Chard & Mushroom Quiche

This crustless quiche is the perfect thing to make for your gluten free friends when you are having them over for Sunday brunch. Serve with a glass of Taranta's Sparkling White wine to complete the meal, and maybe add a couple splashes of peach nectar if you're feeling a mimosa.
