Can you use fat free yoghurt instead of quark?

Hi – Can you freeze this once its made? Or how long does it last in the fridge? I am looking to make a couple of these to take to work for lunches.

SharleneWednesday 26th July 2017

Just made this and it’s really watery? I’ve cooked it in a Pyrex dish, could that be the problem?

    Emma TTuesday 12th September 2017

    Hi Sharlene,

    It may have been that your veg had more water in than normal – try giving them a squeeze in a tea towel before putting them in the quiche ????

    Hi Amanda,
    The New Year is a very busy time for us, so the website may be a bit slower than normal due to the high volumes of traffic at certain times of the day 🙂
