• ¾ cup ¾ cup (100g) flour
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 400g can Wattie's Chickpeas in Springwater, drained
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup tightly packed baby spinach leaves
  • 75g feta, crumbled
  • 6 eggs
  • ¾ cup trim milk
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, halved
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Place flour, olive oil and Wattie’s Chickpeas into a food processor. Process until the chickpeas are finely chopped and mixture looks like crumbs. Turn the pastry onto a board and bring it together with your hands. Knead lightly until smooth. Roll out pastry on a lightly floured board and line the base and sides of a loose bottom 22cm flan tin.
  2. Line the flan base with baking paper and, to blind bake, fill with baking beans. Blind bake the pastry for 10 minutes. Remove the baking beans and paper and return to the oven for a further 3-5 minutes, until the surface of the pastry has dried out. Set aside to cool. Reduce oven temperature to 180°C.
  3. Heat a dash of oil in a saucepan. Add the onion and cook over a medium heat until onion is soft.
  4. Place the onion in the base of the flan. Top with baby spinach leaves and crumbled feta.
  5. Beat the eggs and milk together. Season. Carefully pour into the flan base. Top with tomato halves, cut side up. Bake for 25-30 minutes until the egg has set. Stand for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with a fresh green salad on the side.

This was really easy to make and made a great quiche base. I didn't have feta on hand, so I threw other things in and it turned out well. I will definitely use this base again!

100g flour, 2TB olive oil and 400g chickpeas in spring water made sludge, not crumbs. I certainly won't be trying this again.

I’m doing weight watchers at present and this recipe fits in with the programme. The base is awesome & will definitely use it again! Even the men in my household enjoyed it - men do eat quiche

Lovely dish to make the whole family enjoyed it. I did make 2 with the option of bacon n the second.
The crust is now a firm fave in my family.
