Easy & Delicious Vegetarian Quiche

By Sofia Gallo

A quick and easy fix for hungry crowds or for those summer picnics to the park. They can also be prepared in advance, and they only require a few ingredients. This version is vegetarian, but you can add your own preferred ingredients.

Prep: 30 min

Cook: 30-40 min

Difficulty Easy

Makes 18-20 mini tartlets


  • Readymade and rolled puff pastry – or shortcrust pastry (pie crust)
  • 1 small red bell pepper – finely diced
  • 1 small yellow bell pepper – finely diced
  • ½ red onion – thinly sliced
  • Olive oil for cooking
  • Seasoning to taste
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 150 g crème fraiche
  • 100 g grated gruyere cheese – or preferred one


  1. Make sure to take the pastry out of the fridge about 15 min before using. Place a frying pan on medium heat, once hot add 2 tbsp olive oil and add your vegetables. Season and cook until softened.
  2. In the meantime, roll out the pastry and cut out 18-20 circles. Don’t get rid of the spare pastry as this can become cheesy straws.
  3. In a jug mix your eggs, crème fraiche and seasoning and whisk with a fork until combined.
  4. Time to assemble: Place the pastry circles on the tin holes. Make sure to leave these just on the top as the pastry will shrink whilst baking and place itself in the cases.
  5. Add your vegetables, about a tsp for each tartlet, top with the egg mix, and sprinkle the gruyere cheese before baking in a preheated oven to  200C/180C fan/gas 6 until golden brown.


Enjoy hot or cold – these can also be frozen to be enjoyed later.
