For the short crust pastry

For the filling


  • Prepare the short crust pastry mixing all the ingredients and let it rest in the fridge covered with cling foil.
  • Wash and cut the onion, leeks and zucchini into thin slices
  • Stir fry the onion and the leeks at medium heat with the butter and 1 tbsp of olive oil.
  • Once the onion becomes translucent add the ham, the zucchini and stir fry until they begin to brown. Add salt.
  • Add the mushrooms cut in quarters.
  • And zucchini flowers if you have them.
  • Cook until the mushrooms are slightly browning.
  • Move the ingredients into a large container and let them cool down for at least 30 minutes. Adjust for salt.
  • In the meantime, roll the short crust pastry and cover the base of a baking pan with parchment paper. Butter the base and the sides.
  • Cover with the pastry and pierce it with a fork. This stops the pastry from rising while cooking. Put it back in the fridge for 30 minutes
  • Returning back to the vegetable filling, discharge any excess liquid released by the mushrooms. Add the eggs, the Emmental and mix.
  • Pour the mix into the short pastry and fold over the edges.
  • Cook in a hot oven at 180 C for 35 minutes. Let it rest for at least 10 minutes before serving.


  • Always buy small zucchini as they have fewer seeds
  • If you want a vegetarian version you don't have to use bacon or ham, but they do add flavour to the quiche
  • Once the filling cools down, it will release some liquid. If it is too much remove some
  • Make sure the pastry is cold from the fridge when you put the quiche in the oven
  • Best if the filling is at room temperature when you fill in the pastry
