So I came across this magnificent looking recipe the other day, and decided that I would have to try and make that in the very near future. It's from Easy Peasy Organic's blog, and you can find a lot of genius recipes there!
First of all I tried to make some pesto swirls today, but the recipe I found wasn't the best, and so they turned out a little too crunchy for my liking. They looked really fancy though, and I think I will try and improve the dough so they get a little bit softer,
Quiche is a great dish to serve for dinner or perhaps even lunch now when it's getting so warm outside. It's light and you can serve it with whatever you want on the side, or perhaps as part of a little buffet. This number is only around 800 calories in total, meaning that I could easily scoff down the whole thing without even feeling bad! Getting iron from the spinach, as well as plenty of protein from the eggs! I think by the end of today... there wont be a lot left of that quiche, mmmm ^ ^
Crustless Super Quiche
(Serves 4, about 200 calories each)
2 spring onions, chopped
150g spinach, or other greens
2 tbsp wholemeal flour (or rice flour for a gluten free quiche)
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
About 50g strong cheese, crumbled or chopped
2 large tomatoes, thinly sliced (I only needed one)
- Pre-heat the oven to 180°C, and grease a pie dish.
- Have spring onions, spinach, eggs, milk, flour, and spices in a blender until you have a smooth mixture with only some bits in it. Pour it into the pie dish, top with the cheese and sliced tomatoes. Bake for about 30-40 minutes until set, and cool for about 5-10 minutes, and sprinkle over a little salt and black pepper before serving.
Bear in mind the first slice can always be a bit tricky to get out of the tin
You can serve this with some bread, salad and sauces if you want!
Here are the pesto swirls with home made pesto sauce! If you have a good bread recipe, why not use it to make these? Perfect to accompany quiches, soups or just have as a snack on the go!
