The hearty quiche­—an open-faced tart with a savory, custardy filling—is one of our favorite ways to show off stunning seasonal produce. In this recipe, we’re using earthy Swiss chard and cremini mushrooms to make a pair of elegant winter quiches. Gruyere cheese provides a nutty counterpoint to the flavorful vegetables, while a lemony arugula salad perfectly cuts the quiches’ richness.
