I love quiches. While it did take me about 14 years of my life to pronounce it correctly (prior to that I used to call it “queash” oops) I have loved it from the first time I’d tried it. The creamy, melt-in-the-mouth texture and savoury rich egg-cheese combination drives me crazy. Well, it isn’t that rare to find quiches in Singapore and Malaysia these days due to a greater appreciation for French baked goods but 10 years ago it would have been quite difficult to find quiches, much less good quiches. However, with an oven, a flan tin, and some eggs and cheese, you can make your own too – It’s really less difficult than we all thought!
That said, although I love quiches I tend to stay away from them unless I’m absolutely craving for them. Why, because it’s extremely calorific. Just take a look at the typical quiche recipe with their cups of cream, full cream milk, grated cheese, eggs, bacon, lardons, not to mention a crust made with lard… Wow, that’s enough explanation is it not? Good news is, I’d found a recipe to make healthy quiches replacing unhealthy ingredients while still retaining the rich flavour of a good quiche! Mainly, it’s the ingenious replacement of the cream with smooth Greek yoghurt and the exclusion of the crust (store bought ones can be deceivingly unhealthy). Surprisingly, it still tastes as good!
