The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.

Real men do make … quiche

So one thing I rarely do is cook. There’s so many other things taking up my time. But fortunately there’s a talented cook in the house.

So then there’s this:


Home made super fast rustic broccoli quiche.

(Obviously too tasty for a whole quiche photo. And too quick for any ‘during’ shots. But I will try and do those next time.)

And then here’s the recipe.

what you will need:

-Ready made puff pastry (also works well with gluten free pastry)
-One whole head of broccoli
-Four reasonably sized eggs
-Onion powder for flavour
-Grated cheese

what to do:

1.Cut broccoli into reasonable chunks.
2. Steam the broccoli until it’s just cooked but still firm.
3. Meanwhile beat eggs with onion powder.
4. Line a 9″ spring form tin with grease proof paper.
5. Then gently drape the pastry over the tin and ease into the corners.
6. Leave the excess hanging over the side for now.
7. Arrange the hot steamed broccoli inside the pastry.
8. Pour in the beaten egg, over the broccoli, and sprinkle grated cheese in top.
9. Lastly fold the pastry over the broccoli.
10. Bake at 180C for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.

We have a fan oven so temperature may vary depending on your oven.

Served in our house with home grown salad, delicious honey, mustard dressing and baked potato.

    Great timing. Do have a broccoli and some eggs in the fridge. Going to give it a go for Sunday lunch. Never tried broccoli in quiche but sounds a cracking idea.

      Brilliant! It’s our favourite. We keep thinking about doing it with something else but the broccoli wins. Though I have to say pan fried Brussels sprouts with onion or shallots work a treat too!

    Mmm! I’m usually a spinach quiche kind of girl, but this looks wonderful!
