St.David’s Day Crustless Leek Quiche

By Emily O'Reilly | 22 Feb 2021 | RECIPES

As the days are starting to get just a little bit longer there are signs everywhere that spring is starting to pop its head above ground. Nothing more so trumpets springs return than the sunshine filled daffodil, meaning that St. David’s day is also just around the corner.

This weeks recipe has been inspired by the day of Welsh celebration, using the traditional leek in a not quite typical quiche creation. By omitting the pastry element it produces a much lower carb dinner that’s lighter but still packed full of flavour.
