Mushroom Quiche with Leek

Here you have another savoury pie recipe that is perfect for a winter get together or lunch. It is time for Christmas parties in Finland this weekend and it’s the first advent Sunday tomorrow. The quiche might not be anything Christmasy but certainly something delicious. It is easy to make and does not have as heavy filling as some other quiches.

Pie crust:
100 g butter, 2.5 dl flour, 2 tbsp cold water
Mix the cold butter and flour. Add the water little by little. Work into a smooth pastry dough.

Filling:
2 dl prepared* forest mushrooms
1 large leek or 2-3 small ones
1 tbsp olive or sun flower oil
2 eggs
1 dl double cream or cheese flavoured cooking cream
1 dl grated Parmesan
Salt and pepper

* prepared = mushrooms that you have cleaned and heated on the pan to evaporate excess liquid

1 Pre-heat the oven to 200 C.
2 Make the pie crust. Cover a creased pie form with the crust.
3 Clean and cut the leek into small pieces. Sauté it in a pan. Add the mushrooms and let simmer for a couple of minutes. Let the mixture cool down.
4 Beat the eggs lightly, add the cream and cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Pour over the mushroom-leek mixture.
5 Bake for 40 minutes and serve with green salad.
