onion and leek quiche

assalamu'alaikum wrt wbt

sabtu lepas beli leeks di pasar tani..
hajat dihati nak buat cream soup
tapi asikla lupa nak beli heavy cream
bila guna susu segar buat creamy carrot+cauliflower soup  tak laku!
budak2 tak minat. mau yg betul2 pekat jugak. mau mushroom jugak.
sudahnya, leeks dikorbankan buat quiche.
dan dibawak sebagai bekal sarapan di pejabat.

  • 4 sliced whites of leek* <-- i use almost the whole leek.. up to the green part.
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 Tablespoon of butter
  • 1 big onion
  • A bit of oil
  • 1 ½ Tablespoon of flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 2/3 cup of plain yogurt 
  • 1/8 teaspoon of pepper (or more) 
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • ½ cup of grated swiss, mozzarella, or whatever white cheese you like
  • ½ cup of grated cheddar
  • Deep pie shell [works well with frozen pie, but of course you can make your own pie] <-- i use my frozen dan lepard's pie crust. yummy!
  1. Clean and cut the whites of the leeks in tiny piece
  2. Put them in 1 cup of water, add 1 Tablespoon of butter, cover and bring to a boil, when it starts boiling, uncover, lower a bit the heat, keep about 20 mn or until leeks are tender, strain the leeks
  3. While the leeks are cooking, peel the onion, cut in small pieces, and sauté in skillet with a bit of oil
  4. Preheat the oven to 385 (195C)
  5. When onions are tender and golden, sprinkle with the flour, mix well, cook slowly for an extra 3min.
  6. While onions are cooking, beat the eggs in a mixing bowl, with yogurt, pepper, nutmeg, and the grated white cheese
  7. Add cooked onions and leeks to the mixture
  8. Check the seasoning 
  9. Pour into the pie shell
  10. Spread the grated cheddar on top. i sprinkled chili flakes on top as well. 
  11. Bake for 30min, or until the quiche is puffed and browned.
i think this is the yummiest quiche i ever made ;)
