Rainbow Quiche Recipe – The Wooden Crate kitchenware Give Away.

April 16, 2012

rainbow chard quice recipe

As the nights get colder we are picking the last of our summer veggies. Our always late to ripen tomatoes, the last zucchini and lots of rainbow silverbeet.

Rainbow silverbeet, or rainbow chard if you live on the other side of the world, is one of our many ‘bonus plants’. They are a bonus because we never plant them, they just self seed and pop up in various spots around the veggie garden.

Rainbow Silverbeet is really good for you. Eat it like you would spinach, add the tiny, very young, leaves to salads, steam larger leaves gently as a side dish, or add to a variety of recipes.

I love plants like that. Great rewards for absolutely no time or effort!

To use up the last of our homegrown veggies we’ve created this ‘rainbow quiche’ recipe… so called because it’s full of rainbow silverbeet, as well as other great things.

Rainbow Quiche Recipe

rainbow silverbeet quiche recipe

1 small zucchini grated
2 small carrots grated
a bunch of rainbow silver beat chopped
a handful of cherry tomatoes, or 2 medium tomatoes chopped
5 eggs
1 cup of self raising flour
1 cup of grated cheese
50ml oil
Onion, herbs, salt and pepper.

The exact amounts of vegetables in this recipe doesn’t matter. If I don’t have zucchini, I use more carrots and silverbeet. If I don’t have fresh tomatoes I chuck in some chopped sun-dried tomatoes and olives instead. So it’s great for using up left overs or whatever is in the garden.

Preheat your oven to 180 Celsius and grease a dish or deep sided tray.

Mix it all the ingredients together, pour them into the dish and cook for 30-45 minutes or until cooked in the middle.

I’m planning to use the utensils to cook your wonderful Rainbow Quiche with my daughter who is obsessed with matryoshkas and will definitely be wearing her matryoshka apron to match!

Aussie Mum April 16, 2012 at 4:34 pm

OOhh super cute cooking utensils – I love it and so will my three boys! My youngest two don’t like to sit still for breakfast so I make a lot of muffins for them to snack on when they are sitting in the pram while we walk their older brother to school. Those measuring spoons and cups will come in very handy for my little kitchen helpers when they are measuring out muffin ingredients! I’m trying to avoid eating all the muffins so I could use the beautiful bamboo serving bowl for all the healthy salads I have been eating lately instead of the muffins! Wish me luck and thanks for sharing!

Because the weather had turned much cooler here in Tasmania, it is perfect soup weather. There is nothing in the world that complements soup like a Southern Cornbread. Southern, as in Southern USA (South Carolina to be specific). Whenever I am missing being back in ‘the South’, a cornbread always makes me feel better! I must admit that I made 3 last week and ate almost all of them, minus a couple of slices for the kids. So I would use my measuring set to make a nice big cornbread with heaps of butter slathered all over it!

If I was lucky enough to win, I would make a beetroot chocolate cake I’ve been meaning to try…
Making something so delicious with some deliciously sweet utensils would make the task even more fun! :)

Thanking you for a great competition!
xx

Carole April 16, 2012 at 6:09 pm

you mean, what wouldn’t I cook with them ! But I think I would start with a roast soy chicken I’ve been meaning to try – needs lots of sppon measures for the marinade and some homemade granola which uses lots of different sizxed cup measurements. They really are gorgeous hey !

Dottycookie April 16, 2012 at 7:32 pm

I’m not in Australia, so not eligible for the giveaway, but had to chime in as a fellow fan of chard – we can’t often buy it in the supermarket so. Have to grow I and in love it! Your quiche looks glorious.

Vicki April 16, 2012 at 7:48 pm

School holiday time here in WA so I’m restocking the freezer with lunchbox snacks to make mornings a little easier so they would be used for this. If I won the M-spoons and M-cups it would mean the current ones would be bumped down to the play kitchen for the kids, there never seems to be enough to go round!

Maureen Dempsey April 16, 2012 at 8:40 pm

These would be a welcome addition to my kitchen – I would use them to make a yummy sticky date pudding with lashing of caramel sauce, served with homemade vanilla bean icecream. Just the thing for these cooler evenings!! Yum!!

Ronnie April 17, 2012 at 5:34 am

I love baking and these measuring soppns and cups are too cute. At the moment I am busy planning birthday cakes for my older two who have birthdays 5 days apart. I am also trying out muffin recipes in the hopes I find one my son will eat in his school lunch

Heather @ Life, Gluten Free April 17, 2012 at 7:39 am

I’m not entering since I don’t live in Australia, but I just wanted to say the M-Cups are so cute. I saw them on Amazon a while back and wanted to buy them!

Karen April 17, 2012 at 8:47 am

I will attempt gnocchi again! I made it last night for the first time… It wasn’t great. We saved the chunks of gluggy dough with sour cream and soy sauce. My wonderful 4 kids and hubby ate it up without complaint which was a pleasant surprise. Sometimes everything goes wrong but you laugh and learn and then clean up the enormous mess you made!

Caroline April 17, 2012 at 12:00 pm

Akin to the, “Russian Dolls,” that I played with as a child, this set is fun, yet is more practical.

Kirsten April 17, 2012 at 1:33 pm

So nice!!! We (ok, I) are a big baking family here, so new measing spoons and cups would be a bonus, we are currently on a muffin craze.

Charmaine April 17, 2012 at 2:24 pm

Hello, I’ve just discovered your blog through a google search for toddler recipes and my google hunt led me here! I wonder if my fussy little one will eat quiche? Your blog is lovely, I’ll be sure to visit again soon.

Lauren Burke April 17, 2012 at 2:55 pm

My girl loves cooking with me. She really loves “pike-leps” but always want to help. She loves Te babushka dolls so these would make a cute addition and I love the bamboo bowl! Thanks Lauren

Melissa K April 17, 2012 at 3:17 pm

I would have a go at this delicious Rainbow Quiche recipe, sounds delish!
Thanks for sharing :)

Ozemutha April 17, 2012 at 4:13 pm

I’d pass them onto my father in law who can cook cakes and muffins like a demon but lets see if he can tackle the rainbow quiche?

Di April 17, 2012 at 4:45 pm

My decadently indulgent flour-less chocolate cake with Kahlua fudge sauce. It’s so moist because it’s steamed in the oven, and as moreish as it is, it’s so rich you can’t eat more that one slice per sitting.

DIANA April 17, 2012 at 4:48 pm

Peanut butter slice. Mere words can not describe how delicious it is…..now all to do is somehow wangle Nan’s secret recipe out of her before she takes it to her grave!!!

Karina W April 17, 2012 at 8:27 pm

I would bake a hot chocolate pudding, perfect for these rainy cold nights!

tahlia - the parenting files April 17, 2012 at 9:26 pm

i am writing a comment to tell you that I have my baking dish out waiting for me to make this tomorrow! So easy and I can’t wait to try it! After my big baking attempts last week I realised I need some new essentials like these! So baking it would be ! xx

kerry santillo April 18, 2012 at 11:58 am

My daughter and I would make our famous butterfly cakes,
the utensils would be easier for measuring and easier to make.
Having fun in the kitchen is our aim, we make it a game
flour and sugar everywhere, and laughing all the same.

Rebecca Baker April 18, 2012 at 3:40 pm

My partner is begging me to make your wonderful looking quiches! So thats what i will do

Jennifer B. April 19, 2012 at 12:31 am

It’s my STRAWBERRY MERINGUE CAKE, a dessert unbeaten,
Best celebration cake, nowhere else eaten.
Family loves it, leaves all guests replete,
All birthdays: Strawberries, sponge, meringue layers… SWEET!!!

Chloe April 21, 2012 at 4:45 pm

How adorable :) I’d use these beautiful Babushka measuring spoons + cups to make delicious and delicate Russian tea cakes!

Penny George April 22, 2012 at 10:03 am

It’s sad when the family wince
“Mum’s cooked – spare us more mince”
They moan, wish I was deaf
with M-gear I’d hear Mmm-mince ala M-asterChef!

Sarah White April 22, 2012 at 3:23 pm

Oooooh tough choice on what I would use them to cook first… uMmmmmmmm – to assist me in making M-Muffins for my wonderful M-Mum on M-Mothers Day

Rita April 22, 2012 at 5:33 pm

I would make a Russian Borscht soup and potato perogi ( half moon soft dough stuffed with mashed potato, boiled like gnocchi and sauted in butter, diced onions and bacon. Served with a dollop of sour cream.

Lauren Baber April 22, 2012 at 9:25 pm

I haven’t scored any ‘bonus’ silver beet from our garden yet, but the stuff we planted just kept giving and giving.
We use Jamie’s spinach and pinenut pie as an inspiration, and then my daughter and I kind of wing it, depending on whats in the fridge and garden, and how much of any herb or spice she wants to add in! A set of m cups and m spoons would help us to record and replicate our successful inventions more accurately.
We made an interesting discovery last time we made it: while 2yo daughter was in charge of hand stirring the egg mix, mum was turned away toasting pinenuts. We discovered that if two yr old starts saying “knee knee knee” whilst stirring, it’s best not to delay turning back to her, as she was busily discovering how the mixture felt being poured all over her bare legs!

Monica April 22, 2012 at 10:30 pm

Potato Crusted Lental Hotpot…main ingredients are whatever veggies you have on hand, pre-cook with lots of tomatoes, tomatoe paste, curry, cooked lentals..any herbs you like! Microwave pototoes and layer on top! Bake…avoid each other the next day ’cause its such a ‘healthy’ dish! Lol!

Kim April 23, 2012 at 10:29 am

These would be super helpful for the French Bistro themed brunch I’m planning for my mum this Mother’s day!

Rachel Watt April 23, 2012 at 10:58 am

My delicious kitkat chocolate cake sure would taste that little bit better using these awesome utensils!

Angela f April 23, 2012 at 5:42 pm

Green vegetables and salmon pasta, This recipe is not only healthy but really delicious! It’s quick to prepare and uses ingredients that are in most pantries.”

s oconnor April 23, 2012 at 9:25 pm
