Such savory goodies enlightens my SH's mood wen he's upset.. Yup.. my FIL was hospitalized and is on dialysis which has put the whole family in down mood.. Now he's fine n hes better.. so is the reliever.. To change the scenario i baked tis partially vegan quiche with some leftover veggies.. 

I took reference of many recipes mainly from here and there.. This is my first attempt and i kind of succeeded and my quiche came perfectly clean out from the tart tin..but i was in a hurry so could not click pics outside off..

The next time i will def replace eggs n cheese .. n go for a complete vegan version.. Served it warm with ice cold cranberry tea.. (ice cold term reminds me of Mr.Nagesh for his comedy in panchathanthiram movie whr he loves the ice cold coffee n i love his acting)
