Garden Quiche with Candied Tomato Salsa

Garden Quiche with Candied Tomato Salsa

Creamy AE Whipped Smooth Cottage Cheese adds protein to this vegetable-packed quiche. We like using shiitake mushrooms best because they don’t give off as much moisture as button mushrooms. If using button mushrooms, be sure to sauté them thoroughly so the quiche isn’t runny. The fresh flavor of the tomato salsa is a must-have!

    For the quiche, melt the butter over medium-high heat in a large sauté pan. Add the bell pepper and mushrooms and cook until moisture has evaporated and vegetables are soft. Stir in the scallions just to heat through, about 30 seconds. Remove vegetables from heat and set aside.

    Blend the cottage cheese in a food processor until smooth and creamy. Add the Swiss cheese, eggs, cream, salt and cayenne; blend until smooth. Add the parsley and pulse just until incorporated. Pour half the egg mixture into the pie crust, top with the vegetables, then pour in remaining egg mixture. Bake 35 to 45 minutes or until center is just set and a knife comes out clean when inserted in center. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing into wedges.
