French inspiration: Quiche Lorraine

These guys are good with the food, so it’s a good idea to get inspiration from the French. Quiche is always a good idea in the kitchen: fast, healthy and delish. It is basically a salty pie, so you will need to bake both the dough and the filling.

For the dough you will need 250 gr flour, 125 gr fat butter and 4-5 tbsp water. The butter needs to be warm (room temperature). Cut the butter in halves and mix it with the flour and the water in a bowl. Once the dough is done, you need to put it in the fridge for 30 minutes. Meanwhile you can work on preparing the filling.

For the filling, you have an infinite combination of ingredients. One of my fav’s include the following:

  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tbsp of heavy cream
  • grated goat cheese
  • parmigiano
  • mushrooms*
  • spinach*
  • spring onion*
  • sun-dried tomatoes
  • fresh basil
  • spices

In a frying pan put a scoop of butter and a tbsp of olive oil. Chop the onions and the mushrooms and give them a quick fry. Add the spinach leaves and when everything softens, you are done. Now you can mix all the ingredients and you will have your delicious filling.

After the dough has cooled off, remove it from the fridge and spread a sheet on a round pie tray. Poke it with a toothpick and put it in the oven for 10-15 minutes (without filling) until the dough becomes golden. Remove from the oven and pour the filling on the golden bed. Put it in the oven for 25-20 minutes at 180 Celsius.
