Makes 1 large quiche
Ingredients for the pastry
100g Brown rice flour
50g Corn flour
50g Ground brown flax seed
1 level tsp Guar gum
Generous pinch of dried red chilli flakes
Generous pinch black onion seeds
Sprig of rosemary
Pinch of salt
Pinch of cracked black pepper
10 mls whole milk
Tapioca flour for dusting
Ingredients for the filling
Asparagus (approximately 400g)
Pot of crème fraiche
½ tsp salt
½ tsp cracked black pepper
2 cloves garlic (crushed)
Bag of spinach
60g cheddar (grated)
200g brie (cut into fairly thin slices)
1 handful toasted pine nuts
Method for the pastry
Firstly, brush the tin with melted butter.
Mix all of the pastry ingredients except the eggs and milk in a food processor until the mixture has the consistency of breadcrumbs. Then add the eggs and milk and blend in the food processor until a soft dough is formed.
The pastry is quite delicate, so is best pressed into the tin rather than rolled.
Dust your hands and work surface liberally with tapioca flour then press the pastry evenly into the base and up the sides of the tin, making sure you have no holes.
Blind bake for about 10 minutes until slightly golden.
Method for the filling
Trim the asparagus & blanch in boiling water for 3 minutes, then drain.
Add the spinach to a pan with the butter and crushed garlic and cook until wilted.
Put the eggs and crème fraiche into a measuring jug and mix, then add a pinch of salt and pepper and whisk until the eggs are well beaten and the mixture is bubbly.
Scatter the grated cheddar over the pastry and place the cooked asparagus on top of the cheese.
Then spoon out the cooked spinach evenly and arrange the Brie slices on top.
Sprinkle the pine nuts over this and then carefully pour the egg/milk mixture over the filling, stopping approximately ½ cm from the top of the pastry.
Bake at 180°C for around 35 – 40 minutes
Enjoy warm or cold!
