Veggie Heaven

I think I am in Veggie Heaven,when I go out into the garden
and find my efforts have been rewarded with a basket full of goodness

Today is a little cooler and I went out to pick a few cherry toms
An hour and a half later and 2 large tub fulls of rubbish ( I cleared away all the dead bits)

I came in with all of this.

Cucumbers, beans,tomatoes,basil,silver beet and banana capsicum

Now,what to do with it all 
I hate putting it into the fridge,
so I sliced up the beans and tossed them into the frypan
with a few halved cherry tomatoes, a few basil leaves and some olive oil 
and stir fried them just a little so they were still crispy.

Then I made a lovely wholemeal quiche with the silver beet
I caramelise some sliced red onions with brown sugar,a little oil and butter
Spread them over the pastry case.
Sprinkle over some grated cheese and pile on the silver beet
Whisk together 4 eggs and a good dollop of plain yoghurt,or
if you want to indulge,cream and pour over the silver beet
Top with some more cheese
Pop into a moderate oven on a baking tray (to crisp the bottom)
until golden and set

I made a nice salad for lunch out of what was left of the veggies

Magnificent! I must make more quiches.
This time of year is great for garden goodies. Although it has been so hot I am actually looking forward to autumn.

I feel healthier just looking at this post :) My whole family loves vegetables--can't wait until my husbands garden gets going again.

Perfect! I love a little meal like this! How gratifying to gather from your own garden. I love just popping down a few warm tomatoes right from the garden. So much flavor.

What a gorgeous looking quiche!

I think that your basket full of vegies looks much like the one I bring into my house. I love what you did with it. The quiche and stir fry look very yummy.
thank you for giving me some great ideas.

Okay, Jeanetteann, I'm thinking your next book is going to be a cookbook. That quiche looks, and sounds, delicious. And those veggies look so good. Nicely done.
