Leek Quiche Recipe: Seasonal Cooking

Leeks are currently in season. Cooking with seasonal vegetable helps us buy our food responsibly as seasonal vegetables do not have to travel so far, thus reducing our carbon footprint. For this reason, we're making Leek Quiche!

Filling


Sauce

  • 200 g whipped cream
