Leek quiche with brown rice piecrust
What to do with a handful of cooked brown rice? Not enough to serve it alone, but too much to throw it away. What to do with a bunch of leeks? Well, it's very simple, just make a quiche with brown rice in the piecrust, and leek as topping. The brown rice in the piecrust brings in some very crusty texture which goes very well with softness of the leeks. From the nutritive point of view, the brown rice also brings in a lot of fibers and proteins. The perfect tasty-healthy-yummy dinner for another evening without A..
Brown rice piecrust quiche:
- 1/2 cup of cooked brown rice, optimally leftovers
- 2/3 cup of flour of your choice
- 2tbs of olive oil
- salt, pepper
- a bit of water
In a bowl, mix the flour, the olive oil, the salt and pepper and a bit of water . Start kneading and then add brown rice. Continue to knead an add if necessary a bit of water or a bit of flour in order to obtain the right texture for the dough, which is neither too dry neither too wet. Set the dough with your hands in a greased pie dish. No you're ready and you can put anything you want in the quiche. In my case, I used simply leeks that I steamed before hand, with 2 beaten eggs, salt and pepper. And then in a preheated oven at 180° I baked a quiche for 20 minutes or until golden.
Even when A. is away on business trip, I continue to cook just for myself. I can't help continue cooking new stuff. I actually take it as a good opportunity to try new recipes because the only person I can disappoint myself.
