In this recipe, we’re adapting the quiche­—a wonderfully versatile, classic tart—to include delicious autumn vegetables. We’re combining eggs with sautéed Brussels sprouts and leek, making a custard-like filling with deeply savory and earthy flavors. On the side, we’re making a salad with crisp, sweet pear (another seasonal favorite) and peppery arugula. Depending on what’s being harvested near you, your pear may be a different color or size from the one pictured, but it can be used in exactly the same way!

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the root end and upper, dark-green leaves of the leek. Halve the leek lengthwise; thoroughly rinse between the layers with cold water, keeping them as intact as possible. Medium dice the leek. Cut off and discard the stem ends of the Brussels sprouts. Pick off and reserve the Brussels sprout leaves until you reach the lighter cores; discard the cores. Peel and mince the shallot. Quarter and deseed the lemon. Crumble the goat cheese. Core and thinly slice the pear; place in a large bowl.

Cook the vegetables:
2 Cook the vegetables:

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium until hot. Add the leek; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 4 minutes, or until softened. Add the Brussels sprouts and 1 tablespoon of water; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the Brussels sprouts are bright green and slightly softened. Remove from heat.

While the vegetables cook, in a small bowl, combine the shallot and the juice of all 4 lemon wedges; season with salt and pepper to taste. Slowly whisk in 2 tablespoons of olive oil until well combined. Set aside. Crack the eggs into a large bowl; beat until smooth. Whisk in the milk and all but a big pinch of the pecorino cheese; season with salt and pepper. Add the cooked vegetables and whisk to thoroughly combine.
