Got Fussy Lil Eaters to Feed? A Decoy Quiche to Hide Those Nasty Veggies In!
Is dinnertime at home a potential nightmare every single day? Every mum knows kids can be picky eaters and no matter how hard you try (and we try!), you just can't get them to eat something they don't like the look of.
Here's a one-dish meal that combines the look and taste of everything children love - think pizza and cheese - with all the things mothers obsess over stuffing their kids with - think broccoli, spinach, peas, green beans... you get the idea!
A quiche is basically an open-faced pastry crust that is filled with a savoury custard made with cheese, milk and your choice of vegetables, meat or seafood. Once you've poured the custard into the pie dish, you can just slide it into the oven and go about your other housework. Once 45 minutes are up, dinner's ready and just the aroma will bring your kids to the table.
Just remember to cleverly camouflage any loathed veggies though, by shredding them adequately so they can't make out what they're eating. Read the recipe for quiche here.
Now, for the pastry crust, you can use store-bought pie dough. But I sincerely hope you consider making it at home - it will be fresh, organic and better than anything you would find at the market. Be warned though, once you make your own pie dough, your favourite patisserie is suddenly going to see a lot less of you!
Just watch the video above, follow the steps and you can make enough pie dough on a Sunday to last you for the week. Then it's just a matter of deciding what you want to add to your custard base to give your quiche a different flavour dimension every time. Read the recipe for homemade pie dough here.
