Quiche with Wild Rice and Ham


¾ cup water
¼ cup uncooked wild rice
1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust
1 cup cubed cooked ham
1/3 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
¼ cup thinly sliced green onion tops
4 ounces sliced mushrooms
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
½ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
2 cups shredded Swiss cheese


In a small pot, bring the water and wild rice to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 45 minutes. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Bake the pie crust 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Reduce heat to 400 degrees F.  In a bowl, mix the cooked rice, ham, red bell pepper, green onion tops, and mushrooms. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, sour cream, mustard, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle the bottom of the pie crust with 1 cup Swiss cheese. Spread the rice, ham, and vegetable mixture over the cheese, and cover with the egg mixture. Top with remaining Swiss cheese. Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
