Lisa Marley’s Delicious Roasted Vegetable Quiche

11TH APRIL 2016
Pastry Chef Lisa Marley is working in partnership with Britannia Living to develop exciting recipes for every month of 2016. April sees Lisa serve up a Roasted Vegetable Quiche - perfect for al fresco spring dining!
 
Quiche is one of my favourite dishes, mainly because of how versatile it is – you can mix and match the ingredients and it’s great for all occasions. 
 
This delicious roasted vegetable quiche is perfect for picnics, barbecues, or for a weekend treat.  You can serve it piping hot for dinner, or cold for lunch the next day.
 
In the video below I’ll talk you through my recipe, but remember, I always encourage my audience to be creative and try different ingredient variations and really make the dish your own.
 
Quiche, like most pastry dishes, is broken down into two parts: the pastry and the filling. But don’t be put off by the idea of making your own quiche – it’s easier than you think.
 
Pastry
People underestimate how simple homemade pastry can be – plus, with homemade pastry you can add your own spices and flavours for that extra pizzaz!
 
For my recipe, just combine rye flour, plain flour, a pinch of salt, olive oil, herbs and hot water. The key is to add the water slowly and stir as you go (you can always add more water but you can’t take it away).
 
Then add a gentle amount of flour to the surface before rolling out the pastry.
*Note* Don’t add too much flour to the work surface the recipe calls for 250 grams of flour for a reason, we don’t want it turning into 300.
 
Now just line your tart tin, add the pastry, and blind bake.
 
Filling
Next comes the fun part. For this recipe I’ve added onions, peppers and courgette but you can get creative and add as many different veggies as you like. 
 
Then gently pour in the seasoned egg and milk mixture and let gravity even out the mixture. I top my quiche off with grated cheddar cheese, but it could be any cheese. You could add goats cheese, feta, or parmesan.
 
And now it’s a case of placing in the oven, and baking until there is a slight wobble in the centre of the quiche. 
 
My delicious roasted vegetable quiche is a really simple dish and you can create in many variations.
