Tonight, we’re celebrating the Fourth of July early with this delicious, festive quiche. Our eggy filling is made with red onion and purple (also called blue) potato—along with zucchini and fresh basil, for a summery touch. Dollops of white ricotta create fluffy creaminess on top. We’re rounding out this exciting meal with a lemon-dressed arugula and radish salad.

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Small dice the potato. Peel and small dice the onion. Small dice the zucchini. Pick the basil leaves off the stems; discard the stems. Quarter and deseed the lemon. Cut off and discard the ends of the radishes; thinly slice into rounds.

2 Cook the vegetables:

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the potato and onion; season with salt and pepper.

Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes, or until softened. Remove from heat.
