Cherry Tomato and Basil Quiche

Cherry Tomato and Basil Quiche

A quiche is always a good option for a quick and easy meal that the whole family loves. We make different quiches all year around. This Cherry Tomato and Basil Quiche is the perfect one for summer. Cherry tomatoes are at their best in summer being really juicy and sweet and our basil is just ready to be picked.

We normally cook quiche on those really busy days. Like many parents, since we had Luca, our now 17-month-old toddler, days seem way shorter and cooking sometimes become an impossible mission. Still, we want to eat healthy and nutritious meals. This is it guys! You can leave it ready the day before or do like us, prepare it in the morning before the little rugrat awakes.

Our cherry tomato and basil quiche can be served cold or right after cooking it. This recipe uses store-bought dairy-free shortcrust pastry but if you have time on your hands and feel like making it from scratch have a look at this Vegan Pie Crust. The quiche mixture is dairy-free and vegetarian.

How to prepare our Cherry Tomato and Basil Quiche Step by Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 200Cº.
  2. Unfold the crust and place into a rounded tart tin. You don’t need to bake it before adding the rest of the ingredients if your pie crust is store-bought. If you are making the crust from scratch, it may need to be baked for at least 10 minutes before adding the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Add in a medium-size mixing bowl the eggs. Beat them with a fork or a whisk and add dried herbs such as thyme and herbs de Provence, yeast flakes, soy milk, soy cream, finely chopped fresh basil, sweet paprika, salt and pepper.
  4. Mix all the ingredients and pour the mixture over the crust. Cut the cherry tomatoes in halves and kindly arrange the tomatoes on the mixture.
  5. Bake for about 35-40 minutes or until the top has turned golden colour and the pastry light brown.
