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.


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

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.
