de Provence

Directions

  • Cook pie crust according to directions. Set aside to cool.
  • Prep your vegetables. Throw your cherry tomatoes in an oven-safe container lined with foil, toss with olive oil, salt, pepper, and Herbes de Provence. Don’t be stingy! Make sure each tomato has some seasoning, because this herb makes a huge difference in the taste of this dish. Roast the tomatoes at 400 for 10-15 minutes, or until the tomatoes start to pop open. Chop the roasted tomatoes into bite-sized pieces.
  • While your tomatoes are in the oven, start sauteeing your onions on medium-low heat with some olive oil, salt, pepper, and more Herbes de Provence. Cook the onions slowly, until tender and soft (about 10-12 minutes). Add the garlic and the chopped roasted tomatoes to the mix over low heat for 10 minutes.
  • Remove vegetable mixture from heat and allow to cool completely in a large bowl.
  • Once vegetables are completely cooled, add the eggs to the glass bowl.
  • Pour the egg+vegetable mixture into the prepared pie crust.
  • Sprinkle the top with the Parmesan cheese and add Roma tomato slices on top for presentation.
  • Bake at 375 for 35-45 minutes, or when the middle is set and puffed up, and the crust is golden brown. Every oven is different.
  • Serve with a side salad — I like mixed greens with a homemade garlic dressing (EVOO+balsamic+garlic)

It’s buttery. It’s flaky. It’s cheesy. And it tastes just like the South of France. Enjoy!

  1. OMG … I haven’t had a quiche in far too long. My favorite is broccoli and asparagus… I usually try to avoid dairy but every so often I splurge and this might be my next “must-eat”

  2. I have a favorite quiche recipe – onions and mushrooms and spinach OH MY! And when I say onions, I mean the recipe calls for 4.

  3. Quiche is my favorite! Or rather eggs haha, I think I may have a tiny bit of addiction, but this sounds amazing!

  4. I always wondered what the South of France tastes like πŸ˜‰ This looks great and something I would love to “veganize” with some silken tofu and nutritional yeast. Gotta love a good quiche πŸ™‚

  5. I love this!! This is great, it looks super yummy!! …perf paired with a salad for brunch or dinner!! YUM! Thanks for telling us what we should eat! You’re right!
