Delicious salmon, broccoli and dill quiche

Delicious salmon, broccoli and dill quiche

I was so thrilled when I received a box of ingredients from Gousto yesterday! I picked 2 menu from their website last week. They are ‘Salmon, Broccoli and Dill Quiche’ and also ‘Chicken and Quinoa Rissoles with Almond Broccoli’. I chose them because I have never cooked quinoa before and I have never tried making a quiche myself before too. It’s really moving out of my comfort zone. I had 2 friends over for dinner and I was just simply so excited to cook to share with them, praying very hard that they would like it. Prayers answered….haha

I was seriously impressed at how well the ingredients were being packaged and how fresh they were, even organic! They were well insulated on all sides and there were even 2 ice packs inside the box to keep the ingredients cold and fresh. Even the eggs were well packaged and none was broken! Well Done, Gousto!

Good quality recipe cards

Included were 2 impressive recipe cards with instructions on how to cook the dishes. The recipe says each dish can serve 2 people. I stared at the ingredients in complete amazement. For 2 people? Can’t be! It can feed at least 4 people. For the 2 dishes that I got, I think I can have a party for at least 6-8 people instead of 4. Or maybe we are small eaters. I thought my family eats a lot…..*big grin*.

Must tell you that it must have been one of the best meals we had. My guests liked it very much. I will share about the salmon quiche here and and the Chicken and Quinoa Rissoles with Almond Broccoli in another post.

Salmon quiche ingredients

Salmon quiche ingredients

So, here’s the way I made the Salmon Broccoli and Dill Quiche following the step by step instructions given with only one slight change due to personal preference. I pan fry the onions a little instead of boiling it. Here, I summarise the steps.

Ingredients A
200g puff pastry
300g broccoli (remove main stem and cut into florets)

Ingredients B
150g smoked salmon (cut into small pieces)
1 onion (peeled, chopped and lightly fried))
3 eggs (lightly beaten)
100g creame fariche
10g dill (washed and chopped, leaving a couple branches aside for decoration)
pepper and salt to season (not too much salt as the smoked salmon is already quite salty)

Line a dish with the puff pastry. I used a medium sized low corning ware dish. Make sure that the pastry comes way up to the rim. This is because the filling will rise. I’m so thankful I didn’t trim off the pastry. Was very tempted to do so….haha.

Put some water into a pot to boil. Add a little salt. Bring it to boil. Add the broccoli and let the vegetables boil for 3-4 minutes. Remove and let it cool down. I spread it out onto a plate so that it cools down faster. Spread over the puff pastry.

Put all of Ingredients B (except the couple branches of dill meant for decoration) into a mixing bowl. Mix well. Pour over the broccoli and put into the oven which was preheated to 180 degrees Celsius. The recipe said to bake it for about 30 minutes. But mine took about 45 minutes to get cooked. It was still wobbly in the centre when I checked it out after 30 minutes. You can check it with a skewer. If a skewer inserted into the centre comes out dry, then it’s cooked. I think maybe mine took longer to cook because it’s thick as you can see in the top picture above. So, do check with a skewer.

Just look how beautiful the salmon quiche is! I’m just so proud of myself….*BIG smiles* This is a big quiche. I ate a big slice….mmmmm……SO good! I never know that making quiche is so easy. I have eaten quiche before and it was nice, though didn’t fancy it too much. But then freshly made one is very different. I actually really liked it. I hope you will try this.

For those who are busy and want fresh home cooked meals without any hassle and waste, I strongly recommend you to go to Gousto. I believe you won’t be disappointed. They even cater to vegetarians. The prices are very reasonable, worth your every penny. It’s even great for dinner parties. All you need to do is cook according to the step by step instructions. Of course you can adjust if you like.

For Couples Bag, it costs £42 per week, or £39 for vege option. For Family Bag, it costs £67 per week or £62 for vege options. That’s cheap! On top of that, you have no waste and good healthy food everyday. It’s quicker and healthier than going to restaurants.

The menu changes every week….wow! Don’t you like that? That’s because they have their own chefs and nutritionists to create healthy recipes. It actually took me quite a long time to pick my 2 dishes. That’s because I want every dish….haha. Greedy huh….* big grin*. Anyway, do check it out more on their website, Gousto. You may end up like me…want every dish….haha. You can sign up in order to get the up to date recipes. You can also click on the picture here below and it will take you to Gousto website.

Til then, see you in my next post which will be up early next week. Make sure you are back to check out my Chicken and Quinoa Rissoles with Almond Broccoli. This dish is simply lip-smacking good!…….mmmmm.

That’s a huge quiche!!! Been ages since I made one - the older one gets, the lazier one becomes.

Love savoury pies, esp. when there’s salmon involved.

If there is salmon involved just count me in!

Hi Mary,

This looks so yummy!!! I’m so hungry right now but can’t eat anything to keep me full for long. I love quiche, but have never had a freshly made one before. I need to bookmark this. Still have a smoked salmon in my pantry but didn’t know what to do with it. Want to make this when I get better. K would enjoy quiches I think. She likes scrambled eggs and omelettes. Interesting company. I love how the ingredients are already there for you. Part of trying recipes is the hassle of going to the market to find the proper ingredients. Btw, if you saw the way G and I eat, I think you would agree that your family are tiny eaters. Lol. Great review and post!

Mary  on December 15th, 2012

@Katerina - We should start a salmon club!…haha :D

@Mistletoe - If you like salmon and quiche, you should really try this. Nothing is better than being freshly made. I should add prawns too next time…hehe. Yes, I may be a tiny eater but I eat many times a days :D May even add up to more than yours! :P Hope not….haha
