Broccoli Quiche Rules!
Real men aren’t supposed to eat quiche as you know but my man just adores this one… It’s quick and easy and absolutely delicious. I usually make two and freeze one. You can also play around with the filling – try caramelised onion, or mushrooms – you can use just about anything as a base…
2 cups cooked broccoli roughly broken up (broccoli should not too be too soft or you lose the taste)
50 grams butter
1 Clove of garlic (I grate it for a better taste)
Generous handful of grated cheese
½ tub pure cream (about 100ml)
Salt & pepper to taste
Pinch of nutmeg
1 sheet Butter Puff Pastry
Slice the leek finely and grate the garlic.
Sauté both in the butter until the leek has softened
Tip in the cooked broccoli and sauté for a few minutes in the butter
Season to taste with salt, pepper and nutmeg.
Spray a large Quiche dish lightly with oil
Line it with the puff pastry and trim.
Spoon the broccoli mixture into the dish
Sprinkle with the grated cheese
Beat together the eggs and the cream and pour over the broccoli cheese mixture
Bake at 180c (fan-forced oven) for 40 minutes or until golden brown on top.
