Quick Leek and Gruyère Quiche
I don’t like wasting food. So whenever I can, I try to use all the food in my fridge before it perishes. This time I found a roll of ready to use puff pastry, some crème fraîche and two leeks (I bought a whole bunch since they’re in season and therefore cheap), and they all really needed to be eaten today. I find it quite a sport to come up with ideas to combine the food into something presentable.
Since I also had a couple of eggs and found a forgotten piece of Gruyère in the back of the fridge, this was kind of a no-brainer. Leek and Gruyère quiche it was going to be. Easy and fast, and it turned out absolutely delicious. To mask the fact that it was born out of thriftiness, I decorated it with a grid made of dough. Looks pretty fancy like this, doesn’t?
If you don’t have the exact ingredients, don’t worry. This quiche is very forgiving. You can easily substitute the leek with another vegetable, the Gruyère with another cheese, or skip the crème fraîche.
