Earthy Quiche


I love this quiche and I bake it regularly. It has become a really good breakfast food for hungry teenagers - it keeps them going all day!

I start by browning some onion and garlic, perhaps some bacon or sweet potato cubes. You can add anything you like that needs pre-cooking.


I whisk 4 eggs, some corn kernels, chopped spinach, half a cup of self-raising flour, half a cup of milk,  some grated cheese... you get the idea, basically anything you have on hand.


I add  lots or rosemary at this point. It is my secret ingredient to give the quiche a really earthy deep flavour.


Stir everything together and pour it into a glass pie plate. I have used a sheet of frozen pastry under this one to hold everything together, although you may find it is okay without the pastry.

Bake for 50 minutes at 180 degrees. Slice into 8 pieces when cooked.

My secret ingredient is to leave out the pastry but add some SR flour (from memory it's about 1/4-1/2 a cup) and mix it into the milk and egg mix. Add the rest of the ingredients and it sinks to the bottom with some of the egg and milk and makes a pastry in itself. Since cutting down the gluten, I've effectively made it with buckwheat flour (also an earthy flour) and probably GF flour although I don't specifically remember. :)

I've also made sweet quiche where you use the egg and milk but add peaches or pears or apples, cherries etc and a little sweetener of choice. It's unusual but tasty. :)
