INGREDIENTS:

Master Ingredients

  • 5 Eggs
  • 1 cup Milk

METHOD:

1.  Pre heat oven to 190°C.  

2.  Spray a quiche or baking dish with baking spray.

 

 

3.  In a bowl, lightly whisk eggs.  Add milk, flour, cheese, onion and garlic.  Stir to combine.

 

 

4.  Add chopped spinach, pre cooked kumara & pumpkin, and mixed veges.  Mix until combined well.

 

 

5.  Season with salt and pepper.

6.  Pour into previously greased baking dish.

 

 

7.  Bake in oven for 40 - 45 minutes until golden on top and is springy in the middle to touch.

 

 

8.  Leave to settle in the dish for 5 - 10 minutes before serving.

9.  Serve it hot or cold with a side salad, or cut into thick slices for the lunchbox.  It works perfectly with a little relish on the side ;-)
