When Ria announced the Savory September challenge for A Sweet Punch,I was elated and sad at the same time.Elated because,a Quiche is something I've been wanting to try since long.I'd had a Cheesy Corn Quiche[now I am guessing it was a tart]sometime back and was looking forward to recreate the taste.But when I went through the ingredients,I was sad that it not only contained eggs and in Ria's words,couldn't be substituted because "a Quiche isn't a Quiche if it doesn't contain eggs"!!
I searched high and dry for Eggless Quiches and I did find many recipes--all vegan and I am not sure I wanted to introduce myself to Tofu--the main substitute for eggs in Vegan Quiches.
I am a vegetarian but I do use eggs in baking.I wasn't sure how I am going to taste the Quiches with eggs and was really in a dilemma till I came across this recipe.This is technically not a Quiche but uses similar ingredients.Something is better than nothing and I decided to go ahead with the recipe after all.
I have to admit,what started off as an apprehensive mission is mission successful.But next time I am adding some flavoring to the tart base.Both Ajay and me felt that the tart was quite bland compared to the filling,so maybe some more salt and chilli flakes,perhaps??Let me try it!!
