I decided to do a recipe today with basil for 2 reasons: 1) I love it, and 2) my container of basil needs to be cut pronto! Basil is so light and just plain delicious, but something that’s often even more delicious is quiche. However, sometimes quiche can be a little heavy for summer, so the mini version are definitely a better option. Need a short cut? (You’re a momma, after all). Try these mini crusts from Clearbrook Farms I found at Sur LaTable (or choose something similar near you). You could even create an equivalent using gluten-free or allergen-free crust!
