This spinach, goat’s cheese and Prosciutto quiche makes a lovely lunch or light dinner in summer. In what is quite a classic combo, the salty goat’s cheese and ham are matched by the sweetness of the caramelised onions. You could use any savoury shortcrust pastry pastry (or buy it ready-made, of course). I used Michel Roux’s flan pastry recipe. I used skimmed milk, which keeps it quite light. If you want a richer filling for your quiche, you can add cream instead of the milk, or a use a mixture of both.

Ground elder is a perennial plant that was introduced to this island by the Romans. It’s now considered a weed in the gardening world, but happily it’s edible, so get foraging and kill two birds with one stone.
It has quite a distinctive, earthy flavour that goes well with a salty goat’s cheese and sweet caramelised onions in these individual tarts. I didn’t manage to get a decent photo; I must have been too eager to get this chap into my tummy! I served these with vegetables and mashed potato for dinner, but you could easily have the tarts as a starter for a bigger meal.

Palmiers are so easy to make, but I haven’t tried savoury ones up until now. It took me about 5 seconds to decide what fillings to use – sweet caramelised onions, salty parmesan cheese and creamy goat’s cheese go so well together! These can be really simple, if you use ready-made puff pastry (obscenely easy if you use ready-rolled!), and you can use caramelised onions from a jar. Of course, if you’re looking to put a bit more effort into it (and get more credit!) you can make the puff pastry and caramelise the onions yourself. I think the tangy red onion chutney I made back in December would work a treat.

This is a quick, simple pasta dish: cheesy, lemony comfort food. I adapted the recipe from In Erika’s Kitchen (mostly just added thyme). If you like a refreshing, citrussy pasta dish, this is great. It would probably be particularly nice in the summer-time.
