Of course, because I am eliminating certain foods at the moment I am craving meals with those very ingredients. So I challenged myself to make another quiche. I call it an alterna-quiche. It took some work to find a good crust recipe. The hilarious bit is that I had never made a crust before my first alterna-crust made a couple weeks ago. This crust turned out nicely as did the first. My issue is that I need to learn how to roll dough. I sort of suck at it. This crust is a delicate thing and I fear that I am manhandling it!
The second time around gave me a chance to tweak some ingredients. Last time, my filling was asparagus, goat cheese, and hemp milk. It was good but the hemp milk, when cooked, took on a weird greenish-brown. This time I used almond milk, which really made all the difference; it was a great base along with eggs. I also used butternut squash and herbed goat cheese. Goat cheese, btw, is allowed on the Elimination-Challenge diet, and I’m taking full advantage of that.
Oh, and I asked AJ to bring over bacon, to accompany the quiche. Only as he can, he managed to buy something called English bacon which was remarkably like Canadian bacon. It was okay but did not quite whet my taste for the crispy bacon I dreamed about as he made his way over from the store. Ah, AJ wouldn’t be AJ without doing something just a little mindless. And I love him just the same.
