Sourdough Parmesan Crust, Quiche

February 23, 2018

 

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.

To assemble the quiche, carefully roll out the dough on a floured board and flour your rolling pin. Roll to 1/4 in thick
