Instructions

  • 1.Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).

  • 3. Bake the quiche for 35-40 minutes, or until the center is set and the crust is golden brown. Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly.
  • 4. Prepare the Ratatouille: In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced eggplant, zucchini, bell pepper, onion, and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender.
  • 5. Stir in the diced tomatoes and dried thyme. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook for an additional 5-7 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
