This quiche provençal is one of my favorite variations on quiche. It’s based on the moules provençal at one of my favorite local restaurants. The predominant flavors is red bell pepper, but it also features mushrooms, swiss chard, tangy goat cheese, and tarragon.

The flavors are earthy and wonderful for dinner or for breakfast. I was too tired to make a homemade crust, so I used a store-bought whole wheat one. It was fabulous; I recommend that you do the same.
