update on leeks! eek!

whoops-- i meant to post this a while ago! i also lost this in a wonderful summer storm, so here we go again... here's a few of the dishes i made with those pesky yet tasty leeks :) --

first of all, they definitely lasted quite a while and i made at least four dishes with them.

the first i wanted to try was the quiche, but i only had about 15 minutes to make it before pottery class one night, so i skipped making a crust (definitely time consuming for the gluten-free crustmaker). i was inspired by Susan at FatFree Vegan Kitchen who had a post for a quiche so i designed it after that one. it really did take very little time to make:

first i preheated the oven to 375. i then heated some olive oil and added chopped leeks, then the bottom, tougher stems of asparagus. i sauteed those for a little while, then added the tops and continued to cook until soft. i then added them to 8 beaten eggs and salt, pepper, and italian seasoning. next, i poured the batter into a lightly oiled pie dish and added some of the tops to make a design (see pics below). i baked it for about 15 minutes and it was done! it's probably more of a fritatta than a quiche since it's minus the crust, so breakfast, lunch, dinner... it's all good. i may have added some chopped cilantro as well if i recall correctly.

Pin It Now!


  1. Wow, this sounds delicious and so easy! I guess you could make a crustless quiche like this with any ingredients you feel like? I need to try this. And the asparagus looks so pretty!

  2. hey elizabeth-- yeah, it was so simple to make and you could definitely throw in whatever you want :) i've made it with chicken and carrots and broccoli before as well.

  3. yummy. i missed all this good food while i was gone. COME SEE ME IN NY AND COOK FOR ME.

  4. Quiche and Cucu sabsi are both fun.

  5. good point myk-- i forgot about the good ol' cucu/kookoo! :) thanks!
