A delicious leek quiche with goat cheese and walnuts. The leek gives a delicious sweetness and the walnuts keep it nice and crunchy. A drip of honey gives a nice sweetness. A recipe that is really recommended.
Cold, chilly winter weather. That is certainly the weather forecast. In any case it's stormy weather. And in that weather I put a delicious quiche on the table.
With leeks, a vegetable that I find truly undervalued. So often it is used as padding in the nasi or a stew. But the sweetness of leeks is something I really can appreciate. One of my favorite vegetables. And therefore leek will be getting the lead role in this quiche. Nice right?!?

How do you prepare this vegetarian quiche?
A printable recipe, in easy steps, can be found on the bottom of this blog.
Step 1: Brush a quiche form with oil (or butter) and preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (220 degrees Celsius). Cover a quiche form of 10.5 inches (26 cm) with puff pastry. To make sure the air can get out underneath the bottom you prick some holes with a fork in the bottom.
Step 2: Fill the quiche: spread the sliced leek, sun-dried tomatoes, walnuts and goat cheese on the bottom of the quiche. Drip 2 tablespoons of honey on top.
Step 3: Put the eggs and crème fraîche in a bowl and whisk until combined. Pour that in the quiche form and spread the filling.
Step 4: Sprinkle grated cheese on top of the quiche and bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
- Prick holes in the bottom of the quiche so the air can escape. Otherwise the bottom will rise and the filling can get out.
- Put the crème fraîche 15 minutes before use at room temperature. It will be easier to whisk it.
- Check the quiche after 15 minutes baking in the oven. If it gets to brown, cover it with aluminium foil and then bake further for the remaining time.
