Cooked Mama Cucina Vegetable Quiche

The Verdict

These quiches are sold frozen and can be eaten hot or cold.  To eat cold you need to remove the quiche from it’s carton and defrost for 3 hours at room temperature or 4 hours in a fridge.  To eat hot for best results cook from frozen.  Remove from carton and place in the middle of a preheated oven and cook for 30 – 40 minutes.

We decided on the hot option and put ours in the oven, the quiche smelled delicious whilst it was cooking and we kept a close eye on it’s progress.  As the quiche cooked the filling appeared to be very runny, when it had cooked for 40 minutes we were nervous about being able to successfully remove the quiche from it’s foil case.  The pastry was only on the bottom of the quiche so we were worried that if we removed the foil case too soon that the inside of the quiche would just run everywhere.  We kept the quiche in the oven for around another 10 mins until it looked a little firmer.

The filling was delicious, it was packed full of tasty peppers and broccoli and had a lovely light and creamy consistency.  The base let the quiche down for us and we much preferred the filling,  my husband said he thought that the base tasted like sawdust!

It’s amazing to think that you can actually buy a quiche that is free from Eggs, Milk and Gluten when you consider that they are actually the main ingredients that would normally go into it.  This is a great free from product and if they could improve on the base it would be perfect for us.

I will definitely be looking out for some more products from Mama Cucina to try.
