Quiche and salad can be a very nutritious and handy dinner. Though quiche can traditionally be very calorie heavy so making your own seems like a good option and also one you can put in a good few vegetables into. I’ve tried making my own pastry but haven’t perfected it yet. I like to use the gluten free Roll it pastry.
It’s easy to work with. Just let it defrost at room temperature for about 1.5hrs and then roll it out evenly and put into your quiche tin. For the centre of the quiche, I use creme fraiche instead of cream and I add in some water too, 3 eggs and then whatever veg I’m using. My go to is cooked ham, broccoli and red onion as it’s the one the 6 year old will eat!! I’ve also tried sundried tomato, leeks and grated carrot and courgette. You can experiment and you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Once you put the mixture into the quiche base/pastry, then sprinkle with grated cheese, I used red cheddar and mozzarella. Bake in the oven for approx 30mins and voila, delicious homemade quiche. Serve with a salad.
Roll it are available in Supervalu and some independent stores. See site for full list of stockists.
