About the recipe for Vegetarian Quiche with Rocket and Parmesan

Everyone loves quiche. It is easy to prepare, it looks good, it can be served as an entree or main course for breakfast, lunch or dinner. My recipe for Quiche is very simple considering that those who have adopted a vegetarian lifestyle can do it. You only need one reduced-fat shortcrust pastry (softened), Rocket leaves, grated Parmesan cheese, diced onion, eggs and skim milk. Also, this recipe can be made gluten-free by using a gluten-free pastry instead of the shortcrust pastry. If you do not want to use shortcrust pastry, you can make the dough at home. Dough without egg is extremely simple to make: In the 250 grams of flour add butter (which you previously allowed to reach room temperature), salt and mix the dough. As the dough forms, add 2-3 tablespoons of cold water. Then, until you prepare the filling, you can leave the dough for refrigeration.



Can I add more ingredients for this vegetarian Quiche?

Of course. The quiche is very versatile and can have a lot of ingredients if you wish to prepare with more filling. For example, you can add extra veggies like asparagus, mushrooms, spinach, broccoli, dill, peas, leeks, or cherry tomatoes. You can also change the cheese filling and add or substitute with Parmigiano, mozzarella, goat cheese, gorgonzola, cheddar, or gouda.



I am not a vegetarian, what meat can I use in Quiche?

If you’re not a vegetarian and want to make it a pizza-like quiche, you can add bacon, ham, any poultry meat, beef, or sausage. Adding meat, you’ll change the taste dramatically (not worse or better, just changed taste) and the quiche will resemble pizza… The American one, not Italian as flavor.



Can I cook quiche ahead of time?

Not really I’ll say. For making it ahead of timeyou still need to bake it and then chill the quiche, then reheat it the next day or when you want to eat it. I also recommend cutting the quiche into wedges while it’s chilled because it’ll separate into slices more easily once you reheat it. Therefore, a better question is: can I refrigerate the quiche? And the answer would be: YES, you can! Cooked quiche can be refrigerated for up to three days.



How do you keep a quiche crust from getting soggy?

A good answer is already on the internet:

TheKitchn.com said: “Blind Bake. The most common way to ward off a soggy pie crust is by a process called blind baking. Blind baking means you pre-bake the crust (sometimes covered with parchment or foil and weighed down with pie weights to prevent the crust from bubbling up) so that it sets and crisps up before you add any wet filling”.



How long should quiche cool before cutting?

To serve your quiche warm, slice it after 10-15 minutes after taking out from the oven. The longer you let the quiche cool, the more your filling will set, and the cleaner your slices will be. If you want to serve at room temperature, let it cool for at least 50-60 minutes and then partition it.



What goes well with Vegetarian Quiche with Rocket and Parmesan

Serve with your favorite salad, but make sure to include a protein source and at least 3 different vegetables. Choosing the right salad will make the difference between very good and awesome!
