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.

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.

If you're making your own pastry (try this one: try adding 1-2 teaspoons of oregano to the pastry. Tastes great with the veg in this quiche.
