Salmon and blue cheese quiche

Olive oil
1 onion chopped
100g of Parmesan cheese, grated
2 tablespoons of fresh chopped basil
8 large eggs, beaten
250 ml creme fraiche
10 black olives freshly pitted and chopped
100g of salmon sliced (I used the 100g packets of salmon from Woolworths)
100g of blue cheese

Lightly grease a 26cm round ovenproof ceramic dish and preheat the oven to 150c

Drizzle a little olive oil into a frying pan over a high heat. Add the onion and sweat for 2-3 minutes, until softened but not coloured. Tip the onion into a large bowl to cool before adding the Parmesan and basil - stir through

In a separate bowl, beat together the eggs and the creme fraiche. Pour into the onion mixture, add the olives and mix well before adding the salmon. Stir gently.

Pour the egg mixture into the buttered dish. Sprinkle the blue cheese over the mixture, the cheese should float on top. Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool to room temperature and serve with a green salad.

Serves 4
Remove the salmon to make it really vegetarian.
