Lovely. Will definitely be making this again. I didn't blind bake the case. I used gluten free flour to make the pastry and I used cheddar cheese instead. I think you could use any veg that you have left overs. Wonderful reciepe.

Never made quiche before, was always a little worried about making them, but was tempted by is recipe as it helps use up the courgettes and runner beans from the garden. Glad I tried it, I wasn't disappointed, very easy to make and very tasty. The tomatoes and goats cheese compliment the garden veg lovely. Already thinking about making it again.

Yum, very tasty and a great use for your veggies from the garden. I have made with the pastry, but also without so it was more like a frittata.

Cooked this last night for guests and it was a great success. It was the first time I made a quiche, used bought pastry and results were really good. Became a favourtite over one night :)

This was the first quiche I had made. Both my husband and I were pleasantly surprised. I will be making this again, but maybe 6 servings is quite generous. I think I will be serving as an extra for BBQ season!
Really ease to make!

Made this again last night - gorgeous. Added sundried toms and broccoli instead of the recipe veggies.

Just made this for dinner using bits out of my organic veggie box (courgette, pea shoots and runner beans) and served it with a large salad (beetroot, pea shoots, spinach, lettuce, cucumber, homemade croutons and roasted spicy chickpeas). Absolutely delicious. I used a pre-bought pastry crust and swapped the goats cheese for Lancs cheese, and the cherry toms for sundried tomatoes. Loved it, can't wait for the leftovers tomorrow.

I made this to take to a friends for lunch. I mised out the courgette and runner beans and had with peas broccoli and cherry tomatoes instead. Really good...there were no left overs. Looke really good too with the perfect goats cheese circles on top.

Great recipe! Used pre made shortcrust pastry which worked well. Great way of using different vegetable's. Used lancashire cheese, didn't have goat's cheese.

I've been making this regularly since it first appeared in the magazine. As it was an instant hit with the whole family. To stop the bottom going soggy cook it in a metal tart tin on a pre-heated baking sheet (stick a baking sheet in the oven when you switch it on to heat). That was a GF tip which has prooved really useful to me. I used to avoid quiches as they were often soggy bottomed...not any more! Thankyou GF!

This was a real let-down :(
The quiche looks delicious in the picture but when I made it the pastry got very soggy and the flavours did not come out as I expected them to. Bland and boring.

never thought flour and 300ml of milk would word but stuck to the recipe and will defiantly do this again. Even my boy who hates quiche liked it. Thank you very much

Lovely and such an original idea for a quiche filling. Didn't have a 24cm quiche tin, so used a 20cm deep sandwich tin. Also used low fat creme fraish instead of milk as I had a tub that needed to be used up.
