Spring Herbed Brie Quiche

Spring has sprung finally after that long cold winter and I am wanting to eat fresh and light dishes. Quiche is light tasting but full of wonderful richness too, you only need a small slice to be satisfied and then a nice green simple salad and you have a gorgeous lunch or special dinner.
I makes a brie and herb omelet all the time so that is what inspired me to show you this today. If you don’t like the herbs I have selected, there are lots to choose from or create your own combination. I love tarragon though and feel it is a very underutilized herb.
