We are going to make the perfect fall quiche. Using seasonal produce in September: leek and pear and combine it with your favourite blue cheese.

It is a healthy version of a traditional quiche as you know that I do not like using heavy cream, so rootsandcook style quiche. The result is as good and it is perfect to enjoy it with some side salad.
