Here I go again trying new ways to use my Sourdough Starter and here it is. Quiche in a tart pan. It's cheesy and it has onions, mushrooms and thyme, parmesan is in the crust along with the sourdough. I added Arugula on the top and a few chili flakes for the win. So far we have had it for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner and I gave some away to friends
This is the butter and the sourdough starter and Parm. I know lots of butter
Just wrap it up and let it chill for a bit
Ready to into the oven
For the Sourdough Crust
1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, that's 2 sticks, cold
Scant cup of sourdough starter, cold
A small chunk of Parmesan Cheese, about 2 to 3 Tablespoons if grated.
Add flour, salt and parmesan to food processor and pulse to combine
Scatter slices of butter over top of flour and pulse until butter breaks into small chunks
Spread the sourdough starter over the flour and pulse until mixture just starts to come together, stop just before it forms into a ball
Press into a ball and then press flat and wrap in a baggie or plastic wrap and chill for about 1 hour.
For the filling
3 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup chopped onion
1 1/2 cups about of sliced mushrooms
1 Tablespoon fresh thyme, or 1 teaspoon dried and some sprigs for the top just for pretty
