Fresh corn, fresh herbs, shallots, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, swiss cheese, eggs and cream equals one delicious quiche! A vegetarian's delight, and a delight for the rest of us as well. This is my own original recipe, inspired by the bounty of our garden, which my husband so lovingly and diligently tends.
