Gluten-free Quiche

Bacon and Parmesan Quiche (front),
 Spinach and Feta Quiche (back right)
OK I just gave you the brownies - now here's the quiches - these are what I made to take to the World Lupus Day barbecue on Saturday.

These are small quiches - made with the disposable foil pie dishes - I find using a full-size flan tray the filling does not cook through so evenly.


(This amount of pastry makes two quiches in the small foil pie dishes.)
1 1/4 cups gluten-free plain flour
pinch salt
100g dairy-free margarine, softened
1 egg

Bacon and Parmesan Filling
(fills one case)
4 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup light lactose-free cream
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
50g bacon (no fat) finely diced

Spinach and Feta Filling
(fills one case)
4 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup light lactose-free cream
50g feta, finely diced
50g frozen spinach -defrosted, drained and squeezed

  1. Spray foil pie dishes with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Sift flour and salt into mixing bowl. Add margarine (in spoonfuls rather than one big glob.)
  3. In my Kenwood Chef, I use the k-beater and mix on minimum speed. In whatever mixer or food processor you use, go for a slow speed, process until the margarine is spread evenly through the flour and has the consistency of breadcrumbs.
  4. Add egg. Use a pulse (if you have it - otherwise turn mixer on and off quickly), until the ingredients are brought together.
  5. Divide the mix into 2 parts. Knead each very lightly, before rolling between two sheets of baking paper. Line the pie dishes with pastry. Prick with a fork.
  6. Refrigerate pie cases for half an hour.
  7. Preheat oven to 180 deg C.
  8. Bake pastry cases for 20 minutes.  Increase temperature to 240 deg C for five minutes. 
  9. Remove cases from oven, reduce oven temperature back to 180 deg C.
  10. To make each filling - put all ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir together.
  11. Pour fillings into cases, and return to oven.
  12. Bake 40 minutes.
  13. Quiches are good served hot or cold.

These are gluten free and low lactose. (Cheese is low in lactose.)
