- Homestead Quiche - a simple, crustless quiche or flan that can be made with just about anything, so long as you have eggs.
- Garden Salad - a big, mixed salad of lettuce, silverbeet, beetroot leaves, parsley, celery, grated carrot, grated beetroot and whatever else is to hand, straight out of the garden.
- Fresh tomatoes from the greenhouse and sweetcorn straight out of the garden - yum!
- I also made cornbread for the first time - this particular recipe was quite sweet and almost like cake.
Homestead Crustless Quiche
In the particular quiche pictured, I sliced some potatoes and cooked in boiling water until just tender, washed and shredded some beet greens, sliced tomatoes, and sprinkled peas. I would have used about 14 eggs and around a cup of milk for this roasting-dish sized quiche to feed 8.
At other times, I've used only one or two veges - such as leek, or silverbeet and onion. Sometimes I've added some diced bacon or chicken. Occasionally I've stired in some grated cheese to the egg mixture. It's completely flexible. This is a great way to produce a tasty dish using fresh eggs and whatever else you have on hand. It's also a handy way to use up leftovers.
