Après Noël une quiche....
And I love quiches easy, healthy and delicious, we were alone at home with Esperanza so the quiche will be vegetarian of course!
The original recipe is with spinachs but we use only little tomatoes and basil.

Cherry tomatoes and basil quiche
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1/2 cup unsalted butter (cold)
2 tablespoon cold water
2 tablespoons breadcrumbs or panko
5 large eggs
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup crumble cheese (/feta, mozzarela or gauda)
1 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
Mix all purpose flour and salt, add the egg the cold butter and 2 tablespoon cold water. Use yours hands to form a smooth dough. For a disc, wrap in cling film and put in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180° c (370° F)
ligtly grease a 9" / 23 cm quiche pan or pie dish.
In a large bowl mix eggs, heavy cream and crumbled cheese together. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
On a floured work surface roll out the chilled shortcrust dough until you have a circle that is slightly larger than your quiche pan.
Line your pan with the dough and picked the bottom with a fork a few times and sprinkle the breadcrumbs or panko on top.
Pour the mixture over your crust and distribute well. Then gently press the cherry tomatoes and basil leaves into the filling.
Carefully transfer to the oven and bake for 45 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the filling is set. If your quiche get darks quickly cover with aluminium foil.
Remove the quiche from the oven and let it rest for 10 minutes before serving.
For serving add some basil leaves.
