Tomato, basil and cheese quiche


For the Pastry:
149g. of Olive oil
160g of water
350g. of plain flour
1 Tea spoon of salt

For the filling:
3 Eggs, beaten
2 Tomatoes
½ Onion
1 Cup of cream or milk
1 Mozarrella cheese
1 Cup of basil, chopped
Salt and pepper 

Heat the olive oil for 2 or 3 minutes, then add the flour to blanch it. Then add the salt and the water and mix it until get a homogeneous mass.  Roll out the pastry on a light floured surface and get a thin dough. Line it on a baking dish. Prick the pastry with a fork.

I use to make quiches with this easy olive oil pastry. It´s very crunchy, delicious and healthy, because butter or other bad fats aren´t  used.

Preheat the oven to 200 C
Bake it for 15 minutes until the edges are golden. Then remove from the oven.
Meanwhile peel the tomatoes and the onion and chop them. Heat a little of olive oil in a fry pan and gently fry the vegetables until they are soft, then add the basil. Combine the eggs with the milk in a bowl and season well. Add the tomatoes, onions and basilica and the cheese.
Pour the mix of eggs, tomatoes and cheese in the pastry and bake it for 30 minutes or until set.

 Remove from the oven and enjoy it with a green salad.
