Peter Rabbit; Individual Broccoli Crustless Quiches
By brytontaylor on March 17, 2013
Mr. McGregor was on his hands and knees planting out young cabbages, but he jumped up and ran after Peter, waving a rake and calling out, “Stop thief.”
Peter was most dreadfully frightened; he rushed all over the garden, for he had forgotten the way back to the gate.
He lost one of his shoes among the cabbages, and the other shoe amongst the potatoes.
-Peter Rabbit, Beatrix Potter
Lots of vegetables in Mr. McGregor's garden to choose from... all but my favourites, broccoli and spinach. This quiche recipe is easy to whip up in a rush or on a lazy Sunday morning, and those vegetables can be easily interchanged. Just switch out one cup spinach in place of the one cup broccoli, or add other vegetables if you like. Red peppers/capsicum work well, I just happen to not like red or green peppers cooked, so no point putting them in. Raw's different- sliced and I'll gobble them up.
The best tip I can give for making these, is to use those tart pans that have the removable bottoms and pop them onto a baking tray. I find it lets the excess liquid out when it bakes so you're left with a solid quiche that's easy to pick up with your fingers. I tried a silicone pan at the same time and it's much goopier.
Makes a dozen individual mini quiches
Preheat oven to 170oC.
On the stove, mix together in a frying pan over medium heat,
1 tbsp butter
half a onion finely chopped
1 clove of finely chopped garlic and
1 cup broccoli, chopped into small pieces. Cook, stirring so garlic and onion don't burn, until broccoli is cooked.
In a bowl, beat together
2 eggs and
¾ cup milk, then add in the cooked broccoli mix.
Stir in ¾ cup shredded cheese and salt and pepper to taste
Finally scoop the mixture into the tart pans and bake in the oven for about 10 minutes, or until golden brown on top. Can be eaten hot but as finger food, chill in fridge for several hours before serving.
