1 cup long grain rice
2 tsp. unrefined oil
3 onions (you may use more)
1 cup shredded cheese, Cheddar or other light cheese (you may substitute with rice or soy cheese)
½ cup milk or milk substitute
Salt and pepper
Optional: add any other cooked vegetables, fresh herbs or meats you would like in your quiche, e.g. mushrooms, red peppers, sun dried tomatoes, broccoli, spinach, ham, bacon, chicken, smoked turkey etc.
Cook rice according to the instructions on the package. Beat 2 eggs, ½ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper together in a bowl. Stir egg mixture into cooked rice. Press into bottom and up the sides of a greased 9” pie plate, stopping ¼” from the top. Bake on bottom oven rack for 15 minutes at 350º F. In a skillet, heat oil at medium-high heat. Cook onions, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and cook for another 10 minutes until onions are golden and very soft. If using additional vegetables and/or meats, add them at this point. In a bowl, whisk together 5 eggs, cheese, milk and ¼ tsp. each of salt and pepper. Stir in onions/ veggies/meat and pour into crust. Bake on bottom oven rack at 350º F for approximately 35 minutes or until golden.
