Quiche Forestiere (Mushroom Quiche Recipe) Recipe

Quiche is a typical savory French pastry. In case you’ve never had one, it's an open-faced egg and cheese filled savory tart. This particular recipe is for a rustic, mushroom-filled quiche called quiche forestière. It can be served warm or cold and it's perfect for a picnic.

After attending my friend Alexia's wedding in the countryside this weekend, we're back in Paris and spent the day at the Jardin des Tuileries with baby Aria. Later, we headed to the Carousel and she adored riding the  merry-go-round horse. We stopped for lunch at a lovely boulangerie in the 4ème arrondissement on 4, rue du temple. We had an amazing croissant aux amandes (almond croissant), pain au chocolat (chocolate croissant) and quiche.

Quiche Lorraine Recipe Recipe

Quiche Lorraine Recipe

Quiche Lorraine, as its name indicates, is a savory tart that originated in the north-eat region of France, la Lorraine. The word quiche is derived from the word "Küchen", which means "cake" in German. What makes the quiche Lorraine stand out is the addition of bacon or lardons to the traditional quiche ingredients.

I made mine with turkey bacon, herbes de Provence and leeks and prepped the dough the night before. I flavored it with herbes de Provence and caramelized onions. You can prepare both the crust and filling separately in advance and assemble at the last minute for a quick and easy dinner meal. Accompany with a salad, serve the dish on your patio (or anywhere outdoors) and you'll feel as if you're sitting on the terrace of a café in France!

I'm trying to get everyone healthier so I opted for a light meal today. I decided to make a lima beans leek tartelette served with a green salad. Leeks are a nice substitute for onions and lima beans are a great source of protein. They are full of magnesium which helps control hypertension and prevent cardiovascular disease and contain folate which helps your body defend against cancer.
