This is a very light Swiss Chard and Sweetcorn quiche and is really easy to make. It’s beautiful and tasty, and it has that lovely light crunch from the sweetcorn, along with the gorgeous flavour from the strong cheese. You could, of course, use whatever you have in your garden or the fridge – it doesn’t need to be these particular ingredients.. It’s also a good way to use up those extra eggs – some of you may know that I have chickens. To me it’s a good way of making the most of them.
I also grow my own chard and spinach – I like to grow both as I find chard easy to grow as well as spinach. I feel chard is a little sweeter than spinach. I like to cook the leaves separately from the stalk as I find they cook quicker, as the stalk can be a bit tougher.
Also, chard, like spinach is full of iron and vitamins and therefore very good for you, and I love the green colour of them both. You can also use the stalks in a soup and the leaves you can have in salad, or just stir fried with garlic. Yummy!
So here we go with the recipe….. my favourite Swiss Chard and Sweetcorn Quiche.
