This gluten-free quiche has a rice crust made from boiled rice, egg white and cheese. By blind baking the crust, the rice holds together and is wonderfully crispy on the outside. This unique quiche is a great way to give leftover rice a new lease of life and to showcase various seasonal vegetables.

Add the squash and thyme, cook for approx. 2 mins. Add the kale, allow to wilt, then season. Spread the vegetables on top of the rice crust.
