Gram Pastry Case

  1. Rub some oil around the inside of a 20cm/8” round tart or flan dish.
  2. Put the flour, xanthan gum and salt into a mixing bowl, stir to combine and sieve into a mixing bowl.
  3. Cut the butter into small cubes and put them into the mixing bowl.
  4. Using a fork or pastry blender, work the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  5. Stir in enough water to bring together a soft ball of dough, it may appear a little wet but will absorb the liquid.
  6. Cover and rest the pastry for 15 minutes.
  7. Pre-heat the oven.
  8. Dust the work surface with flour, put the pastry in the middle and sprinkle it with more flour. 
  9. Roll the pastry out into a circle 5cm/2” larger than you dish and lift it into the dish.
  10. OR simply press the dough into the dish using your fingers.
  11. Prick the pastry all over with a fork.

Blind Baking

  1. Lay a large piece of parchment paper over the raw pastry, making sure all the edges are covered.
  2. Scatter the ceramic baking beans (or rice or flour) over the parchment paper, spreading them evenly over the surface. 
  3. Bake for 15-18 minutes then remove from the oven and carefully lift the parchment and contents off the pastry. Return the pastry to the oven and cook for a further 5-6 minutes.

Onion and Bacon Quiche Filling

  1. Finely slice the onions into a frying pan, add the bacon or vegan bacon cubes and oil and cook over a medium heat until the onions and bacon have changed colour.
  2. Break the eggs into a bowl, add the nutmeg, salt and pepper and beat well.
  3. OR whisk the gram flour, xanthan gum, nutmeg, salt and pepper with half the vegan milk to make a smooth paste. Whisk in the remaining milk.
  4. Grate the cheese and add this to the bowl.
  5. Mix in the cooked onion and bacon or vegan bacon.
  6. Tip everything into the pastry case and bake for 25-30 minutes.
