Grain-Free Mini Quiche

This recipe I use alot a mini quiches as a healthy snack for my two year old or for us.  It uses the fast and easy besan flour pastry, you can vary the filling to make as many variations as you like.

Base

1 ½ cups besan / magic bean flour

1 tsp sea salt

¼ cup olive oil

up to ½ cup cold water

Preheat oven to 180 deg cel.

In food processor add flour and salt, with motor running add oil and process in bursts until mixture looks like bread crumbs. Add enough water to form a dough (will not use all of ½ cup)

Remove from processor and roll out (dust rolling pin with potato flour and roll out on sheet of baking paper to stop sticking). Cut into rounds with cookie cutter.

Grease and flour medium muffin tins and press pastry rounds into bottom.

Prick with fork. Cover with foil squares and a few beans. Blind bake for about 10 minutes.

When cooked, remove from oven and then add filling.
