(Savoury French Tart)

Jump to recipe ↓

Quiche is a savoury dish in which a tart is filled with custard along with meat, vegetables or cheese. This can be made with different vegetables, seafood or meat that you have on hand. My favourite combo is to make it with frozen spinach and sausages. My kids enjoy it and have spinach without any complaints. However you can add other vegetables like beans, carrots, zucchini, mushrooms etc. Also, instead of sausages you can add shrimp, chicken pieces etc.

Recipe For Quiche

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes
Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • Pie Crust – 1 (9” size – You can make it at home or use store bought one)
  • Eggs – 5
  • Fresh Cream – ½ cup
  • Grated Cheese – ½ cup
  • Frozen Spinach (or Sautéed Spinach) – ½ cup
  • Salt and Crushed Black Pepper – to taste

Method

  1. We need a 9” pie crust. I prefer to make it at home. I have shared the recipe for basic pie crust here. You can also use store bought pie crust.
  2. Spread the pie crust in a tart pan. Press it with your fingers so that it is set in all the edges. Since I did not have a tart pan, I used a pie pan.
