Let them drain well again and squeeze out the liquid with a wooden spoon. When the herbs have cooled, pressed the rest out the liquid with your hands. Chop them and add seasoning herbs.

Mix the eggs and the herbs and pour it all into the quiche shell. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and bake the quiche for 30 minutes at 180° C / 355° F.
