Meatless Friday: Basil and Tomato Quiche

meatless friday redesign

If you are looking for a quick and easy recipe for the summer months – don’t look any further. This is my favorite quiche recipe (created by myself by trial-and-error) that can be prepped ahead of time and cooked later. Even better, it’s great for leftovers. As a mother of four children, I intentionally cook my dinners to last for more than one meal. Make this quiche for dinner and serve it warm for breakfast the next morning.
