Vegetarian Quiche


I'm not much of a savory baker, but this #quiche is literally like biting into a slice of heaven!

The buttery whole wheat flour crust melts in your mouth

It is a lot simpler than it looks, so I really do encourage you to give it a try!



Preheat the oven to 180°C


Ingredients


For the crust

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

100 gm cold butter (cut into cubes)

1/2 tsp salt

1 egg yolks

1 tbsp fresh cream


Method


•Blitz the flour and salt along with the cold butter in a mixer until it resembles crumbs that come together

•Add the egg yolk and fresh cream to this and make a dough.

•Refrigerate for 30 minutes before rolling it out between 2 sheets of parchment paper and then gently place it in your pie tin. Press it down well!

•Poke the bottom a few times with a fork and blind bake it for 25 minutes


In the meanwhile, get the filling prepared




Ingredients

For the filling


3 eggs + the one white left over from the yolk used in the crust

1/2 cup fresh cream

1 tomato finely chopped

A handful of coriander (because I love coriander)

Salt and pepper to taste

** you can add whatever you like into the filling. Ham, cooked chicken, any other veggie


Method


Mix the ingredients together well, pour into the baked crust and bake again for about 25 minutes


Ta-da!
