Quick Easy Low Cal Quiche Recipe
Here's my very much loved cookery book - The New of Art of Cooking published by Stork margarine in the 1970s. Everyone taking my O Level cookery course between 1976-1978 at my school had to have a copy and we all seemed to get our recipes for our exam from the book. In the past 40 years this has been my number one cookery book and I know many of the page numbers of my favourite recipes by heart. This doesn't stop me from adapting the recipes to suit what's in my cupboard and the low fat diet I like to follow however, so I tend to use it as a guide more than anything.
Tonight we are having a Quick Easy Low Cal Quiche, which basically means it's a quiche without any pastry. yay! so much easier, speedier and also lighter on the tum (especially with my dreadful pastry making!) Here's the recipe for you to give it a go, it's brill with new potatoes, salad or any kind of grain. We've got a barley, apple and nut salad to go with this tonight.
Low Cal Quiche Recipe:
1 small onion chopped finely 1 sweet red pepper sliced (I like the Palermo Sweet Pointed Peppers from Morrisons) Bowl or small punnet of regular mushrooms Dash of chilli oil or use fry light spray 1/4 pint red top milk (you can use any milk, even single cream if you fancied upping the calories) 2 medium eggs 2oz Feta crumbled or Low fat Cheddar Cheese grated or a mix of both (or other cheese of your choice) Fresh Herbs (I used dill) to your taste Salt & Pepper
7 inch greased and lined flan dish set on a baking tray (in case of spills)
1. Fry the onion, pepper and mushrooms in the oil / spray until soft and golden (if using Fry Light you may need to add a bit of water to cook the vegetables right through, letting this cook off thoroughly) 2. In a bowl beat together the eggs and the milk, add the salt & pepper, the chopped or milled herbs and the cheese 3. Pop the veg in your flan dish, pour over the milk & cheese mixture, then bake at 190c until golden brown and set (check with a knife to see if it is set in the middle). 4. Can be eaten hot of cold
