What’s for dinner? Mushroom, asparagus and broccoli crustless quiche

If you’re looking for a light dinner, this quiche is healthier than the traditional baked in a buttery pie crust but just as delicious.

Serves 4-8

You’ll need: 2 tbsp butter, plus extra for greasing; 400g mixed cultivated mushrooms, sliced (button, portabellini or portabello); 50g asparagus, sliced; 50g tender stem broccoli, sliced; 12 XL free-range eggs; 1 cup Greek-style plain yoghurt; 1 ½ cups grated hard cheese (mature cheddar, Havarti & boerenkaas work well); 4 spring onions, sliced; 1 tsp mixed dried herbs; salt and pepper, to taste.

How to:

Preheat oven to 165˚C.

Butter and line a 22cm springform pan or tart tin. Heat the butter in a large pan over medium-high heat.

When melted and foamy, add the mushrooms and cook until golden brown. Season.

In a large mixing bowl whisk the eggs and yoghurt together. Add in the cheese, spring onions, herbs and season well.

Place cooked mushrooms, asparagus and broccoli into your prepared tin. Pour over the egg mixture and make sure everything is evenly distributed.

Bake in the oven for about 1 hour until the egg is set.

Allow cooling slightly before removing from the springform tin or slicing straight out of the baking dish. Serve with a crisp green salad on the side.
