Baby Spinach and Herb Feta quiche

quiche2

I love a freshly baked quiche. There is something about the crisp pastry and soft filling the is just so satisfying. And whilst it ticks all the boxes when it comes to comfort eating, when it is served with a beautiful side salad it makes for a light, yet complete meal. The plus side is that it is actually so easy to make. So next time instead of heading down to the shop for a store bought version, try it out for yourself at home. You can also add to the filling, best with this one would be either smoked salmon ribbons or crunchy bits of bacon, so go ahead and experiment, I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Side note on the pastry: If after baking you want the base even crispier, move it closer to the bottom of the oven, and leaving only that element setting on, allow it to bake for a further 5 minutes.
