Healthy quiche

IT’S healthy eating week (10-14 June) so why not try this healthy quiche? It’s low in fat, full of vegetables and is perfect for a packed lunch or evening meal.

The great thing about this recipe is that you can make it using whatever ingredients you like. We have it with vegetables and occasionally meat-free sausages, but you can also include sausages, bacon or tuna. You can add a sprinkling of cheese on top or to the egg and cottage cheese mixture.

It’s simple to make and tastes delicious.
