This is an old recipe that we love in this house that I’ve adapted to make in the Thermomix. It makes for a really easy last minute lunch or dinner.
This can be frozen too and thawed for school lunch boxes or work lunches eaten cold or heated.
We serve it with steamed vegetables in w inter or salad in summer.
My Brown Rice Quiche is also delicious!
Hidden Veggie Quiche
A great way to hide some extra veggies. Always a hit at our house for a last minute lunch or dinner.
- 5 slices of shortcut bacon, diced
- 2 small zucchinis, roughly chopped
- 20g spinach, see below note
- 1/2 yellow capsicum, chopped roughly
- 1 onion, peeled and quartered
- 1 clove of garlic, peeled
- 4 large or 5 small eggs
- 1/2 cup of milk
- 1/4 cup of plain flour
- 50g grated cheese (can be more or less)
- Olive oil, drizzle
- Preheat oven to 180 degrees. I use a silicone flan form to cook the quiche in.
- Place onion, garlic and vegetables in bowl. Blitz on speed 8 for 5-6 secs or until desired consistency.
- Add bacon and a drizzle of olive oil to bowl.
- Cook at 100 degrees, 7 minutes, speed one (This step is completely optional. I often skip this to save time and the flavour is still great).
- Add remaining ingredients. Mix on speed 3 until combined.
- Pour mixture into prepared dish or form.
- Bake for 30-40 minutes or until set and a golden brown crust is formed on top.
- Serve with salad and crusty bread.
- Blitzing spinach in a high power processor releases a lot of liquid and colour. To avoid green quiche I recommend just chopping the spinach by hand into "shreds".
- Ham can be used instead of bacon for a more cost effective option.
- Leek and/or spring onion can be used in place of onion.
- Corn kernels are a great addition to this. I purée these if I want them hidden or use as is.
