Mustard and Leek Quiche

Mustard and Leek Quiche filled with creamy tofu and seasonings make it a filling and delicious treat to serve as a meal or snack. Quiche is a traditional French savoury open faced pastry stuffed with eggs and vegetables. Apart from being popular in French cuisine, it is usually served in most countries as a party food.

As we are still having Easter break so this weekend we a group of Indians went to a beach for a picnic. The idea was to have picnic o beach and everyone would bring some snacks or party food to share. That’s how I made my letter M dish early in the morning for the picnic. When I sliced the quiche it was still hot and that’s why I couldn’t take out a nice slice for the clicks. Along with quiche, I made anzac cookies and aloo kurkure as a finger food snack. It was a fun filled day ad we all had a great time at the beach. However as expected the day wasn’t sunny and it was really cold but still, we enjoyed eatiNg, chatting and spending time together.
