Post Flu-Shot Tomato Quiche

So I got a flu shot after work today, which always leaves me feeling a little tired and icky. I came home and had a hurried dinner of cereal and milk* and then biked up to one of the bars in Hopkins for a first date that turned out to be kind of boring. I had a Surly, though, and that was awesome.

After biking home I was tired and still hungry, and I wanted something really easy and quick but delicious and relatively healthy. I had a bunch of fresh tomatoes from my friend Maria's garden that I wanted to use up, so this is what I made. Apologies if it doesn't make sense -- the Surly went straight to my head.

Post Flu-Shot Tomato Quiche

Crust:
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup cold water

Filling:
1/3 cup grated Parmesan and Romano cheese
About 1 cup chopped tomatoes
Salt and pepper to taste

3 eggs
3/4 cup milk

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Blend the flour and salt with a fork and make a well in the center. Vigorously blend the water and oil and pour into the flour and salt mixture. Mix just until dough leaves the sides of the bowl and holds together in a ball. Press into a nine-inch pie pan and blind-bake for ten minutes.

While the crust is baking, chop tomatoes and grate cheese; set aside. Whisk together the eggs and milk.

Remove the crust from the oven and immediately sprinkle the cheese and then the tomatoes evenly over the bottom of the pan. Season generously with salt and pepper. Pour the egg and milk mixture over the tomatoes and cheese.

Bake for 30-40 minutes or until the quiche is set.



*Now I have that song stuck in my head.

for a first date that turned out to be kind of boring.

Maybe you should have taken the list, then.
Maaaaaybe. I actually didn't really want to go (because I found out that he's into the men's rights movement on reddit, which is pretty troubling to me as a feminist and (I like to think) a person of sense), but I felt bad cancelling.

One of these days I will have a date where the thought of discussing the list will be titillating instead of alarming. I hope.
Wait, the men's rights- do I even want to know? Or should I just chalk it up as something else to put on the list of things that make me want to punch and/or yell at people?
I would say the latter. Within maybe five seconds of arriving at the men's rights clusterfuck on reddit I found a commenter ranting about how feminists should STFU about the percentage of women who are sexually assaulted at some point in their lives because OMG, EIGHTY PERCENT OF MEN ARE CIRCUMCISED AT BIRTH.
Ugh. I mean, I have my problems with some feminists I've run into online, but it sounds like these people should be signed up as participants for Taserings Across America 2012.
Oh, but what I should really focus on here: that quiche sounds really good.
the tomato quiche sounds yummy ! perfect for summer's transition to autumn..
It really was! I love fresh produce at this time of year -- everything tastes so good.

Ftr, anything that takes 30-40 minutes to cook is not "quick". :P

Seriously, I give you mad props for making homemade quiche as your quick and easy food...you even made the crust! I would have ordered a pizza. You win.
RRRRROFL okay that is true. I did think of that when I was waiting for it to finish baking.

The funny thing is that the only reason I know how to make a quiche crust is that I have in the past been too disorganized to remember to buy premade ones and too lazy to go to the store to get one, so I was forced to find a recipe and make my own. I swear, the combination of being disorganized and lazy is responsible for 90% of my actual life accomplishments.
I second that... you win. And I am totally saving this recipe for later.
Aw, thanks! I hope you enjoy it. I've used this recipe with different veggies twice now (last time I used green onions and chives) and both times I have been blown away by its deliciousness. And I love how easy the crust is!
