Use Your Booty: Beet Quiche

I grabbed a wee little bunch o' beets with my last CSA pickup. There were too few to use as a main dish, or even a side. Somewhere in the mists of memory, I remembered reading a recipe for a beet quiche. So that's what I made.

I cooked the beets until tender, sliced up and sautéed the greens and then combined them and a healthy handful of grated parmesan all into a standard quiche recipe. I made two smaller "quichelets" instead of a large one.

Dinner was a quiche served [cold, because it was crazy-hot here] alongside a ginormous salad (made with CSA lettuce). I included herb leaves and chive blossoms too.

This Summer, I am chronicling my first CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) experience. My CSA share is from Arrowhead Farm, a farm based in Newburyport, MA. Each week, I am posting about what was in my share and what I'm doing with it. By way of full disclosure, I won my share through a raffle and am not paying for it. However, Arrowhead did not know I was entered int he raffle, and I received no special consideration because of this blog.

Thanks for the suggestion! I had the same problem--a few beets from my CSA. I used your suggestion and made a quiche! :)
