Brown Rice Pie Crust

June 24, 2010

Author Notes: Depending on the occasion, I have use a rice crust for my quiche recipes; this posting is an adaptation inspired after reading about them, long ago. I like adding a bit of cheese to the crust, changing the type to compliment my quiche ingredients.

Assemble the ingredients and bake the crust for 5 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Let cool while preparing the filling, if necessary turn up the oven temperature needed to bake the quiche.
