Broccoli & Swiss Chard Quiche – A Joint Cammy & Mommy Cooking Adventure


Can you believe I am STILL harvesting rainbow chard from my planting this spring?!  Any plant I did not pull has been producing new leaves all summer.  Add the broccoli that I recently bought and we have the makings for a great quiche – which is a good new dish for our Top Chef, Cammy, to make.

But this one requires a bit more prep work on the part of the Bottom Chef – that’s me.  The broccoli and chard each needed to be sauteed (with garlic, of course) before they could be used in the quiche.  So I did that while he was still at school.  I let him use a prepared crust, so when he got home, everything was ready.

Broccoli & Swiss Chard Quiche

1 pie crust

2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided

2 cloves garlic, minced, divided

3 cups of broccoli florets

1/2 tsp salt

2 cups chard leaves, stems removed (from the garden)

1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

3 eggs (from Farmer Kim)

1 cup lowfat milk, organic

Freshly ground black pepper

In a large skillet, heat 1 Tbsp olive oil and 1 clove of minced garlic over medium-high heat.  Add the broccoli and saute until tender and starting to brown a bit, about 4 minutes.

Sauteed broccoli

Remove the broccoli to a bowl.  Return the pan to the heat and add the other Tbsp olive oil and garlic clove.  Add the chard leaves and saute until just wilted – about a minute.

Add the chard to the broccoli.  Set aside.

Great technique – I thought this was going to be a mess, but he did great!

Beat the eggs with the milk, add pepper.

Crack the eggs

Pour in the milk

Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables.
