I always thought that quiche was a dish invented by the French but apparently not. The Germans have this claim to fame with their kuchen, meaning cake. A savory egg custard tart which they used brioche rather than the traditional short pastry.
No matter really, as this recipe has it’s origin from a twenty year old Australian Womens Weekly cookbook. Before the low fat madness hit we could eat cream and cheese without fear.
Fast forward over those two decades when saturated fat was demonised and my favourite quiche was only made occasionally and then eaten with guilt. Well, that has changed now, hasn’t it?
Now the big issue is the pastry and all that wheaty flour. But with thanks to Everyday Mavens paleo pastry and the addition of oregano a perfect tart based was found. So if you tolerate dairy then this lovely quiche is perfectly yummy eaten hot or cold. Without grains, without gluten and without guilt!
