Pumpkin, Goat’s Cheese & Red Onion Quiche Recipe

This vegetarian quiche is such a delicious combination of flavours. I just love pairing goats cheese and butternut pumpkin inside a crispy spelt pastry case. It’s my go-to for parties or a picnic as it’s delicious both hot and cold.

Pumpkin, Goat’s Cheese & Red Onion Quiche Recipe

This delicious vegetarian quiche offers a stunning summer dish, with flavour to boot. Filled with pumpkin, goat cheese and red onion, enjoy yours fresh out of the oven or chilled from the fridge — it’s the ultimate picnic feast!


Prep time

Cook time



  • 400g butternut pumpkin, diced into 2cm chunks
  • 1 red onion, cut into eighths
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 1 tbsp thyme leaves
  • 50g goats cheese
  • 6 sun-dried tomatoes
  • 3 large eggs
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • ½ cup milk (of your choice)
  • Pastry
  • 200g wholemeal spelt flour
  • 60g chilled butter or ghee, cut into cubes
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 50-60mL chilled water


  • Pre-heat the oven to 180°C. On a baking tray, toss the pumpkin and red onion in the honey and olive oil. Season with sea salt and bake for 15 mins.
  • In a food processor, mix the flour, butter and sea salt on a high speed until a crumb forms. Gradually add the water until the pastry comes together into a firm dough (that holds together but doesn’t stick to your fingers). If the weather is warm, put it into the fridge for 10 mins before rolling out.
  • Grease a springform quiche tin and roll the pastry out onto a piece of baking paper so that it will cover the base and sides of the tin. Invert it into the tin and trim the sides and prick the base 4 or 5 times with a fork. With the baking paper on top, fill with pastry weights and blind bake for 10 mins on the bottom shelf of the oven.
  • Once the pastry is done, add the roast pumpkin, thyme leaves, goats cheese and sun-dried tomatoes to the pastry case.
  • Whisk the eggs, pepper and milk together in a small jug. Pour over the vegetables and bake for 20 mins or until the egg is set in the middle of the quiche.
  • Enjoy with a leafy green salad.
