Ingredients

Crust (optional, can replace with store-bought Pie Crust)

1¼ Cups All-Purpose Flour

1 Stick Unsalted Butter, Cold, Cut into Small Pieces

½ Teaspoon Kosher Salt

2-4 Tablespoons Ice Water

 

Quiche Filling                             

2 Cups Small Broccoli Florets 

1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

5 Eggs

¾ Cup Milk

¼ Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper

1 Garlic Clove, Minced or Grated

1 Tablespoon Chives

¾ Cup Grated Cheddar Cheese

Salt and Pepper To Taste

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. 
  2. To make the crust, pulse the flour and salt in a food processor. Add the butter and pulse several times to break it down. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing just until the dough comes together, about 30 seconds. 
  3. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface and form into a disc, handling it as little as possible. Cover in plastic wrap and put in the freezer for 20 minutes or the fridge for an hour. 
  4. Meanwhile, add the broccoli to a sheet pan, toss with the olive oil and a pinch of salt, and roast for 13 minutes, until tender and crisp. 
  5. Remove the chilled dough from the freezer/fridge and roll it into a circle at least an inch larger than a 9-inch pie plate. Fold the circle in half and quickly transfer it to the pie plate. Press it into the plate and trim off any excess dough. 
  6. Dock the crust by poking it with a fork all over. If you have pie weights, place them on a piece of parchment paper on top of the crust. Place the pie plate on a baking sheet and bake the crust for 10-15 minutes, until it is set but not colored. 
  7. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cayenne, garlic, ½ teaspoon salt, and pepper. Fold in the broccoli, cheddar, and chives. 
  8. Pour the quiche filling into the crust and bake for 20 minutes, until the center is firm.
