Ramp, carrot, and chicken mini quiche recipe

So here we are. It’s been a weekend of

gardening, enjoying lunch on the patio, watching the first

peonies bloom, going to Yann Tiersen’s concert (such a wonderful event that one), choosing a

cherry tree to plant, baking

pizza, tossing together a spring-like

pea shoot salad–and then preparing these

ramp, carrot and chicken mini quiches with my recently purchased bunch of

ramps.

In truth, the tartlets were initially meant to be sneaked inside our picnic basket on the way to the beach. But that very plan failed. We ate the tartlets minutes after they had just come out of the oven. The aroma they left in the kitchen while baking was too intoxicating– and then we quickly grew hungry after our morning spent working and playing in the garden.

Ramps

I used leftovers of a

chicken roasted a few days before. Grated a

carrot. Sauteed the vegetables in

olive oil with

ground coriander and

garlic. Added

fresh parsley and prepared a small appareil made of

eggs,

cream and

Pecorino cheese. I will leave it to you to tell me what you think.

This quiche recipe is a pretty exciting one! Lulu could not stop eating the crust, more precisely. And while she also enjoyed the rest, oh the crust! We found the tartlets irresistible.

So much so that after a first batch of four, I baked another one. With the hope of another picnic.

I still have another bunch of ramps in the fridge. I know already that what will come next will be inspired by some of your lovely suggestions.

Thank you for that!

This crust has become one of my favorite everyday crust whenever I bake a savory tart. It’s made of a combination of millet, teff and sweet rice flour. Nutritious. With character. I also added poppyseeds for fun and a different twist on a favorite.
