veggies quiche

Based on wikipedia, A Quiche is defined as an open faced savory tart (pie) filled with a smooth and creamy custard-like filling. The name "Quiche" comes from the German "Kuchen" which means "cake". Quiche originated in the Lorraine region of France and the classic 'Quiche Lorraine' has a filling made with beaten eggs, cream (milk) and bacon. Today, a Quiche can have a wide range of flavors and while it normally has a custard filling, with bacon (or ham, sausage, or some kind of meat), it often includes vegetables and cheese.
