Jake’s Coronation Quiche


Pastry Crust

  • 400 g store bought savoury shortcrust pastry
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 600 g baking beans or dry rice

Quiche Filling

  • 1 leek cut in half lengthways & thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 10 g tarragon chopped
  • 100 g tasty cheese grated
  • 50 g Parmesan grated
  • 4 eggs
  • 250 ml cream
  • drizzle oil
  • 2 cups edamame
  • 50 g baby spinach
  • 1 Tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • ½ tsp cracked pepper


  • 1. Prep pastry crust
    Preheat oven to 190°C. Grease and line a 25cm loose-bottomed quiche tin. Roll pastry about 1-cm thick on a lightly floured surface. Carefully place into baking tin and trim the top of the pastry using a sharp knife. Prick a few times with a fork, being careful not to go right through the pastry. Refrigerate for about 15 minutes.
  • 2. Prepare filling
    Trim dark green ends from the leek. Cut in half lengthways and thinly slice. Mince garlic, chop tarragon and grate tasty and Parmesan cheeses. In a large bowl, whisk eggs and cream together. Season with salt and set aside.
  • 3. Blind bake pastry crust
    Line the base and sides of the pastry crust with baking paper and fill with baking beans or dry rice. Place on baking tray and bake for 25 minutes. Remove beans or rice and paper and bake the empty case for 4-5 minutes, until the base is lightly brown. Set aside to cool.
  • 4. Cook greens
    Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frypan on high heat. Add leek, pepper and garlic to pan and cook for about 3 minutes, until golden. Add edamame to pan and cook for a further 2 minutes. Add tarragon, spinach, first measure of mustard and pepper measure. Season with salt and cook for a further 2 minutes, until spinach is wilted. Set aside to cool slightly.
  • 5. Bake quiche
    Combine the cheese and egg mixture with the greens. Pour into prepared pastry case and bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden and filling is just set. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
  • 7. Serve
    Slice quiche into 8 pieces and serve with leafy greens.
