Summer quiche: We make so many different quiche flavours, that we forget to write them all down for you. From now on we will try.A quiche is always a surprise at the table. However, you really don’t see them very often and that is a shame because it’s a very practical way to empty the fridge or freezer of small scraps. Or in this case, use up the odds and ends of a bunch of colourful vegetables. You can create any sort of quiche you like with a bunch of leftovers! Let’s hope that our summer quiche encourages you to have a go. We have made it even more easy with our recipe for food processor pastry.
