    I have adapted the cous cous cake recipe to make a savoury quiche...

    Free on green (depending on your choice of filling)

    4oz cous cous
    2 eggs
    half a tub of quark

    Fillings to suit your taste. I used:
    2 spring onions
    cherry tomatoes (halved)
    broccoli florets (cut up quite small)
    salt and pepper
    herbs to taste


    Put the cous cous into a small bowl or pan and cover with boiling water. Use just enough water to cover it by just a wee bit. Cover with the lid and set aside for 10 mins.

    Beat the eggs, mix in the quark til smooth and stir in your filling stuff.
    *optional - stir in 1 HEa of cheese into the mixture.

    Stir in the cous cous and place in a microwaveable dish. Cook for 8-10 mins depending on the power of your microwave.

    Serve warm or cold. Nice with a big leafy salad.

    This was my first attempt at this recipe. Lots of fillings would work in it. It's a nice texture (as long as you like cous cous!) but it does need plenty of flavour otherwise it will be quite bland.
    I only used half a tub of quark as it's what I had in the fridge, however I do think it could take a bit more, 3/4 or even a full tub. You might get a more 'wet' mixture, but probably a more quiche-like texture after cooking.
