Broccoli Tomato Quiche

Quich­es are a sta­ple of French every­day cui­sine. While quiche lor­raine is the most well-known quiche, there are many oth­er quich­es that are just as deli­cious, like this broc­coli toma­to quiche. A won­der­ful way to enjoy broc­coli, and a great meal for the entire fam­i­ly!

Quiche Crust

The tra­di­tion­al crust for quich­es is the French sug­ar-free “pâte brisée.” To learn how to make authen­tic pâte brisée, please view the recipe here, as part of my salmon quiche recipe. If you do not have the time to make your own quiche crust, you can sub­sti­tute with a store-bought Amer­i­can sug­ar-free pie crust. How­ev­er, I real­ly rec­om­mend mak­ing the French pâte brisée for an authen­tic quiche.

Utensils

If you do not already have one, you will need a quiche pan. I rec­om­mend get­ting one that has a remov­able bot­tom, which makes it eas­i­er to take the quiche out.

About the broccoli tomato quiche recipe

You can view the orig­i­nal recipe in French here.

I made a few changes to the orig­i­nal recipe. One of the changes was to use half and half instead of liq­uid cream. Cream and/or milk are tra­di­tion­al in French quiche fill­ings, so I thought that half and half, which is a bit of both, would be pre­fect for quiche. In France, we do not have half and half, but we do have more options in terms of light liq­uid creams. Choos­ing half and half meant I could use a fat-free ver­sion, which was lighter than the oth­er whip­ping cream options I found. So I made my quiche with fat-free half and half, and the result is deli­cious and light!

Instruc­tions
