Veg Corn Quiche / Savory Tart

A light crumbly Savory Tart with a veg corn filling in a creamy béchamel sauce and topped with melting cheese…Mmm need I say more!

An absolute crowd pleaser and an instant hit in any party I make! 🙂
It can be served warm out of the oven, but tastes great even at room temperature. Serve it as an appetizer or make it a meal by teaming it with a light tangy salad!

  1. Brilliant!

  2. One question Ruchi. Are beans and lentils soaked/cooked or just laid as it is?

  3. Ok got my answer in your other post how to make the crust. Lentils, beans are for blind baking. Silly me 😉
