Why we Love it: 

  • Vegetables rich
  • Healthy
  • Easy to make 

I have always shied away from the versatile quiche/tart recipes mainly because of the Crème fraîche. It’s just too heavy for me. 

Another no-go was the buttery crust. Most store bought crusts are super easy to use, but the ingredients on the label make me think twice before buying. I just do not feel comfortable feeding my toddler food that contain ingredients I cannot even pronounce. Let alone understand.

Recently though I have been wondering if I can substitute the buttery crust with a healthier & child-friendly base. so, that’s how my oatmeal crust was born. 

It’s so soft and delicious (just make sure you do not over bake – otherwise it will become too stiff and hard). 

For those who cherish a good & easy to prepare recipe for the whole family to enjoy together (like I do), the quiche is probably one of the best options. I feel I can throw almost every vegetable in there. That totally makes my efforts to decrease food waste much easier.

Recipe Notes

 
OATMEAL CRUST
Take care to remove your oatmeal crust in time (10 min max) , otherwise when you add the filling mix, crust may overbake and become tender. 
FILLING
I alway saute my veggie mix with lid on (not traditional I know), to reduce water and nutrients evaporation. 
Once you remove veggies from stove top and mix with eggs and yogurt, mixture may seem to water-y. Don't worry, it's meant to be rich in liquid. Otherwise the quiche filling will be dry and not that rich in flavor.
