Garden Herb and Veggie Quiche Recipe For Dinner

You are going to love this herb and veggie quiche recipe for dinner! Quiche is one of my favorite summertime dinners because I can cook it in the morning and then enjoy it cold for dinner when the temperatures are higher. Plus, I have tons of extra fresh garden produce to use up that quiche is a natural choice for me. Of course, if you don’t have a garden, you can still find amazing deals on herbs and vegetables at your local farmer’s market.

Garden Herb and Veggie Quiche Recipe For Dinner

A quiche is basically an egg pie with a savory filling. That filling can really be any number of things from meat to vegetable. In the summer, I often make a quiche with garlic scapes when we have extra. This Paleo Brocolli quiche is perfect for people that are avoiding grains. Or, you may want to try this easy asparagus and bacon quiche. There are lots of easy quiche recipes that make a perfect summer meal.

So, what kind of vegetables can you use in your quiche? The possibilities are really endless. You can also toss whatever leftover vegetables you have from dinner into your quiche. A few of my favorites are:

  • Onions, chives, leeks, and scallions
  • Brocolli
  • Mushrooms
  • Asparagus
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Baby spinach
  • Fiddlehead ferns

If you’re wondering what herbs to put in quiche, any savory herbs should work in moderation. I have included basil, oregano, rosemary, chives, thyme, dill, and parsley. For cutting herbs, I find herb scissors are a huge time saver. Check out the handy video below on how to use herb scissors.

In this Garden Herb and Veggie Quiche, I used cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, oregano, parsley, basil and a combination of cheddar and Swiss cheese. I like the consistency of Swiss cheese for a quiche but I think that the cheddar gives it a better taste. Feel free to experiment until you get it the way you like it.

You can serve and enjoy this quiche recipe warm or cold. On hot summer nights, I enjoy it cold so I don’t need to heat the oven up when the temperatures are at their highest. But, you can certainly enjoy it warm as well if you want.

    This sounds yummy! I love quiche but Wendell is a big meat eater and complains when I try to pass something like that across the supper table.
