So we went to the local farmer today, we do that sometimes as they have a little farm shop with seasonal fruit and veg and fresh eggs, and picked up a bag of veggies. That of course means that we are having a vegetarian dinner tonight 🙂
I love cooking, but I hate making pastry, so lucky for me I had some organic spelt pastry in the fridge – paired with the veg we got that means Veggie Quiche is on the menu. YUM!
Here’s my version of it;
1 pk Pastry (I prefer spelt, but you can use whatever you like as long as it’s not sweet)
1 tbs Olive Oil
1 bunch Swiss Chard, chopped
1 med Zucchini, grated
1 med Carrot, grated
1 med Leek, sliced
1 med Sweet Potato, peeled and cubed
4 lge Eggs
3/4 cup Milk
handful Grated Cheese
1 tsp Sekem Couscous Sahara seasoning ( or any Moroccan type seasoning mix you like)
Salt and Pepper to taste
1. In a large frying pan, heat oil and add your veggies. Cook on a low heat until chard is wilted – approx. 10 mins. Mix in seasoning mix.
2. Place pastry into a greased or lined pie / quiche dish and prick bottom with a fork. Add cooked veg mixture and spread evenly.
3. In a separate container, whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper and pour over veggies.
4. Sprinkle with cheese and bake at 200°C for about 35-45 mins, or until set and golden brown.
