ffwD: Quiche Maraîchère


Earlier this week, I started working at a new law firm. The only downside to this new firm’s location is that it’s extremely far from the grocery store I normally shopped at during my lunchbreaks with my old law firm. This change meant that getting all the veggies for this week’s assignment before Friday was next to impossible and had to be put off until Saturday. Luckily, I found out that the grocery store chain has a location closer to my apartment, so making the trek on Saturday morning for the red bell pepper, leeks, celery, and carrots turned out to be a fairly quick excursion.

Making this quiche was extremely easy because I already had a whole wheat version of Dorie Greenspan’s tart dough in the freezer! This meant the only prep that needed to be done was the chopping of all the veggies. Too bad I hadn’t planned a trip to the grocery store sooner, or I would’ve been able to enjoy this quiche during the week instead of grabbing salads every night! I’ll definitely be making this again.

This quiche maraîchère was made for French Fridays with Dorie, a group of bloggers who are cooking their way through Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table: More Than 300 Recipes from My Home to Yours.

    Congrats on your new job. I am thinking the track up to the market is worth it if you can enjoy a lovely quiche like this on Saturday midmorning’s.

    Hope that the rest of your experience with the new law firm will be positive! I know exactly what you mean about losing good lunch places though… I shifted workplaces two years ago and felt sad that my favourite bakery was now an hour away! The quiche looks delish x

    Congratulations on your new job!

    And I just have to ask…do you made the dough from scratch or did you buy it at the store and keep it frozen?

    Looks delicious!

    Next time (and, there will be because I liked the quiche), I am going to try the whole wheat tart dough. a couple of you used it this week and it sounds good. Good luck at your new job.

    Hope the new job is going well. Always a bit of adjustment as you figure out the new routine and all. Sounds like it was the perfect time to have had an extra bit of pastry in the freezer, just waiting to be whipped out.

    We live just on the edge of the Marais Poitevin, which is where the Maraichere farmers come from. The Marais was reclaimed from the sea in the 14th & 15th C. The soil is the old seabed and is full of nutrients so very good vegetables are grown by the Maraicheres
