Some tips around quiche making!

The quiche is certainly one of the most practical recipes when you want to prepare a simple meal, appreciated by all and without having to spend hours in the kitchen. While the quiche is very easy to make, there are however tips and tricks to perfect it.

Tuna, Tomato and Mustard Quiche

Make your homemade quiche dough

For some time, I got into the habit of preparing my homemade dough. The advantage, you control what you eat and so avoid preservatives found in many industrial quiche doughs.

In addition, you can vary the flours and replace part of the flour with wholemeal flour for an even more nutritious result. For example, find my complete dough recipe in my recipe for Mushroom, Feta and Red Onion Quiche. Of course, if you don’t have the time or the ingredients to make your homemade dough, you can buy it ready-made.

Be generous with the seasoning and garnish

Do not hesitate to garnish your quiche with a lot of vegetables, like here tomatoes. Vegetables generally reduce in size when cooked so your quiche might feel flat if you don’t add enough.

Also be generous with the seasoning, especially the herbs and spices: I like to add dry herbs like thyme, oregano, rosemary or savory in my quiches.

Watch your quiche regularly while baking

Each oven is different, some are stronger than others. This is why I always advise to watch your quiche regularly while baking. I also recommend to start the baking in the oven at traditional heat. So the dough will start to cook without browning right away.

Check the quiche after 20 minutes. If the quiche is still very white, you can switch to a convection oven. After 35 minutes you can start to see if the quiche is ready. The quiche is cooked when the center is no longer liquid and begins to color.
