This recipe made me really nervous. A rice crust? But I love quiche, and I love artichokes. So I figured I give it a shot. Absolutely delicious. The crust is almost an extension of the custard, as opposed to a true crust. There's no crunch, but is very satisfying chewy texture. I live at altitude, and did have to give it about an extra 10 minutes to cook, covering with foil at the end. This recipe will now be part of my regular rotation, and I look forward to playing with other meats and veggies in this recipe.
