I really try to follow the Meat Free Monday movement, but find it challenging to make vegetarian dishes my children will enjoy. However, when I spotted the vegetable quiche in the July issue of F&HE, I knew that dinner for the following Monday was sorted! The best part was that I discovered this recipe during the school holidays, so my youngsters decided to help. My daughter (10) made the pastry – she loved getting her hands into the flour to rub in the butter – and later rose to the challenge of rolling out the dough and lining the quiche/pie dish without any help from me. My son (8) mixed the custard ingredients and was very excited to pick fresh rosemary from our garden. Needless to say, they absolutely loved their dinner and even went back for seconds! What a complete joy for me to have my children in the kitchen sharing my passion for cooking, all with Food & Home Entertaining by our side.
