What is a Quiche?

A quiche is a baked dish or tart made with a savory filling and thickened with eggs. For my little one who is allergic to eggs, I decided to make a quiche without eggs. Trust me; it tastes delicious!

  19. Fareeda says:

    How many teaspoons of salt did you use? I know the recipe states salt to taste.

    Thanks, I am planning to make this quiche this weekend.
    Thanks.

    • Ruchi says:

      Fareeda, you can go ahead and add 1.5 teaspoons of salt, taste the mixture and if needed add another 1/2 teaspoon to it.
      But again it’s entirely up to one’s taste.
