  1. 1 cup broad beans, blanched and peeled
  2. 1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
  3. 1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
  4. 1/4 cup bell peppers, diced
  5. 4 large eggs
  6. 1/2 cup milk
  7. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  8. 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  9. 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  10. 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  11. 1 pre-made pie crust, thawed

Processing Steps

  1. Preheat the oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Prepare the filling: In a mixing bowl, combine the blanched and peeled broad beans, cheddar cheese, onion, and bell peppers. Mix well.
  3. Whisk the eggs: In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, black pepper, dried thyme, and dried oregano.
  4. Assemble the quiches: Roll out the pre-made pie crust and cut it into circles that fit into your muffin tin. Press the crust into each cup of the muffin tin. Spoon the filling mixture into the crusts, then pour the egg mixture over the filling, filling each cup to about ¾ full.
  5. Bake: Place the muffin tin in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the quiches are set and golden brown.
  6. Cool and serve: Allow the quiches to cool for a few minutes before removing them from the muffin tin. Serve warm or at room temperature.
