Gluten Free/ Pizzas & Quiches

Spinach and Goats Cheese Quiche (Gluten Free)

I have started to try cooking with all purpose Gluten Free flour as a change from my usual almonds and coconut flour.  The taste results are pretty much like regular pastry made with white flour and I suspect that I could fool a lot of non Gluten Free eaters.However, handling it is a bit more fiddly as it tends to break up so you need to be very gentle with it.  I made the dough in a food processor but you could also make this recipe by hand if you so wished.  I brought my Gluten free flour from the Organic store but also noticed it in Geant (for the Dubai readers).   I do love a quiche and now shall start playing with various fillings!

INGREDIENTS

225g Gluten Free flour

100g butter

1 egg

FILLING

1 onion, chopped

1 tblspn oil

100g spinach

3 eggs

1/4 cup creme fraiche

100g goats cheese (cut/crumbled into pieces)

1/2 tspn grated nutmeg

salt and pepper

1 egg for glazing the pastry

METHOD

  • Put the flour and a pinch of salt in a food processor and add the butter.   Blitz gently until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs.
  • Add the egg and about 1-2 tablespoon of cold water to form a soft dough.
  • Remove the dough, wrap in clingfilm and chill for at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F degrees.
  • Knead the pastry and roll it out to line a 20cm loose-bottomed flan tin.  Brush the base and sides with egg.
  • Put the flan tin on a baking sheet and bake the pastry blind for 5 minutes.  Remove from oven.
  • Reduce the oven to 180C/350F degrees
  • Make the filling by frying the onion in the oil until just soft, add the spinach and cook until just wilted.  Season with nutmeg
  • Beat the eggs and creme fraiche and stir in the spinach mixture and goat’s cheese.  Season to taste
  • Pour the filling into the pastry case and bake for 25-30 minutes or until lightly set.
  • Eat and enjoy!
