Q is for Quirky Quiche


Since joining Slimmingworld and changing my eating regime one thing I have cut out completely is pastry. As we speak I have a quiche in the oven for my dinner tonight - ham, mushroom, sweetcorn, pepper and spring onion. On Monday I made the most of a cooked tuna steak and used that in a quiche, together with rocket, sweetcorn and red onion. Basic recipe is as follows:-

1 carton fat free cottage cheese
4 eggs - beaten.

Basically mix together the cheese and eggs then add any vegetables of choice. If using frozen veg make sure it is defrosted and drained to remove the excess water. Add any other ingredients ie lean meat, chicken, tuna then put mixture into a flan dish that has been sprayed with frylight. Cook until "set" and golden brown. I LOVE quiche at room temperature, definitely not straight from the oven, however when desperately hungry I can manage it when hot. Serve with salad. Trust me you will never go back to faffing on with any baking blind malarkey!

This is my Q in my ABC food adventure. I knew right from the beginning I would introduce the lovely Quiche for Q!

  4. I make something quite like it. I really don't like the crust and only ate the fillings anyway.
    This must taste so good with your chickens eggs.
    How are your chickens doing after the long winter ?

    cheers, parsnip

    1. Chickens are fantastically lovely AP - can't bring myself to use their eggs in baking - I use them for poaching or boiling - these eggs are from a neighbours chickens. xx

  8. You have certainly made the whole thing look greatly appetising Denise. I shall try this because really I often don't make quiche because I can't be bothered to make the pastry.
