A light and healthy broccoli / salmon / yoghurt quiche

Last week I prepared a quiche with broccoli, salmon, dill and a yoghurt base for a few of my sporty friends: it was light, healthy, tasty and full of proteins and vitamins! I had had once a broccoli and salmon quiche and thought it was very good. I had some leftover smoked salmon in my fridge so I used that  (but it also works with fresh salmon!) and pre-boiled the broccoli a bit so it wouldn't be too crunchy. Finally I added some dill (aneth) because I really like that with salmon.

Unlike other quiches I made before such as the Quiche Lorraine and the Onion Pie I replaced most of the cream and milk with yoghurt which made it much lighter and also gave it an interesting taste and texture. The broccoli-salmon quiche is excellent both cold and warm and it was still good after 3 days in the fridge. It's a nice recipe for lunch and dinner, easy to reproduce, and makes for a surprising quiche!

Recipe for a big broccoli-salmon quiche:

1 pâte brisée (shortcrust):
240 g flour
120-140 g cold butter
1 dl cold water
1 tsp salt

2 heads of broccoli
a few slices of smoked salmon
3 eggs
3 dl yoghurt
0.75 dl cream
0.75 dl milk

Prepare the dough ahead of time as shown here and refrigerate it (the longer the better). Fold it out onto a buttered and floured pie form, prick it well, and pre-cook 10 min at 200 C.
Cut up broccoli in big cubes and pre-cook them in water (transfer them to cold water, heat it up and stop when the water starts to boil). Slice the smoked salmon in small pieces (2x2cm).
In a bowl, mix yoghurt and cream, add eggs one by one, mix with a fork and add some chopped aneth/dill and some pepper (no real need for salt since smoked salmon is already very salty).
Spread the broccoli cubes on the cooled down pre-cooked dough. Distribute the salmon pieces and cover the pie with the egg-yoghurt mix. Bake for 30 min at 200 C.
