What is a Quiche
A Quiche is a traditional French Savoury Tart made from two elements:
- A Filling made from Eggs and Cream Base, and often mixed with other ingredients like vegetables, herbs and/or cheese.
- A Savoury Pastry Crust, usually Shortcrust Pastry or Puff Pastry. Can sometimes also be crustless!
How do you make a quiche from scratch?
There are SO many ways to make a quiche - whether you want to make it fully from scratch or use pre-made, store-bought elements like the Pastry.
It is completely up to know whether you use a pre-made crust from the store, or make your own. I personally always make my own savoury shortcrust pastry from 4 basic ingredients:
- Plain Flour
- Cold Butter
- Cold Water
Vegetarian Quiche Fillings
The most important ingredients needed to make veggie quiche recipes are obviously the vegetables! With so many options and ingredient combinations to make a healthy quiche, it is time to get creative!
