So-simple light quiche


Serves 6


  • Cooking spray
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ an onion, finely chopped
  • 100g mushrooms, finely chopped
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • 180g Cheddar, grated
  • 60g self-raising flour
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 5 sun-dried tomatoes, drained and finely chopped
  • 4 large eggs
  • 350ml milk

To serve: Mixed leaves


1 Preheat the oven to 180°C/160˚C fan/gas mark 4. Lightly coat a 23cm pie dish with cooking spray.

2 Heat the oil in a pan over a medium-high heat and cook the onion for 3-4 minutes. Add the mushrooms and thyme and cook for 3-4 minutes longer, then transfer to a large bowl and allow to cool.

3 When the onion mixture has cooled, add the Cheddar, flour and some salt and pepper. Spread this mixture over the base of the prepared pie dish. Scatter over the chopped sun-dried tomatoes.

4 In a jug, whisk together the eggs and milk. Pour over the onion mixture.

5 Cook for 30-35 minutes or until puffed and golden. Allow the quiche to cool completely, then slice into wedges and wrap individually. Pack with mixed leaves to serve.
