Stinging nettle & onion quiche

Here’s a simple and tasty crustless quiche recipe using stinging nettle, which is also dairy-free.

For tips on picking and preparing stinging nettle, as well as other easy recipes using this wild edible plant, see my earlier post Cooking with stinging nettles.



100g stinging nettle
2 onions, chopped
1 zucchini, cubed
4 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons softened butter
1 1/2 cups soy or rice milk
1/2 cup flour (can be gluten-free flour)
Salt and pepper

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
2. Fry chopped onions and zucchini for a couple of minutes. Add stinging nettle, turn down heat and let greens reduce and wilt. Stir often.
3. When onion, zucchini and stinging nettle mixture is cooked through, turn off heat.
4. Mix butter, flour, eggs and milk in bowl until well-combined.
5. Pour veggie mixture into quiche baking pan and spread evenly. Pour egg mixture over and bake for approx 30 minutes, until quiche is golden on top.
