Dairy free quiche with swiss chard and tomatoes

Quiche with swiss chard and tomato 52

I really like making quiche as it is easy to make and can be eaten hot or cold which is convenient. In order to vary from the traditional quiche Lorraine, I decided to make a quiche with swiss chard and tomatoes. This recipe is designed for being vegan but in bracket, you will find all the alternative for having a non vegan quiche.

How to make Dairy free quiche with swiss chard and tomatoes?

For making the shortcrust dough:

  • In a large bowl mix corn flour, self-raising flour and butter
  • Knead the dough with fingers, before adding water (start with 20ml and increase if necessary)
  • Once the dough has formed into a nice ball, wrap in cling film and let cool in the fridge for 30mins

! If you have a breadmaker, it is even quicker, you put all the ingredient in the machine and select the dough program

For making the vegan quiche:

  • Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees
  • Wash carefully all the Swiss chard and the tomatoes
  • Then split the Swiss chard stems from the leaves

! The split needs to be done as the stems need more time to be cooked

  • Slice in small pieces both the stems and the leaves
  • In a pan, heat (at medium heat) a tablespoon of olive oil, when the oil is hot, cook while stirring the Swiss chard stems for 5 minutes
  • Then add the Swiss chard leaves and continue to cook for 3 minutes

! The Swiss chard leaves are cooked when they are all shrunken

  • Cut the tomatoes into square pieces
  • Roll out the dough into the mold and bake for 10mins
  • Spread pre-cooked Swiss chard stems and leaves and the square pieces of tomatoes into the pre-baked dough
  • Add the nutritional yeast and the grated vegan cheese along with salt and pepper
  • In a separate bowl, mix corn flour/eggs with cream and milk before pouring on top of the quiche
  • Bake for a further 30-40 mins
