1 (9 inch) unbaked deep dish pie crust
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup sliced onion
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup chopped zucchini
1 large tomato, sliced
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons dried basil
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese, divided
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Bake pie crust in preheated oven until firm, about 8 minutes. Remove crust from oven and set aside. Reduce oven heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onion, green bell pepper, mushrooms, and zucchini in hot oil until soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove vegetables from skillet and set aside.
Sprinkle tomato slices with flour and basil; cook in the skillet for 1 minute per side.
Whisk eggs, milk, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl.
Spread 1 cup Colby-Monterey Jack cheese in the bottom of pie crust. Layer vegetable mixture over the cheese and top with the tomatoes. Pour egg mixture into pie shell. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup cheese atop the quiche.
Bake in preheated oven until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before serving.
Swiss Chard with Crisp Apples

Calories 80 kcal
Author Susan Voisin
1/4 cup raisins
2 pound bunches swiss chard about 1 pound 12 ounces
1 large onion chopped
2 crisp red apples (such as Honeycrisp) cored and chopped
1 tablespoon soy sauce tamari, or coconut aminos
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Place the raisins in a small bowl and pour enough hot water on them just to barely cover. Set aside.
Cut the stems off of the chard. Trim and discard the bottoms of the stems if they’re dry, and chop the stems into 1/4-inch slices. Set the sliced stems aside. Cut the leaves in half lengthwise and then slice into 1/2-inch strips. Keep the sliced leaves separate from the stems.
Heat a deep, non-stick dutch oven or wok. Add the onions and cook, stirring, until they begin to brown. (If necessary, add water a tablespoon at a time to prevent sticking.) Add the chard stems and apples and cook for another 2 minutes.
Drain the raisins, reserving the water. Add the raisins and the chard leaves to the pan and stir well. Add 1 tablespoon of the raisin water to the pan and cover tightly. Stirring every minute or two, cook until the chard is tender, about 6 minutes. Remove the lid and cook briefly to boil off any excess moisture. Remove from the heat, stir in the soy sauce and apple cider vinegar, and add salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot.

Tomato, Onion and Green Pepper Salad with Shiso
Although this blend of raw tomatoes, paper-thin onion and mild green peppers seems Italian, it’s a common mix for Japanese farm families. Instead of the usual squirt of mayonnaise, author Nancy Singleton Hachisu drizzles on an Asian vinaigrette
1 pound cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
1/4 pound small mild green peppers, such as Italian frying peppers, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced crosswise
1/2 small onion, very thinly sliced
2 tablespoons canola oil, preferably cold-pressed
1 1/2 tablespoons organic soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons brown rice vinegar
6 shiso leaves, thinly sliced
How to Make It
In a large bowl, gently toss the tomatoes, peppers and onion. Drizzle with the oil, soy sauce and vinegar. Scatter the shiso on top and serve right away.
