Quiche Kefta Meatballs and Tomatoes Recipe

Making a delectable Kefta Tomato Quiche is a breeze, with no time wasted thanks to the convenience of ready-to-roll shortcrust dough. As for the mouth-watering kefta dumplings, they’re effortlessly prepared in just a few minutes, before being sent to the oven. The process is simple but delicious: mix ground meat with aromatic spices and form delicious dumplings.

The only preliminary cooking is to reduce the crushed tomatoes to a cumin-scented purée, which is easy to spread and delights the senses. But beneath this apparent simplicity lies a treasure trove of culinary heritage, rich in flavor, that will bring a seductive Oriental touch to your table.

You’ll be thrilled by the complex dance of flavors – a harmonious blend of subtlety and explosiveness. The tomatoes bring an intense sweetness that harmonizes perfectly with the spiciness of the kefta dumplings. It’s all brought together by a thin, crispy pastry, creating a truly balanced and satisfying dish that thrills your taste buds with every bite.


Here are the ingredients needed to make a mouth-watering quiche for 8 people:




For the quiche :

  • 1 ready-to-roll shortcrust pastry
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 large spoonfuls heavy cream (light or full-fat)
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • A good handful of grated cheese
  • Fresh coriander

For the tomato sauce :

  • 400 g crushed tomatoes
  • olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili flakes (or fresh chili, whichever you prefer)
  • Paprika
  • Salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • Finely chopped coriander

And for the Kefta meatballs :

  • 250 g to 300 g lean ground meat
  • 1 red onion
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 1/3 bunch fresh coriander
  • Ground ginger and cumin
  • Salt
  • Olive oil

Step 1: Tomato reduction

Start by reducing the crushed tomatoes in a drizzle of olive oil. Add a pinch of paprika, cumin and salt. Cover the mixture and cook until thickened. When the mixture is ready, squeeze the tomatoes to obtain a smooth purée. Set aside for later.

Step 2: Preparing the kefta meat

Chop the onion, bell pepper, chilli and coriander finely. Mix these aromatic vegetables with the minced meat, spices, a pinch of salt and a drizzle of olive oil. Mix all ingredients thoroughly to obtain a smooth kefta meat mixture. Shape the mixture into tasty meatballs.


Step 3: Assembling the minced meat quiche

Unroll the shortcrust pastry and line a baking tin with it. Spread an even layer of tomato purée over the pastry and sprinkle with freshly chopped coriander. Arrange the kefta balls evenly over the surface, leaving a little space between each one.

In another bowl, whisk the eggs with the heavy cream and season the mixture with a pinch of pepper. Gently pour this quiche mixture between the meatballs, ensuring that it fills the spaces evenly. For an extra touch of flavor, sprinkle with grated cheese and chopped coriander.

Step 4: Baking

Gently pinch the edges of the shortcrust pastry to enclose the quiche. Preheat your oven to 200°C (390°F) and place the assembled quiche in it. Bake for approximately 45 minutes, or until golden-brown.

Step 5: Serve and enjoy

Once the kefta meat quiche is ready, remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before slicing. This mouth-watering dish is now ready to enjoy! Serve it as a tasty and delicious addition to any meal.


Enjoy the rich blend of flavors in this Kefta meat quiche with friends and family. Bon appétit!
