1 9-inch quiche


  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed

  • 1 cup Romanesco cauliflower florets

  • 1 ½ tablespoons butter

  • 1 ½ cups sliced fresh mushrooms

  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano leaves

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 2 tablespoons water (Optional)

  • 3 eggs

  • ½ cup milk

  • 2 tablespoons milk

  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream

  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream

  • ¾ cup shredded Swiss cheese

  • 1 tablespoon shredded Swiss cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a 9-inch quiche pan with parchment paper.

  2. Press puff pastry into the quiche pan and trim to fit. Prick pastry with a fork and place in the refrigerator.

  3. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add Romanesco florets; cook until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain.

  4. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms; cook and stir until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in drained Romanesco florets, oregano, salt, and pepper. Cook until florets are tender, about 5 minutes, adding water if they start to stick.

  5. Beat eggs in a large bowl. Whisk in 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk and 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons heavy cream. Stir in mushroom mixture. Pour over pastry in the pan. Sprinkle 3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon Swiss cheese on top.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until pastry is golden and quiche is set, about 30 minutes.
