Roasted Broccolini + White Cheddar Tart

I have been trying hard to waste less food and use items I have on hand to get innovative for meal planning. I have a local Farmer’s Market basket delivered each week and I get a dozen fresh eggs every week. Sometimes we fly through them sometimes we don’t. This week I had lots of eggs so I decided to make a tart (aka quiche) since we had so many eggs. This would be great with chicken added in but I didn’t have any. We love to top ours with a little hot sauce for extra flavor.

We had a meatless Monday and served ours with lima beans, squash, and a capers salad.
