Cherry tomatoes and basil quiche (quiche de tomates cherry y albahaca)


Après Noël une quiche....


And I love quiches easy, healthy and delicious, we were alone at home with Esperanza so the quiche will be vegetarian of course!

The original recipe is with spinachs but we use only little tomatoes and basil.

  7. Gloria, This is great! My wife has been wanting to make a quiche and this recipe will fit her needs as well as her taste... FYI...We live in a hilly area and there isn't any flooding anywhere around us except in a few low lying areas. Thanks for the concern though! Sounds like things got off to a rough start with the activity in Santiago but at least there is some hope for change with your upcoming vote on a new Constitution. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
