Ingredients

vegetable oil spray, for the muffin tin
1 cup brown rice 180 g
2 cups chicken broth, low-sodium 500 mL
2/3 cup milk, partly skimmed, 2% 170 mL

2 tsp herbes de Provence 2 g

Before you start

This recipe yields 2 mini-quiches per person.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C/350°F. Spray a muffin pan with a vegetable oil spray. Cook the rice in the broth, about 30 min.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk and milk powder using a fork. Stir in cheese, garlic and herbes de Provence, then mix well.
  3. Spoon the cooked rice into the cups of a muffin pan (fill 6 cavities for 3 servings and 12 cavities for 6 servings). Press the rice lightly to the bottom of each cup, so that it forms a crust. Fill the muffin cups with the egg mixture.
  4. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 25-30 min, until a tooth-pick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Take the pan out of the oven, leave to cool for a few minutes. Serve 2 mini-quiches per person.

I found it very difficult to get the milk powder dissolved, and my quiches ended up with bits that just tasted like milk powder, which I didn't enjoy. Also, the three serving recipe filled twelve muffin cups with a little rice left over, contrary to what the recipe said. And the listed preparation/cooking time is flat out impossible, since the rice needs to cook for at least 30 minutes first, then the assembled quiches need to cook for 25-30 minutes. I found the brown rice actually took more than 30 minutes to cook, which wasn't exactly surprising but it did further increase the time for this recipe.
