Quiche me Quick: Asian-inspired salmon quiche

I love cooking. (No surprise there) I love baking. (Again, not the most astonishing confession)And I love eating healthy. (Surely the first two need not rule out a well-balanced diet?)

Hence my sincere and utter adoration for this quiche. With just a wee bit of cooking and baking, you can conjure up the most nutritiously healthy quiche, that is packed full of Asian flavours and gives you a great Omega-3 boost!

When I tell people that I love cooking and eating, they often react with the rather insulting “You’re too skinny to be a foodie”-remark.( Especially when they read my posts about the very sweet treats I like to bake 😉 ) The truth is: I love sugary sweet things. I love eating sugary sweet things. But I love healthy food as well. It is all about balance. So I’m skinny- so what? If their narrow-mindedness cannot seem to comprehend the possibility of being a skinny foodie, well, that is their problem, not mine!

But let’s not dwell on my personal frustrations and let us focus on this yummy quiche instead. It is healthy and yet very comforting at the same time! Not possible? Wait ‘till you try it yourself! Your taste buds will simply resolve and reconcile these ostensible contradictions!

Asian-inspired salmon quiche

Ingredients:

• One sheet of short crust pastry
• 300gr salmon fillet, cut into 2cm cubes
• 1 granny smith apple, diced
• 2 heads of chicory, chopped
• Fresh coriander, chopped
• 1 tbsp curry powder
• 1 tsp turmeric
• 3 eggs
• 150ml skimmed milk
• 150ml low-fat cream

Method:

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C and line a 23cm loose-bottomed quiche tin with the short crust pastry. Prick the pastry all over with a fork, line the pastry case with greaseproof paper and fill it with rice or dried beans. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
2. For the filling, beat together the eggs, milk and cream. Add the curry powder, turmeric and salt and pepper.
3. Remove the greaseproof paper and the beans and arrange all the remaining ingredients evenly in the bottom of the pastry case.
4. Pour the egg mixture into the pastry case and bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes

Rainy day treats

guys voor

Although the title may suggest otherwise, this is not a post about food, cake or baking. Believe me when I say that I completely understand the urge to indulge yourself in something sweet when it is raining cats and dogs outside. However, “something sweet” does not necessarily have to come out of the oven and contain sugar, it may also refer to the selection of man candy below.

Just like a cake that comes straight out of the oven, these men are sweet, yummy, delicious and hot. Luckily for all of us ladies (and the not so straight gentlemen) these guys do not contain calories, so please don’t feel guilty of absolutely enjoying this post. You’re supposed to! 😉

So wherever you are when you’re reading this – it doesn’t necessarily have to rain- I hope you’ll have a moment of pure joy…

Oh, and by the way: should you for some inexplicable reason feel guilty for objectifying these guys, just remember:

men feelings

Are you ready?
