Ingredients

  • 150g Nuttelex or dairy-free spread
  • 1 cup (160g) wholemeal plain flour
  • 1/2 cup (75g) plain flour
  • 1 Coles Australian Free Range Egg yolk
  • 1 tbs chilled water
  • 1/4 cup (65g) Coles Italia Basilico Basil Pesto
  • 200g mixed tomatoes
  • 4 small vine-ripened tomatoes, thickly sliced crossways
  • 75g light ricotta
  • 1/4 cup (40g) pitted kalamata olives, halved
  • 6 Coles Australian Free Range Eggs
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) milk
  • 1/4 cup (20g) finely grated parmesan

Method

STEP 1

Place the Nuttelex or dairy-free spread and combined flour in a food processor and process until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add the egg yolk and water and process until the dough just comes together. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead until just smooth. Shape into a disc. Cover with plastic wrap. Place in the fridge for 15 mins to rest.

STEP 2

Preheat oven to 200°C. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface to a 3mm-thick disc. Line a 24cm (base measurement) fluted tart tin with removable base with the pastry. Place in the fridge for 30 mins to rest.

STEP 3

Line pastry with baking paper and fill with pastry weights or rice. Bake for 10 mins. Remove paper and weights or rice. Continue baking for 8-10 mins or until light golden.

STEP 4

Reduce oven to 150°C. Spread pastry base with pesto. Arrange the combined tomato over the pesto. Spoon over the ricotta and sprinkle with the olive.

STEP 5

Whisk the eggs, milk and parmesan in a jug. Season. Pour into the tart case. Bake for 25-30 mins or until the egg mixture is just set. Cool slightly.

STEP 6

Transfer quiche to a serving plate. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Serve with baby rocket leaves and shaved parmesan
