Serves 8-10
Takes 1 hr 50 mins (prep – 30 mins, cooling of dough – 30 mins, baking – 50 mins)


Quiche crust
100 g butter, cold
1 egg yolk
1 cup plain flour
1/2 tsp turmeric
pinch salt
1 tbsp cold water
4 medium tomatoes (seeds removed)
1 small courgette (zucchini), baked
1 small head of cauliflower, cooked or baked
200 g feta cheese
1/2 bunch fresh basil
1/2 bunch fresh dill
Egg mixture
4 large eggs
350 ml full-fat sour cream
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 1/2 tsp salt
peppers blend to taste


To prepare the quiche crust: in a medium bowl, lightly whisk the sifted flour, turmeric and salt. Add the egg yolk and rub the cubed cold butter into the flour mixture until crumbly. Add 1 tbsp of cold water. Work the mixture together with your hands into a smooth ball of dough. The dough should be soft and not sticky. Add a little bit more water if it’s too dry, or more flour if it’s too sticky. Cover with plastic wrap and put in the fridge for 1 hour, or freezer for 30 minutes (you can also make the dough in advance).

Meanwhile, chop and deseed the tomatoes, making sure to remove all moisture. Divide the cauliflower head into florets. Chop the courgette (zucchini), basil and dill.

Whisk together all the ingredients for the egg mixture until combined. Add half of the chopped herbs and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F. Prepare a medium-sized pie dish (mine is Ø22 cm).

On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough and line the pie dish. Work the edges with your fingers. Fill the quiche shell with remaining chopped herbs, cauliflower, tomatoes, courgette and crumbled feta. Pour the egg mixture over. Bake for 45-55 minutes until it’s golden brown and the center is no longer jiggly. Let cool in the oven for 10 minutes. Serve!
P.S. Quiche is puffed up when hot, but sets up later when cooled.
