Leek and Lentil Quiche

In the traditional Dutch kitchen leek quiche is made with ham, but this veggie-packed version has a balanced palette of tastes thanks to the walnuts, sun-dried tomatoes and feta. By using soy cream this quiche is a good low dairy option. And no chance of food being wasted, because it always tastes great the next day for lunch!

    Can dairy cream/creme fraiche/ milk be used instead of plant ream/milk?

      Hello Hilary! Thanks for your question. You can also use dairy cream or creme fraiche indeed. Everything between ( ) is a suggestion! Enjoy making it!
