Chef's notes

Quiches are great nutritious and sustaining plates when we set aside crust and bacons. These ingredients are rich with saturated fats and salt without leading us up to satiety. With this healthy version of the leeks and apples quiche, we used nuts and cheese to make a contrast with apple flavor. An intereting mix which gaves good fats, fibers, proteins, vitamins and minerals.
