Method

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Boil the broccoli for 2 mins, drain, then rinse under cold water. Set aside.
  2. Unroll the pastry on its paper and roll out to make a slightly wider rectangle about 5mm thick. Transfer to a deep 20 x 30cm rectangular baking tin, easing it into the sides. Roughly crimp the edges and prick the base all over with a fork.
  3. Line the pastry case with nonstick baking paper, fill with baking beans, then blind bake for 15-20 mins until the edges are lightly golden. Remove the paper and beans and bake for another 5-10 mins until the pastry is dry and golden.
  4. Meanwhile, melt half the butter with the oil in a saucepan or frying pan over a low heat and cook the spring onions and garlic for 5 mins until very soft and lightly golden. Remove from the heat.
  5. Beat the eggs and yolks with the cream and herbs in a jug. Season well and stir in the pecorino.
  6. Spread the spring onions in the base of the tart case and pour over the egg mixture. Arrange the broccoli on top, crumble over the feta, then bake for 35-40 mins until golden and just set. Cool for at least 15 mins, or set aside to cool completely.
  7. Meanwhile, boil the potatoes for 10-15 mins until tender. Drain well, then tip back into the pan; add the remaining butter, season and crush lightly with the back of a spoon. Serve alongside the quiche with a green salad, if you like.
