French Mini Quiches!! [Tomato-Basilic & Carrot-Goat Cheese]

Does anyone loves mini quiches? Being in France for almost 4 years has made me a big Mini quiches sucker.
I just found them super cute and delicious. At home, we eat one at least once every 2 weeks, I like to do them cause the combination of ingredients is infinite. I love all! Carrot, leeks, pepper, tomato basil even the traditional ones make a easy, fast and great meal.

Today I will be sharing with you 2 of my dearest mini quiches recipes.
The carrot-goats cheese and the tomato-basil ones.
I promise you they will become your new favorites.

For the mini quiches you will need:
Makes 6

  • 1 bIg tomato
  • 2-3 Carrots
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Basil leaves
  • Salt & black pepper
  • 1 roll of puff pastry
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup cream
  • 1 tablespoon of dried herbs
  • 100gm goats cheese

Preparation

Preheat oven to 180°C.
Peal and slice the carrots. In a small casserole filled with water and a little bit of salt, bring the carrots to a boil or until soft and well cooked.
Slice and place tomatoes on a baking tray cover with parchment paper. Sprinkle the tomatoes with dried herbs, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper (just a pinch).
Bake in oven for 12-15 minutes or until tomatoes have slightly softened and charred.

While the tomatoes in the oven, line 6 mini quiche tins with the rolled puff pastry.
Refrigerate for 15 minutes (optional) I only do this when I have time.
In a small bowl combine eggs with some oregano, salt and pepper.
Now we will assemble the quiches.

For the carrot ones: Place some goats cheese in the bottom, 1 teaspoon of cream seasoned with salt and pepper, cover with carrots , more goat cheese dots a little cream, few carrots for decoration sprinkled with pepper and pour a little of egg mixture.

For the tomato basil ones: Place Goat cheese first, teaspoon of cream seasoned, few slices of roasted tomatoes in the centre of each pastry shell, basil leaves (2 medium), again cheese and cream, tomatoes for decoration and a spoon of egg mixture to almost fill the pastry shell.

When all quiches ready, place in the oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until  set and golden.

Serve warm with a green salad and wine.

Decor the tomato ones with a little fresh basil leave.

If you have people over, this little french quiches will conquer your guests hearts!

Wishing you a lovely day,

Bon appétit,
