Bean Quiche

This bean quiche is a delicious quiche using cost-effective ingredients and filling you up at the same time! It’s great for saving money! For this recipe, we used white beans but you can use any other form of the bean as long as it can go into this!

Red Leicester cheese is used in this- but other forms of grated cheese are okay as well! If you want to put any vegetables in this make sure to brown them. I didn’t put any into the recipe since I was out of vegetables and well. This food blog is for starving students! So there are a lot of ingredients lacking to make up for the cheap price. If you’re looking for a meat quiche, we in fact have a pork loin quiche!

Pork Loin Quiche

Pork Loin Quiche is a delicious quiche- it’s got the quintessential properties of one. Cheese and meat with herbs and spices. It’s both cost-effective as it uses one of the cheapest parts of pork available at the store. Along with utilizing mostly homemade ingredients like the pie pastry and stuff you can grow yourself.

The double cream used in this recipe gives it a nice creamy feel when eating the quiche and a lot of flavour depth too! We suggest crushing the garlic you use in this recipe and then dicing it. This activates that lovely flavour of the garlic.

If you want a meat-free quiche we have a vegetable quiche which you can cook instead.

Vegetable Quiche

Vegetable Quiche is delicious and fulfilling. Despite no meat- it still fills you up pretty well! Though not fully vegan due to the milk and cheese content, those can be substituted. You can substitute those with almond milk or oat milk. With the cheese – you can easily substitute it with vegan cheese.

We use crushed garlic with this recipe to activate the garlic. If you want a more browned taste- you can brown them instead. This would mean you would have to dice them instead of crushing them. We used turmeric pie pastry for the pastry which you can make here.
