Rated 4 out of 5 by Leelu from Has good potential I often find quiche to be very greasy and heavy, but this recipe is light and the filling turned out fluffy just the way I like. The brown rice crust was also different and I like how the sides turned out crunchy. But the seasoning in this recipe didn't give the filling enough taste. I would still use this recipe again, but modify the seasoning to give the filling more flavor. Overall, I do like this recipe and will use it again with some tweaks (maybe add some ham, use more onion powder and add garlic powder, and season the vegetables before steaming)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carries_Carats from Great flavor profile! I had some leftover brown rice so made a ½ batch in muffin top pans which gave me 4. I reduced the bake time to 10" which was perfect and used the leftover egg mixture to make crustless muffins. I wasn't sure if the recipe REALLY meant 4½t basil so I just used about a tsp of fresh oregano (I read that the oils from fresh herbs are more concentrated due to the Vitamix blades). I did add garlic powder as recommended by another user. I'll definitely make this again! I
