Cakes are amazing, but we aren't always in the mood for something sweet. When something savoury seems more up your street, there are plenty of tarts that will warm your heart. There are all kinds of savoury tarts, from vegetarian options like an onion tart to variations on just about every kind of quiche imaginable. In case you didn't know, a quiche is literally just a fancy word for a savoury open tart or flan consisting of a pastry crust which is then filled with eggs, milk or cream and then a tasty filling. Whether that filling is meat, fish, veggies or a combination of the three, you'll find one to suit your tastes. They're a little like pies, but without a top. Not sure where to begin? No need to egg us on. We've already put together a pretty impressive list.
1. Onion Tart
What a tart to start! Onion adds flavour to just about everything, and tarts are no exception. Resto BoBo in Melbourne understand how best to harness the flavours onion brings to the table by using other ingredients that are only highlighted by its use. Their Tarte Flambee in the Smoked Bacon, Gruyere Cheese and Onion edition is absolutely top-notch, and we're certain you'll agree. We hate to sound cliche but seriously... yummmm, bacon!
2. Braised Leeks, Goat's Cheese & Thyme Quiche
Looking for something a little fancy? This beautifully vegetarian quiche is full of herbs and cheeses to give you all the flavour you need. The Braised Leeks, Goat's Cheese & Thyme quiche comes to your mouth courtesy of Eugene's, which can be found in Sydney. Quiches are home-made on site and every effort is made to make them exciting and unique. We warn you - this one's super addictive.
3. Smoked Salmon Quiche
Representing the fish cohort is the Smoked Salmon Quiche. Salmon is not only good for you, it's also absolutely delicious - so with a quiche of this kind you cannot go wrong. Try the four-inch version of Smoked Salmon Quiche for yourself by placing an order with Pane Vino Prosciutteria in Sydney. The ingredients all blend together perfectly to provide quite the agreeable experience!
4. Spinach & Feta Quiche
People who say that vegetarians don't get their protein have clearly never had anything with spinach and egg combined! The Spinach & Feta Quiche from Perth's Cafe des Delices does an especially good job of leaving you satisfied while leaving out the meat. It's so, so good!
5. Quiche Lorraine
Arguably the most popular kind of quiche around, you might say that we've saved the best 'til last! Quiche Lorraine is associated with smoked bacon, onion and plenty of cheese, and when combined with the flaky cultured butter pastry, it's incredibly rich and moreish. To sample an authentic version, order from Sonoma at Bondi Beach. Get in quick! This baby sells out fast.
