Quiche is making a comeback folks! Kate’s family loves this creamy, colourful quiche as a hot dinner or as a wonderful packed lunch.

🍴 Serves: 6
🕒 Prep: 30 mins   Cook : 45 mins

Ingredients

  • 1.5 sheets puff pastry (see notes for other options)
  • 1/2 head cauliflower
  • 1 head broccoli
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • pinch of turmeric (optional)
  • 2.5 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup grated cheese (a mix of mozzarella, tasty and parmesan cheese is ideal)
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • extra cheese to sprinkle

 

Directions

  1. Preheat a fan-forced oven to 180 degrees
  2. Cook pastry in an oven proof dish for 10 mins
  3. Steam broccoli and cauliflower
  4. To make cheese sauce: melt butter in pan on medium heat
  5. Add flour, stirring constantly
  6. Add milk and stir constantly with a whisk until there are no lumps
  7. Stir in grated cheese (make sure you use a wooden spoon)
  8. Leave mixture to thicken, stirring occasionally (should only take a few minutes – if milk starts to boil, turn down heat)
  9. Add steamed veggies to semi-cooked pastry
  10. To make egg mix: beat eggs and flour in a separate bowl
  11. Top steamed vegetables with beaten egg mix
  12. Top with cheese sauce and sprinkle extra cheese
  13. Bake for 45 mins

Notes

Top with your favourite fresh herbs and serve with relish, a nice fresh salad or roasted veggies!

Option to omit puff pastry and use mountain bread wraps. You could even go crustless and make this a frittata.

Delicious hot or at room temperature.

Refrigerate to keep (if there’s any left!) for up to 5 days.
