Quiche with brown rice crust

I love the idea of this different approach to quiche: replacing a pastry crust with a rice crust.


Brown Rice Crust

However, getting the taste and textures right for my coeliac teenager is a bit of a process.  While KJ ate the quiche made with the brown rice crust, I think he would like it even better if I used white rice.

NB I made this again using white rice which I really enjoyed.  My teenage taste tester decided that he prefers Rice Quiches with the rice on the inside and not on the outside.
