=====


  • Dish name: Sun-dried Tomato and Goat Cheese Quiche

  • Cuisine: Mediterranean-inspired

  • Preparation time: 15 minutes, plus chilling

  • Cooking time: 35-40 minutes

  • Yield: Serves 6


Ingredients:


  • 1 pie pastry crust (9-inch)

  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, drained and chopped

  • 4 ounces goat cheese, crumbled

  • 3 large eggs

  • 1 cup heavy cream or milk

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • Optional: Fresh basil leaves or spinach for added flavor and color


Instructions:


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

  2. Press the pie crust into a 9-inch quiche or tart pan. Chill in the refrigerator.

  3. Scatter the crumbled goat cheese and sun-dried tomatoes evenly over the crust.

  4. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, salt, and pepper to form your custard.

  5. Gently pour the custard mixture over the sun-dried tomatoes and goat cheese in the crust.

  6. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the custard is set and the top is lightly browned.

  7. Let the quiche cool for a few minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh basil or spinach if desired.


Tips and Tricks:


  • Tomato Prep: Pat the sun-dried tomatoes dry after draining to remove excess oil, which can make the quiche greasy.

  • Crust: For a flakier crust, blind bake it for 10 minutes before adding the filling.

  • Goat Cheese: Let your goat cheese come to room temperature for easier crumbling.

  • Herbs: Fresh herbs add a burst of flavor; consider using basil, thyme, or oregano.

  • Custard: For a lighter quiche, you can replace the heavy cream with half-and-half or whole milk.

  • Baking: The quiche is done when the edges are set but the center still wobbles slightly.

  • Cooling: Allow the quiche to cool for a bit after baking for easier slicing.

  • Serving: This quiche can be enjoyed hot or at room temperature. Try serving it with a mixed greens salad for a light meal.





Mastering the Sun-dried Tomato and Goat Cheese Quiche can be a breeze with these helpful tips, helping you to present a quiche that's not only delectable but also a feast for the eyes. Enjoy the robust flavors that each slice has to offer!
