Roasted Vegetable and Gruyere Quiche

Believe it or not this Roasted Vegetable and Gruyere Quiche Recipe is from a supermarket magazine I picked up. It’s a great recipe for a light summer dinner served with a side salad.

Roasted Vegetable and Gruyere Quiche

Roasting the vegetables before using them in the quiche means a little more effort, but it’s well worth it as it really brings out all the sweetness and flavors.

Baking the crust and roasting the veggies a day ahead makes the prep on the day of a snap.
