It can be prepared in advance and it is easy to make, even though the preparation does take a few hours. Below you will find the recipe for a simple veggie quiche. Of course, you can vary the vegetables you add – let me know in the comments below or on Instagram and Twitter how yours turned out!

Veggie quiche made with carrots, broccoli, zucchini, and mushrooms.

Ingredients Dough

  • 250 g flour (wheat, type 450 is fine)
  • 100 g ice-cold butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons ice water

Making the Dough

  • Mix the flour with the ice-cold butter, the egg, and the salt. Slowly add the ice-water and mix until you have a ball of dough.
  • Tip: I actually cut the butter into small chunks and freeze it for a few hours – it really improves the dough.
  • Let the dough rest in the fridge for about an hour.
