Ingredients

I use white and wholemeal flour for the pastry as I find it gives more flavour, but you can use whatever you have in your cupboard at the time. You can see my shortcrust pastry recipe and tips HERE.

Depending on the size of your quiche dish, the ingredients for the filling may need to add extra milk and egg if you haven’t enough mixture to fill it.

Make sure you use the best fresh eggs you can get, ideally organic eggs.

How to make Kale Quiche

  • Preheat the oven to 180° fan oven.
  • For the pastry, add butter and lard to the flour and rub until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add the ground pepper and stock and slowly add in the water until it forms a dough. I prefer to use my electric mixer as there’s less mess.
  • Roll out to about 5mm thick and place in greased quiche dish. Mine is a large dish, so if you have small dishes, it will make 2, but you may need extra filling ingredients.
  • Blind bake for 10 – 15 mins until dry and slightly golden.
  • Mix the eggs with the milk in a bowl and add to the pastry case.
  • Add the seasoning and kale on top and spread out evenly.
  • Top with the grated cheese, paprika and mixed herbs.
  • Bake in the oven for about 35 – 40 mins, depending on the size of your dish. Serve your lovely kale quiche hot or cold.
