Quiche! What an exotic sounding dish. So French. So upscale. You may think quiche is tricky to prepare. I used to. But it’s not, a fact I learned at my first outing to a Mother Earth News sustainability fair in Seven Springs, PA, when I attended a workshop led by Deborah Niemann.

One of her tips for living a simpler life was to serve quiche when company comes to dinner. Easy, she said. She was right. In fact, it’s ridiculously easy. Although we don’t have a ready supply of eggs like Niemann does, quiche has still become our go-to recipe whenever we have dinner guests.

All quiche needs to accompany it are a salad, perhaps some bread, and fruit for dessert, all of which can be prepared in advance. All the prep work for the starring attraction can be done ahead of time, too. I put the ingredients together and pop the quiche into the oven a few minutes before it’s time for company to knock on the door. Then I can fully share in a relaxed visit before we sit down to our meal. Since quiche takes a while to bake, it doesn’t even matter if the guests show up a little late.

Swiss chard is a perfect ingredient for a delicious quiche. So are kale, asparagus, broccoli and other garden fresh veggies.

If you’re lucky enough to have your own egg supply, quiche is a perfect way to use up excess eggs.
