5 sun-dried tomatoes (oil packed), finely chopped 2 1/2 tbsp
Oven-Roasted Peppers
margarine non-hydrogenated , to grease the pie-dish

Before you start

Peppers must be roasted in advance.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C/350°F. Grease a pie-dish.
  2. Drain the sun-dried tomatoes and chop them finely. Peel, clean and pat dry the roasted peppers, then cut them into strips of about 1 cm.
  3. In a bowl, beat the eggs with the cottage cheese using a fork. Add a little salt. Mix in the grated cheese, peppers, and tomatoes.
  4. Pour into the prepared pie-dish and bake in the middle of the oven 35-40 min until firm. Check with a tooth-pick or knife if it is cooked through. If it comes out clean, the quiche is ready.
  5. Let rest a few minutes before cutting.

Excellent easy delicious recipe. I used regular green peppers chopped up and roasted a regular tomato with 10 of my own small (grape sized) dried tomatoes. Just rehydrated them in hot water.

Awesome base recipe. I have made this several times with whatever ingredients I have on hand (leftover fresh herbs, meat, veg, etc)and it has always turned out beautifully. I make it with six servings for a full pie, and I find it takes closer to 45 minutes to cook through. Delicious.
