I’m often asked for easy lunch recipes which don’t constitute soup or a salad so today I thought I would share one of my favs. This basis of this quiche recipe is an old favourite in our house and my family have been making it for years. You can add almost anything to it you fancy and you end up with the most lovely, healthy and filling lunch from it. Depending on how I am using my points for the day I would have either a quarter of the quiche with a large side salad or half the quiche with a small side salad. You really can add anything you fancy to this. I’ve added mushrooms, spinach etc and it always comes out lovely!
One quiche is 8sp. This works out at 2sp per quarter of quiche or 4sp for half (Flex)
250g tub fat free quark
Small tin of tuna in brine, drained (130g)
2 tomatoes, sliced
Half a red onion, diced
1 pepper, diced
1 tsp green pesto
Salt and pepper
40g low fat mature cheddar, grated
Pre heat the oven to 180c. Pop the eggs into a large bowl and beat. Add the quark and beat with the eggs until you have a nice smooth batter. Add all the other ingredients (reserving a few slices of tomatoes for decoration), season and combine well. Spray a quiche tin with 1kal and pour in the quiche mixture. Top with the sliced tomatoes and sprinkle on the cheese. Pop in the oven for 25-30 minutes until risen and golden.
Serve with a nice side salad!
