The Weaning Diaries | Tuna and vegetable quiche recipe

This week we’ve been cooking and today’s choice was quiche. I was at my friend’s house earlier in the week and she was saying how much her baby loves quiche, so decided I’d let Austin have a go. We normally spoon feed and I generally give him just finger food like toast and sandwiches alongside, but thought he’d really love this – and he did!

We decided to make tuna and vegetable quiche and it was honestly one of the quickest and easiest things I’ve ever whipped up. I made enough mixture for two quiches and I froze half of the mixture. Here’s how we did it:

  • Make pastry or buy a ready made pastry case (we did the latter)
  • Whisk 3 eggs with 350ml milk. We ran out of milk (oops) so used formula this time
  • Processed with VSCOcamWhizz up a large handful of spinach and add to egg mixture along with a few whole leaves
  • Add 100g full fat cheddar and 1 tin of tuna
  • Chop a stalk of asparagus and an inch of courgette, layer in the bottom of the pastry caseProcessed with VSCOcam
  • If it looks like a bowl of vomit, you’ve got it spot onProcessed with VSCOcam
  • Pour half the mixture into the pastry case on top of courgette and asparagus
  • Add a sprinkle of cheese on top plus a pinch of mixed herbsProcessed with VSCOcam
  • Cook in the oven – I put on 170 degrees (fan) for about 40 minutes – or until cooked through
  • Enjoy!

Processed with VSCOcamAs I said this makes enough for 2 quiches, so I froze the rest of the mixture in a zip lock freezer bag. If you don’t want to do that, just half the mixture recipe.

Austin really enjoyed eating the quiche – it was a total mess but I’m very glad to have made it – he’ll get a piece for lunch or supper each day until it’s gone. I was going to steal some for my own tea then remembered I used formula 😦 #badtimes

Have you made a different kind of quiche or flan that turned out well? I’d love to hear your recipes or see the results if you decide to make this one!

Thanks for reading πŸ™‚

  1. Quiche is definitely a favourite around here, so quick and easy to make. But, I’ll never look at the bowl the same way again – a bowl of vomit – ahhhhh, why did you have to make me think of that! haha!
