Tomato + Basil Quiche

Monday, August 13, 2012

Because we love international food, and because my Momma is cool like that, we decided to make meals for some of the many countries to eat each night as we watched the Olympics. Despite the amazingness of the egg rolls on China night, France night was my favorite. Because let's face it - I'm in love with quiche.









Ingredients:
filling:
-1 small onion, finely chopped
-2 medium tomatoes, 1 chopped 1 sliced
-10-12 basil leaves, chopped
-1 cup rice, white or brown
-2 garlic cloves, crushed
-6 eggs
-1 1/2 cup milk
-salt and pepper

crust:
-1 cup white flour
-1 cup wheat flour
-2/3 cup shortening or butter
-1 tsp salt
-6-8 tbsp cold water

Directions:
1. Prepare all vegetables and ingredients.
2. In mixing bowl, combine both flours and salt.
3. Using a pastry blender, cut in the shortening/butter.
4. Add 4 tbsp of cold water, mix to form a dough ball. Add remaining tablespoons 1 at a time, until dough is the right consistancy.
5. Lay dough out on long strip of plastic wrap, and lay long strip on top.
6. Roll out dough, and place in pre-greased baking dish. (Place baking dish in freezer for a few minutes for best results)
7. Load crust with vegetables, rice, and onions.
8. Whisk together eggs, cheese, garlic and milk.
9. Pour into crust, on top of veggies.
10. Bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes. Serve warm.

(Serves 8)

  1. We love quiche around here. Our all-time fav is crab quiche. So good and fairly easy to make. And I had to laugh because we always make two for our family as well :)

    1. Yep, basically you just lay out a large strip of plastic wrap on a cutting board. Lay your dough on top of that. Lay another large sheet of plastic wrap on top of your dough. Then roll out the dough, with the plastic wrap still above and beneath it. This makes the rolling out process a lot easier. :)

      Hopefully that helps! :)
