This was really nice, a nice vegetarian quiche (and a good way to use up your courgette glut!) - 06 Nov 2013


This recipe is so easy to follow and tasts amazing. I used it for my GCSE catering exam and it was brilliant. To help add to this I also added slices of tomato on top to give it more colour. - 09 Apr 2016


Very good and easy to make! I don't like courgette very much, but my husband likes vegetarian dishes. This dish is delicious, I can't stop eating it! I did change recipe a bit, added 2 coarsely grated carrots and some chopped parsley to courgettes half way thru, and instead on 3 eggs, I used 5. - 24 Aug 2013
