    About this recipe: A lovely quiche that is lighter than most thanks to using yoghurt instead of cream. For the ham you can use almost any ham - regular, prosciutto or even pre-cooked bacon.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 1 (23cm) pastry case
    • 200g frozen garden peas
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 1 pinch sugar
    • 1 knob of butter
    • 2 large eggs
    • 150g ham, diced
    • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
    • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
    • 175g natural yoghurt
    • 1 handful of grated cheese, such as Gruyere or Cheddar

    Method
    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Bring a pan of water to the boil. Add the peas, salt, sugar and butter. Cook for 5 minutes.
    2. Preheat oven to 220 C / Gas 7. Prepare the pastry case if not using shop bought. Prick the base with a fork and cover with foil and top with rice or beans, so that the pastry does not swell during cooking. Bake the pastry case for 5 minutes.
    3. Drain the peas, then roughly mash half. In a bowl, mix the mashed peas, 2 eggs, yoghurt, mint, salt, pepper, whole peas and diced ham. Sprinkle in a little grated cheese.
    4. Tip the mixture into the pastry case. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until set.
