Caramelized Onion, Mushroom & Swiss Quiche In a decidedly un- me move, I made scratch pie crust the other night (the real gluten-y kind, true story). And then I used that crust to make this fantastic, fluffy, easy quiche with mushrooms, thyme, Swiss cheese and specifically these caramelized onions. Remove from heat and fold the onions and broccoli into the liquid quiche mixture. Pour the mixture into the prepared cake pan and sprinkle the vegan cheese on top, if using.
