Cookery Monday - Quiche

I wasn't well for this cookery Monday so, since hubby was off for the day he took 'Cookery Monday' for me!  :O)

On the menu was:

Broccoli and Black Bean Quiche

Since my hubby took this cookery session I asked him if he'd mind typing up the blog post for me as I wasn't involved at all.
He agreed, so the following is written by my Mr.   :O)

First off there is the flour, 8 oz (which turned out to be 9), pinch of sea salt (which Quinn told me was not very nice, and tasted like the sea) , 
4oz (now 4 1/2 oz due to increased flour) butter, and finally 2 oz (now 2 1/4 oz) of water.

pre heat oven...... "200 or 2000 Daddy?". "180 will be fine".

Stir mixture with a wooden spoon...... 
but we cheated. Good old kitchen Aid!

Time to work it.

"Push Charlie" said Quinn (sigh) 
"I should be doing this bit charlie, I'm the strongest"

Of course caden politely let his brothers do
the rolling out while he grated/ate the cheese.

Roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thick
(that's 6mm for you modern people out there),
push into tray, and cut off excess.
now for the best bit....... fill lined pastry case (and table and floor) 
with dried beans.  Blind bake pastry for approx 20 mins

Mix together 225ml (8oz) of milk, and eggs
eggs. (3 altogether)

Next gather some fresh basil,
and parsley

and chop (not your fingers)

add 1 diced red onion, 1 cup of cooked
broccoli and half a can of black beans

Spread evenly in pastry case

pour in the milk and egg mixture

and let the cheese rain!

and while the quiche is baking.... play time

not sure how long later the quiche is done and we have to keep it in the
middle of the table, out of reach of little fingers.

The kitchen crew.

and here we have the fussy customers...

Who seem to like it...

6 thumbs up - gotta be good!
