We think a quiche is the perfect way to showcase fresh spring produce. This recipe, from the blog Closet Cooking, uses a crust of cooked brown rice. You could also substitute your favorite pie crust recipe, or try one of ours (see Making a Pie Crust).
One of my favorite ways to welcome in Springs fresh produce is with an asparagus quiche. I figured that an asparagus quiche with morel mushrooms and ramps would be tasty indeed. I had been wanting to try a brown rice crust for a quiche for a while now and this seemed like the perfect opportunity. The brown rice crust sounded lighter and healthier than the more standard pie pastry crust. The pictures that I had seen of the brown rice crust always looked nice and golden brown and good.
