With a pastry case at the ready you can make this easy, delicious, veg-rich supper in under an hour. This creamy vegetable quiche recipe brings together garden green favourites, peas and courgettes, complemented with fragrant parsley and Italian Parmasan. Cut the quiche into wedges and pack as part of a picnic, or serve with salad and eat in the garden for a fun al fresco dinner. This is a popular dish for families as one quiche easily feeds six people. To make this quiche recipe vegetarian use Gruyère cheese or Emmental cheese instead of Parmasan cheese
