Broccoli Quiche






I've been dreaming of a cheesy quiche with buttery crust for a while already. So I was pretty happy when I finally decided to make one for myself. Yes, just for myself. Since I live alone, I have a privilege to eat the entire quiche. Guess what? By the end of the day there was just one small peace left. Yep, it was that good. How can something be bad with broccoli? And cheese? Oh, and I cut broccoli into large chunks and I think it made the quiche look quite beautiful. This recipe is really easy so you won't spend much time preparing this. Enjoy!


Broccoli Quiche

Dough:
125g spelt flour (or all-purpose)
Salt
75g butter, cold
1 tbsp cold water

Filling:
400g broccoli, chopped into chunks
1 small onion, finely chopped
150g cheese, grated
3 eggs, lightly beaten
240ml Milk
Salt
Pepper

1) Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Lightly grease and dust with flour a 18cm round baking dish. Set aside.

2) To make the crust, mix together flour and salt. Cut in the butter (to save my time, I sometimes use grater). Add 1 tablespoon of water and, using your hands, knead the dough just until it comes into a ball. Wrap in a plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes.

3) Take out of the fridge and roll into a circle. Press into the prepared pan (use your fingertips). Make a few holes with a fork in the dough and place in refrigerator while you prepare the filling.

4) To make the filling, mix together milk, eggs, salt and pepper. In a small saucepan, lightly fry the onions until they soften a little bit. 

5) Take the dough out of the fridge. Sprinkle some cheese on it, then the onions, and half of the broccoli. Sprinkle more cheese, top with broccoli, and finally, sprinkle the remaining cheese (I like to reserve a lot of cheese for the top). Pour the milk mixture on top. Do not mix. 

6) Bake for 35-40 minutes or until set and golden brown on top. Let cool at least 10 minutes before serving.

  1. This quiche looks absolutely perfect! I like your plan, to make one early in the morning and then eat it all day long...I would totally do that if I could! I've never tried spelt flour before, but I'm pretty sure using spelt means that this quiche is super healthy and good for you, right...?

    1. Thanks! Yep, Spelt is quite healthier. And the whole quiche doesn't have too much flour and cheese so I think this is really good for you!
