Veggie Quiche..


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 ūüôā

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 Рapprox. 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¬įC for about 35-45 mins, or until set and golden brown.
