Carrot & Goat Cheese QuicheExcited to use my 9-inch tart pan again, I went ahead and greased mine with vegetable shortening, to make the “Carrot & Goat Cheese Quiche,” as adapted by Love & Flour. It’s a quiche that includes only three eggs, but also frozen puff pastry -- always a treat to use. And I was lured by the combo of carrots and onion and apple and goat cheese.

Now mind you: I did not try to be pretty, here. I layered my components sloppily, and was OK with that. The winner in this quiche was the goat cheese. Fabulous! The apple and onion were sweet, the cheese was sharp and tart. I baked my quiche for much longer than the recipe suggested. I baked it for 57 minutes, until it was lightly browned. Enjoy this one.

Puff Pastry (1 sheet) = $2.13

Next time, I want to make the “Cantaloupe Gazpacho” (that’s right!), from the July 2013 issue of Bön Appetit, along with the “Grilled Cilantro Lime Chicken,” from Simply Recipes. See my meal when you come back to my site next week.
