cooking Roast Purple Sprouting Broccoli Quiche
April 15, 2014
My Riverford veg. box has supplied me with a steady supply of seasonal leafy purple sprouting broccoli these last few weeks and rather than have them as a side, I decided it was time for them to take centre stage and be baked into a quiche.
Essentially this is quiche Lorraine, with the addition of broccoli. But rather than the standard boiling of the broccoli –roasting it gives a more intense flavour, as well as lovely burnished frilly bits that poke out of the top. Of course, this can also be done with normal broccoli, but P.S.B. is much more interesting taste and texture wise, and only in season for about a month longer.
