Ingredients

  • 185g ready-baked savoury pastry case
  • ½ x 460g jar roasted red peppers, drained and sliced
  • 4-6 sun-dried tomato halves, chopped
  • 2tbsp sliced black olives
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 170ml carton double cream
  • 2tbsp green pesto
  • Salt and black pepper

Method

  • Set the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4.

  • Put the pastry case on a baking sheet (remove the foil casing if it’s packed in one). Spread the roasted peppers and sun-dried tomatoes over the base and scatter the sliced olives on top.

  • Beat together the eggs, cream, pesto and seasoning and pour into the pastry case. Bake in the centre of the oven for 30-40 mins, until the filling is starting to turn a light-golden colour and has set in the centre.

  • Slide the quiche on to a wire rack and leave to cool. Serve it warm or at room temperature. If making the quiche in advance, chill when cold. It will keep for up to 2 days. Allow to come to room temperature or warm through before serving.
