And if you normally use a store-bought pie crust, I highly recommend you try my foolproof quiche crust recipe. You will never go back!

So now, let’s have a look at some original quiche sides from light salads to savory sides for a bigger meal and also sweet sides for brunches!


1. Green salad with vinaigrette

The most French way to eat a quiche is to serve it with a green salad with a homemade vinaigrette. I like to prepare my vinaigrette with Dijon mustard and a good quality olive oil!

2. Tuna and White Bean Salad

This fresh, protein-packed salad is lovely alongside my spring quiche with asparagus, broccoli, and peas. The creaminess from the white beans and the salty tuna pair perfectly.

3. Oriental Carrot Salad

I love this modern carrot salad; sweet carrots paired with chunky chickpeas and cheese. The bright oriental flavors and herbs freshen up the creamy ingredients.

4. Tuna and Tomato Salad

This is the perfect Spanish-inspired summer salad that I can’t get enough of. Try it alongside a veggie-based quiche with similar summery qualities, like this green asparagus and wild garlic quiche.

5. Tomato and Cucumber Salad

The ingredients in this salad are so simple and fresh that it is the perfect side dish to quiche. I love the updated look of the chunky and colorful ingredients. This salad pairs perfectly with pretty much any quiche.

Pretty as a picture, this purple and orange salad with feta cheese is so lovely alongside a homebaked quiche. It is super simple to make and full of wellness-giving ingredients.

7. Roasted Fig and Burrata Salad

This salad contains classic flavors like fresh figs, pomegranates, and creamy burrata cheese. It’s a perfect pairing alongside this cherry tomatoes, feta and wild herbs quiche.

This is an everyday French classic that you have just got to try. The ingredient combination is so satisfying and full of flavor. This salad, paired with a home-baked quiche is the perfect lunch.

9. Chickpea and Broccoli Salad, Tahini Dressing

This is a delicious and satisfying salad to serve with a quiche. It is full of wholesome and healthy ingredients, and the tahini dressing makes it extra special.

10. Easy Fresh Salmon Salad

Here is a protein-filled salad to partner with one of my tomato-based quiches or a veggie-based one like this quiche with green asparagus and goat’s cheese.


11. Healthy Tomato Basil Soup

The classic flavors in this rich tomato soup go really well with any of my quiche recipes. You could even add a simple salad for a lovely trio! Don’t forget to add some crusty bread.

12. French Onion Soup

Let’s talk warm and cozy soup and quiche pairing. Try my authentic French onion soup with a more wintery quiche – this mushroom, feta and red onion quiche is a suggestion.

13. Broccoli, Pea and Ginger Soup

You will love the pop of zing from the ginger in this soup. It really lifts the regular broccoli and pea flavors and is a great addition to the soup. It’s a great any-season soup to serve with a quiche.

14. Easy Cold Cucumber Soup

A summer soup and quiche pairing that dreams are made of. This is lovely with my fresh salmon and leek quiche. This pairing makes an elegant lunch for a special occasion.

15. Vegetarian Lentil Stew

If you want to turn your total meal into a more filling offering, this is the soup to serve with your quiche. This vegetarian Lentil Stew is hearty, wholesome, and loaded with savory taste.


16. Oven Roasted Winter Vegetables

I love to serve a tray of beautiful roasted root vegetables in the winter, with a quiche and soup. So simple and delicious at the same time!

17. Oven Roasted Cabbage with Tahini Sauce

This oven roasted cabbage is a quick and very easy side to whip up and serve together with a quiche. The result is really impressive, considering how easy this is to make.

18. Rainbow Carrots with Thyme and Honey

Of course, I have to have my take on a classic French honey-glazed carrot recipe. Here it is – beautifully glazed in honey and little thyme leaves and gorgeous as a side to your favorite quiche.

19. Parsnip Puree

If you love comforting flavor and texture, try this creamy parsnip puree as a side to quiche. This makes a lovely winter combo.

20. Vegetable Tian

If you know me, by now you will know how much I love making vegetable tian. This pretty vegetable dish is a lovely side to any summery quiche.

21. Ratatouille, traditional recipe

A hearty, healthy, and happy pot of classic French flavors and ingredients. I recommend trying this traditional ratatouille with your favorite vegetarian quiche recipe.

22. Oven Roasted Vegetables with Feta

This is such an easy and healthy side to serve with a slice of quiche. You won’t believe how fresh and simple these oven roasted vegetables with feta recipe is.

23. Grilled Zucchini with Oregano

If you like zucchinis, they’re ideal as an accompaniment to quiche. These grilled zucchini with oregano have a delicious texture and summery flavor.

24. French Green Beans

I like my green beans still a little crunchy and fresh. This gives you a fresh and healthy side dish, perfect with a quiche. The great thing about green beans is you can whip them up in minutes.


25. French Potato Salad (with Dijon vinaigrette)

I love this delicious and healthy version of a potato salad. It’s a little heartier than a simple salad for any type of quiche.

26. Healthy and Crispy French Fries

Who hasn’t thought of simple French fries to go with a quiche? This version is healthier because it’s oven-baked, yet still crispy!

27. Crispy Rosemary Potatoes

And to keep with the baked potato theme, here’s another idea for a potato-based quiche side dish: my rosemary potatoes. Serving these with a quiche turns it into a main dish. Add a salad for some added freshness!


28. Baguette or Bread

Serving a fresh loaf of bread or baguette is a great idea if you are short on time to prepare.

29. Baguette Garlic Bread

If you’re serving a quiche with a simple salad, this garlic bread is a little extra that’s sure to please the whole family!

30. Savory Cake (French cake salé)

For me, it’s the perfect combination for brunch or a buffet with friends: a quiche and a savory cake or cake salé in French. Both served with a salad, you get a hearty, varied and delicious meal!

31. Italian Focaccia with Oregano

Try my easy Italian focaccia as a great way to turn your quiche meal into a heartier offering. Focaccia is fun to make because you can vary the toppings and link a theme with your quiche filling! I love making this a side to my filo tart with summer vegetables.


32. Homemade Hummus without Garlic

I almost always have homemade hummus in my fridge, because it’s the perfect side to a meal like a quiche. This particular recipe is great if you don’t love a lot of garlic.

33. Green Tapenade with Anchovies and Capers

This green tapenade is one of my favorite dips! The slightly salty, umani taste of the olives goes wonderfully with all my more summery quiche recipes.

34. Garlic and Herb butter

Adding a slice of garlic and herb butter is a great way to add richness to your quiche meal. The butter adds extra flavor and elevates the whole eating experience.

35. Lemon butter

With just three ingredients, this lemon butter is perfect for adding an elegant touch to your quiche-based meal. Perfect to accompany a fish-based quiche.

36. Salmon Rillettes

Keeping with the fish theme, these delicious salmon rillettes are perfect with a vegetable quiche (perhaps with asparagus). This combination is perfect for lunch, dinner, or any time of day.


37. Fresh Fruit Salad

A classic fruit salad is the perfect follow-on from a savory quiche. I feel that ending hearty dishes with healthy fruit salad creates balance in the meal.

38. Vanilla Rice Pudding with Rhubarb Compote

This is a delicious winter pudding to end a meal with. If you go for a light quiche and salad combo, you will still have space for a creamy, dream rice pudding.

39. Blueberry Muffins

I love to serve blueberry muffins together with quiche for brunch or breakfast. This pairing means you get to offer guests both sweet and savory elements.

40. Apple, Pear, and Almond Muffins

Apple, pear, and almond are the ultimate sweet French blend of flavors. Serve this with any of my quiche recipes for an authentic French brunch.

41. Cinnamon rolls

And finally, for a cozy blend of flavors, make a batch of my cinnamon rolls to lay out alongside a homemade quiche at your next brunch party. These are so impressive and just melt in your mouth.
