Project Pinterest: Broccoli and Cheese Quiche

{With a Brown Rice Crust}

So, WOW.  I found a BLOG with this amazing-looking Broccoli Quiche recipe a little over a week ago. Doesn't it look delicious?  I LOVE broccoli.  Really. Love. It.  Well, since I pinned it, almost 2000 people have repinned it, and more than 200 people have "liked" it.

Let's face it.  That's one pretty picture, right?  And if you like broccoli?  SOLD!

So, it was driving me crazy that all these pinners had repinned, and I hadn't even tried this yummy dish yet.  I live in a house of broccoli haters.  They humor me from time to time, but they hate it.  I was pretty sure they wouldn't humor me on this -- so I didn't even wait for them.  I made it for me.  (Feel free to stop over if you want to try it!  HA!) 

You see (above) MY pinning.
Here is my source: A Little Bit Crunchy A Little Bit Rock n' Roll with the pretty picture.
Here is her source: FaveDiets with the original recipe from Kevin.

So, I just now tasted it.  Really!  It just came out of the oven a few minutes ago, and... ohhhhh, DE-licious!  Total success.

Here are some notes.
1.  I got so excited to get this in the oven, that I totally forgot the nutmeg, and to salt and pepper.  Don't YOU forget!  
2.  The rice (as the crust) is totally cooked, but not crispy.  I wish I would've pre-baked it a little longer.  I was afraid of over-doing it.  Next time I'll know.  (The spots where the rice was crunchy were tasty!)

3.  If you look at the two photos I linked you to above, you'll notice that the pretty picture has the broccoli in much smaller pieces.  I took note of that, thinking it would be much nicer to eat that way rather than having a big chunk of broccoli in the middle of your pie. Exactly right.  I diced up my broccoli pretty small, and was happy with the delicious results!
4.  Lastly, take note about turning the oven temp down after pre-baking the crust!

Bon Appetit!
