Trying to organise nutritious meals for yourself and your family can be tricky, so we thought we would start sharing some of our favourite recipes from some awesome Kiwi chefs to help give you some inspiration.
Starting with this Self-crusting Spinach & Feta Quiche by Chelsea Winter. Super easy, super tasty and full of protein and healthy fats, this self-crusting quiche is the perfect meal for breastfeeding mums needing those extra nutrients to keep your milk flowing.
"This is one of my favourites quiches — not only because it’s cheesy and delicious, but also because you don’t need to worry about pre-cooking a crust. You can use whatever fresh herbs you have on hand from the list below — if you don’t have all of them, that’s okay. You can also make this gluten-free by using a gluten-free flour mix (one with a raising agent in it) if you like." - Chelsea Winter, Chef
