When in doubt, make quiche. Serve with jacket potatoes and salad and everybody's happy!

Quiche is basically a savory tart made with a pastry crust filled with a custard mixture of eggs, cream, and cheese, often accompanied by various ingredients like vegetables, meats, or seafood. It originated in France but has become popular worldwide as a versatile dish suitable for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner. Its rich, creamy texture and anything goes fillings make it a beloved comfort food enjoyed by families (and mums) the world over.

This recipe is pretty much a whatever is in your fridge offering...If you have eggs and a pastry base with some left over cream cheese and few veggies that need using plus some herbs in the garden...voila! is easy. No wheat, farro or spelt grain laying around? Use rice, use lentils, use extra flour. These serve to add some extra oomph to your pastry and a bit of flavour. Totally up to you and your pantry!
