Pretty simple recipe. I used brown rice, sea salt, and a bit of garlic powder for some flavor. Depending on what you plan to use for filling, I'd recommend seasoning up your crust with something that'll accent your filling. This was the first time I ever made a rice quiche crust and was skeptical but ended up pretty pleased.


I love the idea of a healthier and easier quiche crust. I used reg white rice. To get 1 cup I boiled 1 1/3 c water, added 2/3 c raw rice, reduced heat to low, covered and simmered for 25 minutes. Next time I will just use leftover rice. I did not use the butter but I did add some spices. I was worried the rice wouldn't form a crust without egg in it as others I have seen. It stayed together just fine. For the filling I beat together 4 eggs, 1/2 c milk, 1/4 tsp pepper, 2 c broccoli florets, and 1 c ham. I baked this at 375 for 20 mins. Then I added 1 c shredded cheddar, baked another 10 mins, and then broiled on high until golden. The crispy parts of the rice crust became very hard when reheated for leftovers (actually hurt my teeth) so I don't recommend making this with leftovers in mind. I made garlic parmesan toast as a side but I think a spinach salad would be great. I will definitely make this again for an easy clean out the fridge dinner.


I love how the quiche soaked into the rice. This is a fantastic and easy recipe, far simpler and cheaper than regular crusts.
