Description

A delicious and healthy quiche that will become a family favourite. Perfect for lunch, dinner or just to have to hand in the freezer.


We are trying to get more Omega 3 in our diet at the moment so I created this dish as an easy option for lunch or dinner. It's the perfect dish to have to hand in the freezer! Omega 3 is so important for kids as they play a key role in growth and development and have numerous health benefits. Lucky for us, both our kids love fish so this quiche was a winner in our house.


The pastry is not a roll out pastry. You will need to press this one into the pan, but make sure you don't end up with really thick pastry around the edges. Use your fingers to spread it up the sides. The pastry mix is very greasy from the butter and once it's baked you will see the butter bubbling on top. Please don't be put off by this, the bubbles will dry up as the pastry cools. The end result is not overly greasy at all.


The filling fits perfectly in my quiche tin (25cm). If yours is bigger, you can add another egg.


Enjoy this quiche with a fresh salad on the side.
