Quiche is a dish from France. It is a savoury, open-faced pastry crust filled with eggs, cheese and vegetables. Makes for a great starter with an elaborate winter meal.

Pastry:
  • 200g plain flour, sifted
  • 100g cold unsalted butter
  • 50g walnuts, finely ground
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 large eggs, beaten

 

Filling:

  • 250g spinach leaves (stalks removed)
  • 6 - 7 new potatoes, boiled and sliced
  • 4 large eggs
  • 250ml double cream
  • 1 lemon, zest only
  • Pinch freshly grated nutmeg
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 25g parmesan, grated
  • Handful fresh thyme, chopped
  • 150g Stilton, crumbled
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

 

Pastry:

  • Tip the flour and butter into a bowl with a pinch of salt. Rub together the flour and butter until it resembles breadcrumbs and then stir in the walnuts and paprika
  • Slowly add enough of the beaten egg to bind the mixture.  Knead the pastry briefly until smooth, wrap in cling film and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes
  • Preheat the oven to 180C
  • Roll the pastry to 3mm depth and line a 25cm/10in tart tin
  • Line the pastry with greaseproof paper, fill with baking beans and bake for 10-15 minutes.  Remove the baking beans and greaseproof paper and bake for a further five minutes, or until pale golden-brown

 

Filling:

  • Wilt the spinach in a saucepan with a little water. Set aside to cool, then squeeze out the excess water and chop finely
  • Whisk the eggs in a bowl, then whisk in the cream, lemon zest, nutmeg, cayenne and parmesan. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper, then stir in the spinach and half of the thyme
  • Arrange the potato slices in the bottom of the pastry case and sprinkle over the Stilton. Spoon in the spinach mixture and sprinkle over the remaining thyme
  • Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes, or until golden-brown and just set. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool
