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
- Whizz 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 case
- If it looks like a bowl of vomit, you’ve got it spot on
- 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 herbs
- Cook in the oven – I put on 170 degrees (fan) for about 40 minutes – or until cooked through
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!
