Recipe: Cheese & Mushroom Quiche

OK Foods Gansbaai

INGREDIENTS

For the base:

  • 65 g butter
  • 110 g white flour
  • 125 g cheddar cheese, grated
  • 30 ml water

For the filling:

  • 45 g butter
  • 15 ml sunflower oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 punnet of button mushrooms, sliced
  • 20 g white flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • half a cup of cream
  • a pinch of salt
  • a pinch of ground nutmeg
  • a cup of grated cheddar cheese

METHOD

  • Put the flour in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the butter and rub together using your hands until you have a breadcrumb consistency.
  • Mix through the grated cheese and the water and combine to form a dough.
  • Grease a 20cm flan dish then press the dough onto the base and sides.
  • Pop the dish into the fridge to chill for about 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 200°C and blind-bake the base for about 8 minutes or until golden.

For the Filling

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Heat a pan, add the butter and oil and once the butter has melted, add the chopped onion.
  • Fry the onion until soft and golden, then add the sliced mushrooms.
  • Fry for about 5 minutes then stir through the flour and cook it through – 2 minutes should do the trick.
  • Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
  • In the meantime, whisk together the eggs and cream.
  • Stir through half the grated cheese.
  • Add the onions and mushrooms, season to taste and stir through the nutmeg.
  • Pour the quiche custard onto the pre-baked base and sprinkle the remaining cheddar on top.
  • Pop the quiche into the oven and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until cooked through and golden.

OK FOOD TIP

If you’re craving some meat, fry up half a packet of chopped up streaky bacon with the onions and mushrooms
