Recipe of the Month 

Walnut, stilton and broccoli quiche

For the pastry:

200g plain flour, sifted
100g butter at room temperature
a pinch of salt
a touch of ice cold water to bind

  For the filling:
Small head of broccoli, chopped into florets
150ml single cream
100g Stilton cheese, crumbled
100g mature Cheddar cheese, grated
1 tbsp butter
4 eggs
75g walnuts
Salt & pepper

  To make the pastry case:
Cut the butter into small pieces and add to the flour and salt. Rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add enough cold water just to bring the mixture together. This can vary from a couple of drops to a couple of tablespoons. Wrap the pastry in clingfilm and place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface. Line a lightly greased 9-inch loose-bottomed flan tin with baking paper. Place the rolled out pastry in the pan and gently push the dough into all the edges to cover the tin. Lightly prick the pastry all over with a fork and cover with a piece of baking paper and a layer of baking beans (rice or dried beans work just as well). Put the flan tin into the fridge for around 30 minutes to rest.Remove the flan tin from the fridge and place in an oven preheated to 170 C. After around 10 minutes remove the baking paper and beans. Put the flan tin back in the oven until the pastry case is a light golden brown. Remove the case from the oven and allow to cool.

  For the filling:
Preheat the oven to 190 C.  Heat the butter in a frying pan and fry the broccoli until just tender. In a large bowl beat the eggs and add the cream, stilton, walnuts, broccoli, and salt and pepper. Mix well. Sprinkle the Cheddar over the base of the pastry case and pour over the egg and cream mixture. Bake for 35-40 minutes until set. Leave to cool for five minutes.

On the Lookout

The People’s Cookbook

We are still looking for recipes for The People’s Cookbook. We want to collect recipes that reflect The People’s Supermarket values of sharing, seasonality and reinvention. We want it to tell our story and illustrate the diversity of our members. Please send your favourite recipe with a brief explanation of why it is a special recipe to you and any photos to tpscookbook@gmail.com or fill out a form in the members area.

Shelf stacker (Paid Position)

Shelf stacker wanted. £6.50ph 2-6pm Mon-Fri, 4 week contract, experience pref, immediate start. Any takers? andy@thepeoplessupermarket.org

Plastic bags – You’ve got them. We want them

You keep them in your cupboard ready to be re-used – good on you! But you forget to take them to the store to buy goods, whoops! Going to have to grab new ones this time. Whoops, and next time! Before you know you have a cupboard bursting with carrier bags at home. Now you need to throw some away. Sound familiar?
Those of you who have had the opportunity to shop at The People’s Supermarket will be aware of the bowl by the tills full of used plastic bags which our lovely customers and members bring in for future customers to use. We hope that by doing this we can reduce the amount that is put into land-fill.

We do buy in bio-degradable plastic bags but they’re expensive and still not great for the environment… So, if you have a stash of used plastic bags at home that are sitting there doing nothing – why not pop them into the shop? This way a full bowl of re-usable carrier bags is available right where you need them – and we won’t have to charge for a new one. Win/win situation!
