Chard, Pork and Chevre Quiche
Cabbage Salad

Cooking time: 60 minutes for menu          Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

      Once again, quiche with a brown rice crust.  Even though the chard was cooked it still floated to the top.  It's not as pretty as some, but great taste and perfect way to use leftover pork or chicken.  If you have any yogurt left after making the cabbage salad you can substitute it for some of the milk.  

Chard, Pork, Goat Cheese and Mushroom Quiche

Total time: 60 minutes
   The chard is quickly sautéed, mainly to help it fit into the quiche dish.  You can use sautéed chicken breasts, leftover pork; chevre or Brie.  This is a very flexible recipe.

 Instructions:Chard and Mushroom Quiche

Note: When baking quiches or tarts, I put the dish on a sturdy baking tray, before pouring in the egg mixture, for easier handling. The dish can get very full.

Creamy Cabbage Salad

Total time: 10 minutes 
    I always think of cabbage salad as summer picnic food.  I am trying to expand my horizons.  Plus, when eating seasonally, there are not a lot of salad choices in winter.  This is a simple, yogurt-based dressing rather than the usual mayonnaise base.  The carrot is optional, but I love the color!
