These mini crustless vegetable quiches came to be after I needed a quick lunch last week. My impending homelessness has made me be a bit more frugal with my food shopping and that means getting inventive with left overs so I set about seeing what else was lurking in the fridge after I finally used up the left over mincemeat and rustled these up. They fit the bill of a healthy lunch that would provide packed lunch left overs for the following day. You could use any leftover bits for these and omit the pesto if you don’t have Mediterranean style veg to hand.
I’m still not feeling 100% and the surprise cold spell this week prompted me to cook something comforting and decidedly autumnal so apologies, it’s not entirely in keeping with the season but it’s what I needed this week. I found this oven roasted roots frittata recipe whilst thumbing through my colleagues copy of River Cottage Veg.
I am also trying to be more inventive with left overs/lunches and this is great for using up leftover bits of veg. The original recipe suggests a combination any of the following but to definitely include some sort of onion:
shallots/onions, squash/pumpkin, carrots, parsnips, celeriac, beetroot, potatoes. I ended up using carrots, parsnip, sweet potato and red onion.
