Would this work?

bxgirl Jan 22, 2008 06:45 AM

I am having guests for dinner, who are vegetarians. I have already made lentil soup (from the NYTimes, delicious!!) and am plannig to make a quiche and a big salad. Should I make two different quiches (perhaps one plain and one spinach?) or would one quiche and a frittata work?
Any thoughts and the quiche and frittata combo would be welcome. Sometimes it sounds OK, and sometimes I think it's weird. Also, any other suggestions would be welcome.

    Personally, I would go for both. Show off your cooking skills and impress the guests. Spinach, Garlic, and Feta always a favorite combo of mine, Mushrooms add a nice flavor also.

      Especially if you can brown crimini mushrooms, just quarter them and turn the heat on high. Cast Iron grill works great but it can be done in fry pan also.

      Grilled Leeks, spinach, artichoke, scallions, garlic, asparagus and tomatoes all are nice in the veggie quiche.I like to use a nice olive oil too...

      Quiche AND frittata sounds a little too eggy. I would sub an interesting green, such as rapini, and be sure to include a crusty loaf of bread.

        I'd choose either frittata or quiche. And don't bother making two different kinds - just make the one you like best. Buy some good bread to go with everything and make sure there's dessert. That's all you need to do.

          I'd go with one or the other, too, probably the quiche because it can be in the oven and finished by the time guests arrive. And, great idea on the crusty bread.

            I agree with the others....do one or the other. Both is overkill. Love the idea re: big salad and crusty bread. Sounds like a perfect meal.

            Are you sure they eat eggs?
            How about a salad with a variety of vegetables..... and crusty bread.

              Thank you all for your input. I think I will stick with just quiche (which was my gut feeling from the start) and the lentil soup and a salad. By the way, I always did plan to serve a crusty bread, but just didn't include it in the original post.
              Thanks again for helping me decide, and confirming what I originally thought would work.I just needed that extra confidence.
