Ingredients:  
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed OR 1 frozen pie shell, thawed
6 brussells sprouts, sliced
1 c. roasted/salted cashews, chopped
1 c. shredded or matchstick carrots

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Heat oil in skillet, then saute brussells sprouts, cashews, carrots, and garlic until slightly golden and tender. Meanwhile, whisk together eggs and milk, then add salt, pepper, and nutmeg to taste. Remove vegetable mixture from heat and stir in scallions.

If using puff pastry, line a quiche pan or pie pan with pastry sheet, letting corners hang over. Use a fork to poke holes in the bottom of pastry sheet or pie shell. Sprinkle a thin layer of shredded cheddar into bottom of crust, then add saute'd vegetable mixture. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top. Pour egg mixture over vegetable mixture. If using puff pastry, fold corners over filling. Lightly cover any exposed pastry or pie crust with tin foil strips to avoid over-browning during baking. Remove tin foil after about 30 minutes. Bake 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Personal Notes:
I serve this quiche at my Badass Brunch every month, and it's also a hit with my coworkers at the coffee shop. It's easy enough to throw together and toss in the oven the night before, then just reheat individual servings in the morning. Since it's vegetarian AND delicious, it's a big crowd-pleaser among my friends.
