Vegetarian quiche caprese, tasty tomato flavored with some herbs and off course mozzarella and basil. A touch of summer in our winter homes.
Caprese salad, one of my favorite dishes in summer. But though I love it in summer, I don't like it in winter. For me it's a true summer dish. Do you agree?
But there is a solution near! This delicious Caprese quiche. Wonderful for the winter months. The tomatoes are braised, a sauce with melted mozzarella and sprinkled with basil which by heating it smells like never before. And like the salad fits the Summer, so does this quiche fits in the cold winter months.
- tomatoes contain pretty much liquid, let them drain well after getting of the skin by draining them on a towel or paper.
- by tearing the basil leaves instead of cutting you won't get brown edges.
