What could be better than a delicious quiche that you can share with everyone, or eat all by yourself? Well, look no further because I have a delicious quiche for you, with a twist!
The recipe came about when I had leftover eggplant and zucchini and noodles. So I thought, what can I make of this? I didn’t feel like stir-frying, or another Asian dish, because we eat those so often already. And then I got the idea, why not make a quiche with this?
That’s how I was able to develop this delicious lunch dish. Luis and my dad really can eat kilos of quiche. They love it so much that it makes me really happy to develop new quiche recipes for them! And I swear, I turn around and whole quiche is gone, haha.
This quiche is really delicious. You can also play with the ingredients: You can, for example, use corn or another type of beans instead of the peas. You can use thicker or thinner noodles. You can also make the marinade spicier, or a bit sweeter if you prefer! Making your own creations is of course the best thing there is, and I encourage you to try it out for yourself at home!
Creative cooking is really something I like to do and that is how I keep creating dishes for you. Continuing to develop myself and trying out new things is really what makes me happy! This quiche that I made like this is one I now have to make 2 or 3 times a month, because the men keep asking for it and I always have the ingredients in my kitchen!
And now it’s your turn to make this quiche, so let’s head into the kitchen!
- 1/2 zucchini, cubed
- 1 aubergine, cubed
- 4 spring onions
- 2 cloves of garlic
- sunflower oil
- 1 can of peas
- 2 tablespoons of sesame oil
- 4 tablespoons of soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger (powder is also ok)
- 1 tablespoon of hoisin sauce, or Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon of agave syrup or honey
- 1 tablespoon of rice vinegar
- 3 tablespoons of sunflower oil
- pepper and salt to taste
- 150 gr of boiled noodles
- 5 eggs
- 60 gr cheese, grated
- 100 ml of milk
Mix all the ingredients for the marinade in a large bowl, taste and adjust the flavor to your liking. Do you want the marinade to be saltier or spicier? The choice is yours! Then mix the zucchini, eggplant and garlic with this marinade and let the vegetables marinate for at least 15 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Cook the noodles of your choice according to package directions, then drain and rinse with cold water. Drain the noodles. Meanwhile, grease a low wide baking dish with butter. Place a large frying pan on the fire and heat some sunflower oil in it. Then add the marinated vegetables and the marinade. Fry these until they are just crispy and then turn off the heat.
Beat the eggs in a bowl and add the milk and grated cheese. Mix all this well together and then add salt and pepper. Then gradually add the cooked noodles, vegetables and peas. Mix this well again and pour the mixture into the oven dish. Make sure that everything is well under the egg. Now put the dish in the oven.
Bake for 30 minutes, until the top starts to brown nicely. It’s true that the top will be convex, so don’t be alarmed. Pierce the top with a knife to see if your quiche is done. If the knife comes out clean and without crumbs, you can take the quiche out of the oven and serve with a delicious fresh salad!
Voilà, a delicious quiche with an Asian twist!
It’s a really delicious way to get rid of vegetables. Just make it a basic quiche and you will always be fine! You can make a delicious fresh green salad with it, or take this quiche with you when you visit! Or you can of course put it on the table when you get visitors yourself, of course!
Cooking with what you have has never been so much fun, especially if you already have all kinds of go-to recipes that you can turn into something special with some creative additions. I think this is the best way to gradually expand your culinary repertoire.
And I think it’s healthy. At least, in my book, vegetables and eggs are quite healthy, but of course it depends on how much you eat, right? And now I really wish you a nice Wednesday and almost weekend! See you soon, friends!
Now I am of course very curious how you use up your vegetables. What do you use them in? Tell me and who knows, you may give me an idea, or you can share your recipe in a new guest blog!
