French Fridays: Roasted tomato quiche

Easy roasted tomato quiche recipe on eatlivetravelwrite.comNope, it doesn’t seem I can seem to quit tomatoes – even when they are on their way out of season… This is a dish I made countless times over the summer when tomatoes were at their peak but I love that it works just as well with tomatoes that are not in season – since you roast them briefly in the oven at a very high temperature this brings out the flavours big time with very little effort.

If you have some (store-bought) puff pastry, a couple of eggs, some heavy cream and Swiss cheese on hand, you’ve got the makings of a quick and tasty dinner with very little effort. Topped with fresh basil from the garden, it’s pretty much my favourite meal right now – I could eat it every day!

It’s a nice way of easing out of summer into fall and you can bet I’ll be making it through the winter as well – taking sad winter tomatoes and roasting them for this dish. It will be a little piece of sunshine on those grey days to come…

Happy (French) Friday!
