Courgette and Goats Cheese Quiche

Courgette and Goats Cheese Quiche

Its been wet and windy here in Cornwall over the weekend but despite the unseasonal weather my Mother in Laws allotment (just a few yards down the road from us...handily) is still producing bountifully. This week courgettes are the order of the day.

I hadn't made quiche in quite a while so I thought I would pair the courgettes with some soft goats cheese that had been sitting in my fridge for far too long, as well as some spring onions and rosemary (also from the allotment) and the usual eggs and cream in a shortcrust pastry case.

It turned out rather tasty and will be providing my lunch for the next few days. If you have some cherry tomatoes feel free to add them (halved) on top of the quiche before baking.


COURGETTE AND GOATS CHEESE QUICHE

| Serves: 6  | Prep Time:  | Cook Time:   | Total Time:   |


Ingredients: 

  • For the pastry case:
  • 225g Plain Flour
  • 100g Butter
  • 1/2 TSP Salt
  • 3-4 TBSP water
  • Filling:
  • 1 courgette, sliced
  • 3 spring onions, sliced
  • Sprig of Rosemary, needles only
  • 2 eggs
  • 100ml Double Cream
  • 100g Soft Goats Cheese
  • Pinch Nutmeg
  • Salt and Pepper

Instructions:

  • Step 1: Make the pastry by pulsing the flour, salt and butter in a food processor until breadcrumbs form. Add the water a TBSP at a time until the pastry comes together. Wrap in cling film and chill for 30 minutes.
  • Step 2: Preheat the oven to 190c. Roll out pastry on a floured surface and line a 20cm flan tin. Line the pastry with baking paper and fill with baking beans and bake for 15 minutes. Take out of  the oven, remove baking beans and paper and return to the oven for 5 more minutes.
  • Step 3: Turn down the oven to 170c. Fry the courgettes, spring onions and rosemary in a little oil for 5 minutes until softened and then spoon into pastry case.
  • Step 4: Whisk the eggs, cream and nutmeg together in a bowl and season. Pour into pastry case. 
  • Step 5: Crumble the goats cheese on top and bake for 30-35 minutes until golden.
  • Step 6: Serve with a green salad.

  4. I love a homemade quiche. Being so much further north than you, my courgettes are only tiny. But once they start...

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
