Swiss Chard Quiche

Today I have a wonderful recipe I enjoy making when I have fresh Swiss Chard in my garden. 

Quiche with Swiss Chard

Vegetarian Dish

This dish takes a bit longer, but it can be eaten warm or cold. Wonderful with a green salad. For 4 Person:

For the Base:

  • 90 g soft Butter
  • 180 g Flour
  • 3 Tbsp Water
  • Dash of salt

Work the soft butter with the flour together, add the salt and water and kneel it to a soft dough. Dust it with flour and let it sit for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare the filling:


Mince the garlic and roast it some butter or oil in a pan. Add the champignons and Swiss Chard and cook it for about 5 minutes. Add the mustard last.

Mix the following ingredients together in a bowl and set aside.

  • 60 g Sunflower seeds (or pumpkin seeds)
  • 100 g Ricotta
  • 50 g Parmesan
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 Tbsp Sour Cream

Heat up the oven to 180 degrees C. convection and grease a round cake tin and spread the dough evenly on the ground, pushing the edges up a bit. Punch a folk a few times into the dough and bake it for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile mix the Swiss Chard and the Ricotta-egg mix. After 15 minutes, take the pan out of the oven and spread the veggie – cheese mix on the dough. Continue backing for another 40 minutes.

If you love cheese like us, add some cheese on top and gratinate it.
