Sometimes people get distracted by all that healthy living thing and start confusing it with being vegan, raw foodist or something else. But in fact, being a vegan doesn’t mean that you eat healthy foods all the time and the healthy living lifestyle does not exclude all animal products. It just limits them in a way, meaning it’s definitely not healthy to eat meat 3 times per day, but it is healthy to eat organic meat from a grass fed animal 2 or 3 times per week… I know, I should write about it soon and I will, that’s a promise :)
For now, why do I publish a recipe with goat cheese and eggs in it here? Well, when I was asked to share a few healthy recipes with the readers of GoodFood magazine, I gave 2 raw food recipes and inevitably came the question “Does that mean, that you should eat only raw food to stay fit and healthy?” and if I had to honest, the answer was… no, you shouldn’t. You can eat animal products and they are considered healthy. So, here we are, with this healthy and delicious vegetarian quiche, which I created specially for the magazine. I hope you will like it, as much as I did.
for the crust
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1 cup wholemeal spelt flour
- 1/2 cup cold coconut oil
- 1 table spoon poppy seeds
- 3-4 table spoons ice water
1. Blend the oatmeal into a flour in the kitchen robot.
2. Add the spelt flour, coconut oil and poppy seeds and blend again.
3. Open the kitchen robot from above and start adding the ice cold water until the mixture starts forming a dough.
4. Take it from the robot and leave in the fridge for 30 minutes.
5. Spread using your hands in small quiche forms and bake for 10-15 minutes until the filling is ready.
P.S. The crust uses the recipe from this galette with a little twist.
for the filling
- 6 eggs
- 1 cup goat cheese
- 1 cup broccoli
1. Beat the eggs, crush the cheese and cut the broccoli into small bites.
2. Mix everything together and pour over the crust.
3. Bake for 40-50 minutes.
From the quantities above, you can make 4 small quiches or 1 big pan. If you decide to make one big pan, double the filling.
