The beauty of a quiche is its flexibility. It’s the perfect dish to use up leftovers while creating a fantastic meal.


  • Puff Pastry – 200gr (1 Roll)
  • Chicken – 200gr (Already Cooked)
  • Roasted Vegetables – 150gr (e.g. carrots, bell peppers, onions, mushrooms)
  • Tofu – 100gr
  • Onions – 2 (Medium)
  • Garlic – 2 Cloves
  • Olive Oil – To Taste
  • Eggs – 3 L
  • Heavy Cream – 150ml
  • Gouda Cheese – 100gr (Grated)
  • Parmesan Cheese – 50gr
  • Oregano – A Pinch
  • Pepper – A Pinch
  • Sal – A Pinch


  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC and line a tart pan with the puff pastry, then poke the bottom with a fork.
  2. Begin by quickly sautéing chopped onions and garlic in a frying pan with a drizzle of olive oil. While they sizzle, shred the cooked chicken into small pieces and chop the roasted vegetables into small pieces.
  3. Once the onions and garlic turn golden, remove them from the pan and combine with the chicken and roasted veggies in the tart pan.
  4. Cut the tofu into small cubes and sprinkle it over the vegetables.
  5. Mix the eggs and heavy cream with a pinch of salt and pepper. Whisk well (if you’re in a rush like me, use a tall bowl and a hand blender for a quick mix), then pour this mixture over the ingredients in the tart pan.
  6. Place the Gouda cheese pieces on top, followed by a generous grating of Parmesan cheese and a pinch of pepper. Bake in the oven for about 35-40 minutes until it turns a lovely golden color. Bon Appétit!
Notes: For extra flavor, consider adding your favorite herbs or spices. Don’t hesitate to swap or add other ingredients according to your taste, preference or the leftovers you have. Feel free to experiment with various cheese blends for diverse flavor profiles.
