Beet and potato quiche

Today I am going to share with you a simple yet very impressive quiche. It is simply a shell of dough filled with alternating slices of potatoes, beets and cheese, but the play of flavors and textures makes it a rather interesting dish. Plus it looks quite stunning!

I suggest eating this warm, when the cheese is all melty and its flavor is at its most intense. But as all quiches, you can also prepare it ahead of time and eat it cold.

Anyway, hot or cold, I hope you enjoy it!
