- whole-wheat flour – 1 cup

Filling: For the filling of your quiche you can use any vegetables, in any combination. I like to mix flavours of broccoli, red paprika and spinach, so I’m suggesting the following filling:

- broccoli – 2 cups
- red bell pepper – 1 large
- tomato – 2 mid-sized
- mushrooms – 1/2 cups
- eggs – 3 large
- your favourite herbs for garnishing
Step 1. Mix flour with ghee – it should obtain a crunchy, uniform texture. Be patient, it will take a few minutes – basically, you need to rub flour and ghee into each other.
Step 2. Whisk 2 eggs slightly and mix them with the flour and ghee. “Massage” the dough nicely, until you can roll it into a firm ball.
Step 3. Preheat your oven to 200C. Line a tart tin with the greased baking paper, roll your dough and line the tin with the pastry. Put the crust into the oven for 5 minutes, then take it out and put aside.
Step 4. Prepare the filling: fry onions. In a separate pan, fry mushrooms and the rest of the vegetables. Note that vegetables should not be overcooked, and should retain a slightly crunchy texture.
Step 5. Mix cooked filling ingredients with remaining whisked adds and fill in the crust with it. Cook in the oven for 20 minutes. Your quiche is ready when the eggs are thoroughly cooked Add any herbs for garnishing and enjoy this easy quiche with the entire family!
