Yummie Summer Quiche

So last night I got a bug in my bum to cook some quiche.
My favorite crust for this type of recipe uses:
1.5 cups of whole wheat flour
1/4 cup corn oil
1/4 cup water
dash of salt.
Mix up flour, salt and corn oil with fork till consistancy of sand. Add water and mix till it starts to come together. Place in the bottom of your pie plate and smoosh it up to look like a pie crust. It will be thicker than a normal pie crust thats what makes it so good :)

Filling:
2 onions
2 cloves garlic
Whatever veggies are in your fridge-we love: spinach, mushrooms, peppers, zucchini, spaghetti squash, broccoli; but basically anything will work.
You can also put in some meat if you would like-sausage, ham, bacon, etc.

I sautee these all in a pan till they are al dente I put in a good amount of pepper here.

Then I mix them with 3 eggs, 1 cup milk (or half and half if you so choose).
I'll also throw in whatever bits and pieces of cheese I have in my fridge adding in some thyme and rosemary.

It then goes in the oven at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until set.
Its soo good :)

I tried this again. I've noticed that it sets up better with either one more egg or less milk than the recipe. Very yummy!
