This gluten-free crustless quiche makes a lovely light lunch for a summer’s day.
Packed with protein from the Quorn mince and colour from the fresh vegetables, the lack of crust not only cuts down on fat, but makes the dish gluten-free

• 150g of Quorn mince
• 180g of hard cheese, preferably vegetarian, grated

• 1 small red onion, finely sliced
• salt, pepper to taste
1 Preheat the oven 200°C/gas mark 6.

4 Continue beating and add the Quorn mince, carrots, courgette, pepper, cheese and thyme.
5 Mix well and pour the mixture into a buttered ovenproof dish. Place the sliced red onions on top.
