- 1 carrot grated
- 1 zucchini grated
- 1/2 cup corn kernels

Note re ham
To get a nice scalloped shaped shell for the quiche, I recommend using small round ham. I used a 100g packet of Don's Honey Ham from the dairy cabinet.
Spray 1/2 cup muffin tins with oil spray and place a slice of ham in 10 holes
Mix eggs and ricotta well, then add all ingredients apart from cherry tomatoes and mix.
With a soup spoon, distribute mix into ham shells.
Top with half a cherry tomato sprinkle a few flakes of Italian herbs on the tomato.
Push the tomato down into the ricotta mix with the back of the spoon.
Lightly spray top with oil.
Bake at 180*C for 35-40 mins.
Put under griller if you want more golden colour
Any left over mixture can be baked in a greased muffin tray without the ham for a yummy patty.
