Quick Broccoli & blue cheese quiche

This recipe comes from a recipe book called The Green Roasting Tin by Rukmini Iyer, bought for me by my lovely friend Tania. It was the combination of broccoli and blue cheese that spoke to me, and then I was sold on it when I read further and saw it used a ready rolled sheet of puff pastry. It is so quick and easy to make. Its a definite winner on all fronts.

Ingredients: serves 4

  • 320g ready rolled puff pastry
  • 300g broccoli florets, halved
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 125g blue cheese, crumbled
  • 30g walnuts, chopped
  • 100ml single cream
  • 4 eggs
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 clove crushed garlic

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 180C
  • Line a small deep roasting tin with baking paper and cover with the pastry
  • Scatter the broccoli florets, red onion, chilli flakes, walnuts and blue cheese evenly over the pastry
  • Beat the cream, eggs, lemon zest, salt & garlic together. Pour over the broccolli and cheese
  • Bake in the oven for 30 mins
  • Leave to rest for 10 mins before serving.

You could try grated cheddar with some crumbled feta. However, I might also say you would be best just not bothering if you don’t like blue cheese, unless you like to experiment.
