Quail Grass Tomato Basil Quiche

Quail Grass Tomato Basil Quiche

 

A quiche is a variety of pastry that is mainly composed of cheese. It is a savory pastry as opposed to a dessert pastry, filled with meat, seafood and vegetables. Originating from French cuisine, quiches are enjoyed the world over as a meal in itself, or as a course over a larger dining experience. One of the most popular types of Quiche is the Quiche Lorraine, eponymously named after the Lorraine region in France. For this recipe we will be using quail grass, a green leaf vegetable that grows in warm climates, tomatoes and basil as the main ingredients.
