Tonight, the boyfriend is cooking. Even though I’m the one writing the blog, he is equally good at cooking. Our second date was him inviting me eating sushis he made. The third was me cooking ramen… And then the competition was on. His strong suit? Him being half Italian, I would say the recipes he learned from his grandmother. The lasagnas he makes are to DIE for, seriously. Same with the homemade gnocchi (yes, those recipes are probably gonna appear around here someday). But he’s also really good at preparing delicious and healty meals like salads. Which go really well with this amazing quiche I ate for the first time. I definitely recommend you try it soon!
Recipe: Scandinavian quiche (with salmon, spinach and goat cheese)
- One pre-made puff pastry
- 2 salmon filets
- 500 g fresh spinach
- 4 Eggs
- 20 cl liquid low fat cream (about 1 cup)
- 70 g low fat cream cheese (about 1/3 cup)
- Goat cheese slices
- 1 tsp honey
- 1 stock cube
- Espelette pepper
- Salt, pepper
- Pre-heat your oven at 220°C (430°F – Thermostat 8)
- Cut the spinach stem and chop it in small pieces. In a big pan, cook the spinach with two spoons of water. Add the stock cube and cook until the spinach is soft.
- In a bowl, whisk the eggs, the cream and the cream cheese together until smooth.
- Cut the salmon in small pieces and add it to the mixture. Add the spinach.
- Add the spices to your taste.
- In a pastry dish, place the puff pastry. Prick it several times with a fork. Pour the mixture.
- Place the goat cheese slices on top and add the honey on the cheese.
- Bake for 1 hour. It’s ready when the pastry and the cheese are nice and golden.
Tip n°1: This quiche is delicious warm, but try eating it the following day, cold. It’s awesome!
Tip n°2: the honey is optional, but it goes really well with the goat cheese. Try it with a tomatoes and goat cheese tart!
Tip n°3: Not sure the quiche is done yet? Use a knife you’ll dive in the mixture. If liquid comes out, it needs a bit more cooking.
