Ham and Red Pepper Quiche

Total time: 45 minutes
     The ham I use is 'raw' so I sautéed it quickly, while the crust baked.  I lightly sautéed the pepper strips as well.  The rice makes a lovely crust, much healthier than the traditional pastry... and easier too, especially if you cook the rice earlier.  I used Swiss cheese.

We normally have the leftovers, cold, for lunch.
