  2. Spray each filo sheet with a light coating of oil, then fold in half. Layer the folded filo in the prepared tin, evenly covering the base and sides, to make a case. Put the tin on a baking sheet.

  5. Pour the egg mixture into the quiche case, distributing the feta and vegetables evenly. Bake for 30–35 min until the filling is set.
  6. Remove the quiche from the oven and leave to cool in the tin for 5 min, then transfer to a serving plate. Cut the quiche into slices and serve hot or cold, with the salad.
