FFWD - Quiche Maraichère
This week, our French Fridays with Dorie assignment was Quiche Maraichère - literally a "market fresh" quiche. This quiche is unusual in that it is mostly vegetables with only minimal custard, and the cheese is on top rather than through the quiche.
The vegetables were leeks, carrots, capsicum and celery, and were finely diced then pan cooked before being placed in a par-baked tart shell and covered with a custard of eggs and cream. Close to the end of baking, the quiche is topped with grated cheddar cheese.
I didn't expect much of this quiche, and before the cheese was added, I thought it looked a little scary. However, once the cheese had melted over the top of the vegetables, which fill the tart shell, the quiche looks amazing, and serves as a flavoursome dinner:
This was another surprise hit for me. To see what the other Doristas thought of this quiche, visit the LYL section of the FFWD website.
