Vegetable Quiche Recipe.



Ingredients:
1-2 shortcrust pastry sheets (depends on the size of your baking dish)
100gr diced ham or bacon (optional)
1 small onion, diced
1 small red capsicum, diced
½ head of fresh broccoli, stems removed
handful of spinach leaves
4 large eggs
¾ cup cooking cream
pinch of salt
pinch of pepper steak seasoning (or just plain pepper)
1 cup shredded cheese (preferably mozzarella)

Method:
1. Preheat your oven to 200°C and lightly grease a round baking dish or quiche tray with butter or coconut oil.
2. Cover the bottom of the baking dish with your short crust pastry (or pastry that you have premade yourself) and bake in the oven for 10-15 mins – this is important.
3. Throw your diced ham or bacon (optional) and diced onion into a large non-stick frying pan (I sprayed my pan with coconut oil first) and cook over a medium heat for 5-10 mins.
4. While these are cooking, finely chop up your capsicum, cut the stems off your broccoli, and wash your spinach leaves.
5. Whisk your eggs, cream, salt and pepper steak seasoning together in a bowl.
6. Once your pastry has finished cooking, remove from the oven and sprinkle a quarter of the shredded cheese over the base of the quiche.  Next, sprinkle all of your cooked ham/bacon and onion over the cheese, then half of your diced capsicum, broccoli and spinach.  Pour half of your egg and cream mixture over these ingredients, then add the rest of your capsicum, broccoli and spinach leaves and pour the remaining egg and cream mixture over the top.  Sprinkle your remaining shredded cheese over the very top of the quiche.
7. Bake in the oven for 40-50 minutes, or until the centre is no longer watery.

Enjoy!
