HOW TO MAKE A QUICHE

This goat's cheese and watercress quiche was extremely light and fluffy. An occasional treat and delicious with a side salad. If you have a lot of weight to lose, like we did, why not lose it eating food you love? If you don't like goat's cheese you could make a quiche lorraine, using cooked bacon pieces and cheddar/gruyere. Experiment with your favourite flavours.

GOAT'S CHEESE AND WATERCRESS QUICHE
PASTRY BASE
175g plain flour
100g butter - room temperature
1 egg, beaten
2 tbsp full fat milk (or water)
****
FILLING
1 medium onion or 2 shallots, chopped
2 tbsp red onion chutney
60g watercress
100g soft crumbly goat's cheese
salt/pepper
4 medium eggs
100ml full fat milk
100ml double cream
****
Begin by making the pastry. Mix the flour and butter until it looks like breadcrumbs, then add the beaten egg. Instead of using water, I used full fat milk to bring the mixture together into a dough. You can use water if you prefer. I found the pastry was very 'short' using milk.
Line a 23cm lightly greased flan dish with the pastry, letting the pastry overlap the tin. Pierce the base using a fork.
Scrunch some greaseproof paper then open out and line the pastry case. Cover with CERAMIC BAKING BEANS then place in the oven at 180ºC for around 20 minutes. Leave to cool slightly and trim the edges of the pastry.
Brush base and sides with a little beaten egg. Brush the blind baked pastry case with red onion chutney. 
Lightly fry a chopped onion or shallots and spread these around the pastry base. Wilt the watercress in the frying pan and place into the flan, then crumble the goat's cheese on top. Season with salt and pepper.
Mix together the eggs,  milk and double cream. Season lightly with salt and pepper and pour into the flan.
Place in the oven at 180ºC until cooked - around 35-40 minutes.
