Healthy Veggie Quiche – A very light and thermomix (or not) recipe
Healthy monday is back. The end of scholo year was a nightmare. So many things to do! But I’m back with my healthy program for you!
It’s summer here! Yeah! We have 37/38 ° C woooooo! So we need here some fresh, light meals. I had some veggies and eggs in the fridge. I didn’t know what to do with them until I thought to change a bit my quiche recipe into a lighter one. More suitable for the weather! As it was so hot, we ate that quiche cool. Just from the fridge. And it wasn’t bad at all!
Not usual for me to share a sweet healthy recipe here but, that’s it!
I was so inspired by those bliss balls that I could see on all my aussie bloggers friends. In fact I have to tell you that I have a grandma recipe very similar to these bliss balls. The difference is that there is no dried fruits in my grandma recipe.
I was really happy to work with Katia, a very nice lady who asked me to write a post about my gastronomical adventures during my travels.
You can find this post here. (Sorry it’s in french!)
It was a real pleasure to write this post because it shows exactly how I get inspired in my recipes creation during my international holidays. To discover new countries and new food, nice restaurants… That’s my lovely passion!
So I want to share with you today this recipe for my Healthy Monday series. It was inspirated by Yotam and his fabulous book: « Plenty ».
In fact we ate those delicious pickelets yesterday for tea time. The kids just loved it.
I didn’t even know what was a pickelet since a few aussie blogger mates posted on them. Mmmmm i have to say, they are like heaven. I tried for my first time the recipe of the very famous veggiemama. She has an amazing blog with a lot of good healthy recipes.
I just added some more fruits to her original recipe. Here some rasberries.
And down here some blueberries.
I used frozen fruits that i just added in the mix. What i really loved about this recipe is the banana flavor. It’s really filling and i even reduced the amount of sugar.
I served them with clementines juice for kids and a cup of tea for the older ones!
In this so cold winter time, i suggest another soup recipe. Something very easy, thermomixable and really filling. Pumpkins are the best in winter!
Ok you may say, boring another pumpkin recipe soup! Yet, i fancied up by enriching it adding, coral lens, chestnut, and a spoon of oat flakes. I got this tip from my friend Saveursetastuces. Add a spoon or two of oat flakes in soups to enrich them, give them consistency. Here we go?
Put everything in the themy except sesame seeds and soya milk.
min, speed 2, 90°C
Mix at Speed 10 for 15 sec
Add soya milk and that's it!
You could try with another veggie milk, must be also good with rice milk or almond milk. Spice it up as you like. If you don’t have the magical thermomix, don’t worry just mix well all the ingredients after cooking them.
For my first healthy monday post, i suggest this delicious veggie quiche.
You could even turn it into a vegan one.
I used carrots and potatoes. No beet-root. The purple color is the color of an ancient variety of carrot: purple carrot! Isnt’it nice? Kids almost thought it was raspberry!
The paste is totally vegan. I made it flat. I added the grated vegetables on it and pour the sauce. It’s really 5 minutes to make and 30 min to bake so a very easy recipe when you have to check homeworks, give bath and all that jazz!
