We love a quiche, It’s a classic dish, but sadly pastry and slimming don’t go well together. Well unless you want to spend all your calories and Points on a tiny piece of pastry? Personally, we would rather save them for a bottle of wine!

Can I use cream cheese instead of quark

Reply

    Steve CowderoyFriday 8th May 2020

    Hi Kim, thanks for getting in touch with us, you can use a light cream cheese in this recipe. We use Quark as it has a lower fat content than most cream cheeses. Hope this helps and please let us know how you get on with the recipe.

I made this last night. Can I re-heat it?

    Holly LevellMonday 18th May 2020

    Hi Kelly, This is best eaten fresh but if you allow any leftovers to cool, make sure to refrigerate. You can keep leftovers of Smoked Salmon and Broccoli Quiche in the fridge for approximately 3 days.
    I wouldn’t recommend reheating the quiche because of the salmon but it’s great eaten cold.

Is this quiche freezeable? Thanks.

    Hi Mandy,

    Egg based recipes like this may not defrost successfully as they can become watery…it’s probably best to make this fresh, and it will keep in the fridge for a few days ????
