New potatoes are also an excellent source of potassium, a mineral that helps regulate blood pressure and support heart health. In addition, they contain vitamin C, which strengthens the immune system and promotes skin health.
The addition of sliced green onions gives the quiche a delicious crunch and a mild onion flavor. Green onions not only improve taste but also provide numerous health benefits.
