Quiches and pastries

Celebrate the best of summer and spring produce by turning them into tasty quiches and pastries. These recipes are packed full of delicious seasonal vegetables and are perfect for effortless family dishes.

If you're looking for more reasons to love quiches, here are some additional points to consider:

  • Quiche is a great way to enjoy eating more eggs. Eggs are a source of high-quality protein helping you feel fuller for longer and contain vitamins and minerals including iron, zinc, folate and vitamin B12.

  • Quiches are a tasty way to use up leftover vegetables. Enjoy the fresh produce available in spring including asparagus, peas, spinach, and fresh herbs. You can enjoy quiche hot or cold and with a side salad.

  • Get creative with flavour combinations. Try replacing the pasty base with brown rice and chives, or make an upside-down quiche. You can also sprinkle homemade breadcrumbs over the top for a crispy topping.
  • Quiches can be a great option for meal prep. Make a big batch on the weekend and enjoy it for breakfast, lunch or dinner throughout the week. They're easy to reheat and can be a filling and nutritious meal on-the-go.
  • Quiches are versatile and can be adapted to suit different dietary needs. You can make them vegetarian or add in meat such as ham or bacon. You can also use gluten-free pastry or replace the pastry altogether and opt for a crustless quiche.
