Recipe's preparation

    SHORTCRUST PASTRY (wholemeal)
  1. 1)  Mix pastry ingredients on speed 4 for 10 seconds.

     

    2)  Roll onto Thermomat and refridgerate until needed.

     

    3)  Roll out into 0.5 cm thickness, poke a couple of holes into base and blind bake for 15 minutes at 180 degrees celsius fan forced.

  2. CARAMELISED LEEK & ONION
  3. 1)  Saute leek and onion with butter and oil for 6.5 minutes on reverse, speed 0.5.

     

    2)  Add vinegar, sugar and water and continue to cook for 3 minutes/reverse/speed 0.5 with MC off to help aid evaporation.  If there's still too much liquid add mixing bowl contents into small frypan on med-high heat to reduce the liquid and caramelise the leek and onion until it is semi dry (similar to a jam).  Set aside.

  4. QUICHE
  5. 1)  Mix quiche ingredients on speed 4 for 10 seconds.

  6. TO ASSEMBLE
  7. Spread the caramelised leek and onion over the base of pastry and then pour the quiche mixture over.  Bake at 180 degrees celsius fan forced for 30 mins.

     

    You can also sprinkle a bit of grated cheese on top of the quiche during the last 10 minutes of baking.

Tip

The husband requested I add bacon, so I sprinkled bacon pieces on top of the leek and onion jam and then poured over the quiche mixture.

    tmixmic: I also wondered that - I'm taking a punt at 100o and monitoring. I'm not a good cook and so I hope this works!

    When you say sauté...... Should I know what temperature setting that is? because it's not stated.

    At step 1 of the leek and caramelised onion, I added 1 zucchini to the leek and onion, 10 seconds on speed 4 to chop all ingredients. I did need to use a fry pan to brown and dry off the ingredients.

    I also added about 30g of crumbled feta on top of the pie before baking. Tasty grated cheese on top for last 10 minutes of baking.

    It took an hour to bake. 10 minutes to cool before cutting.

    It was delicious! Pastry was perfect!

    I think next time I would only add half a zucchini.
