Roasted Vegetable Quiche Recipe

Savoury Shortcrust Pastry

250 gm (1 2/3 cups) plain flour
190 gm unsalted butter, coarsely chopped, chilled
1egg yolk


Freeze butter and grate into flour, rub though your fingers until the mixture resembles fine bread crumbs.

Make a well and add egg yolk and water, mix until dough comes together


Process flour, butter and a pinch of salt in a food processor until fine crumbs form.

Add egg yolk and enough chilled water (about 3-4 tsp) and process until mixture just forms a dough (2-4 seconds).

Turn pastry onto a floured surface and lightly knead with the heel of your hand until the pastry comes together.
Form pastry into a disc, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled (2-3 hours).
Roll pastry, using a rolling pin, on a lightly floured surface to 3mm thick.
Brush excess flour from pastry with a pastry brush, then use pastry cutters to cut lining for individual cases or roll pastry backwards over rolling pin to lift pastry and line large tart case. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to rest.
Preheat oven to 200C. Blind bake pastry with rice or pie weights until golden (15-25 minutes), then cool on a wire rack.
