How to make this gluten free quiche?

The flours used are both buckwheat and almond flour. Generally speaking, you can find these in your supermarket, but if your local does not have them, try for an eco-shop or an organic store.

You start by preheating the oven and line the cake tin (18cm). Now make the crust: you add the flours, quark and Italian herbs into a bowl and then mix it until you get a proper dough.

Add this dough to the cake tin and spread out. Make sure the thickness of the dough at all places is around 2-3cm, so spread out to the sides if the dough gets too thick! We measured it would go about 5cm up on the sides of the cake tin with this amount of dough. Then just place in the fridge whilst making the filling!

Now you prep the filling: fry off the broccoli, then squeeze out the juice of the cherry tomatoes and add them to the broccoli pan. Leave on the side.

In a bowl, mash 3/4 of the goats cheese with a fork, then add the buckwheat flour, eggs and quark and whisk together until all lumps are gone. Then add the broccoli mixture, the dijon mustard and half of the basil and pine nuts. Stir together.

Get the pastry out of the fridge and fill up with the goats cheese mixture. Divide over the remaining goats cheese, pine nuts and basil leaves, pop in the oven and voila! Within 40mins you have a dinner and lunch ready!
