The recipe for Grandma’s corn quiche has long been a family treasure, but your attempts at replicating the savory pie have been dismal, to say the least. With a simple few tweaks, you can make it easier—and more delicious. Teff flour gives the crust a nutty taste that pairs well with the sweet, creamy corn filling. Add green pepper, onion, tomatoes and smidgen of hot pepper sauce to liven up the flavor. Don’t worry, Grams won’t mind that you’ve created a new tradition for generations to come.
