After reading the reviews, I made a few changes to the recipe. I shredded the carrots in the food processor, and used another attatchment to break up the cashews into smaller pieces. With the previous comments on the carrots and nuts settling to the bottom, I think that might solve part of the issue. Mine was loaded from top to bottom. I skipped the honey completely and added more egg (I never measure my quiche mix. It's just habit). I tossed the carrots and nuts with the cheese before filling with the egg mixture. Since I had enough to fill 2-3 shells, I added spinach to one shell. Fantastic. great idea on flavors--the technique just needed a litle tweaking.

I did tweak this one. I took everyone's advice... Cut back on the butter, only 1/4 Honey, cut up the nuts & carrots more so they didn't sink to the bottom & I tossed in a dash of garlic powder & chopped a small 1/4 onion -Onion in the carrot mixture & garlic went in the egg... This is great! It was a hit & fun to hear my son tell me how he was so surprised that it wasn't awful like most other quiche recipes! lol (He normally doesn't care for Quiche!)

Simply nice, so very, very nice. I loved it and thought a nice salad would have been so nice with this nice quiche. But alas, only crude cupboard items were at hand - what a pity!
