It's a Mystery**
Recently, I came across some very tall fruiting shrubs on this land. They were just covered in fruit.
Last night, I made Rhonda's Impossible Quiche. This quiche has no crust, which simplifies things. I made a vegetarian version, which turned out wonderfully. I couldn't find hers to link to, so here's my version-
Place the following in a frying pan and cook, then put to one side.
1 tbs olive oil
1 small onion, diced
2-3 garlic cloves, diced
1/2 small sweet red pepper, diced
approx. 1/4 cup mushrooms (I used some I canned)
handful of lambs quarters, chopped
In a mixing bowl, combine
1 cup milk
1/2 cup kefir (hers called for cream)
1/2 cup unbleached white flour
1 cup grated tasty cheese (I used 2/3 Robusto & 1/3 sharp cheddar)
handful of chopped basil- use the herbs you like
salt and pepper to taste
Add the fried vegetables to the egg mixture and pour into a greased quiche dish or shallow pie pan. Cook at 375 degrees until golden brown and set in the middle, approx. 30 mins.
**Note- Thanks to Mrs. Mac's comment, which sent me off on another tangent, I discovered these plants are Vaccinium arboreum aka sparkleberry aka farkleberry- don't you love that name?!http://nearlynativenursery.com/PlantsDetail.cfm?ID=804
