Red Onion and Feta Quiche

I'm pretty obsessed with feta. Everyone says they tire of Greek food quickly but for me it's like heaven. Tomatoes and feta... I don't really need anything else. So any opportunity to find new things to do with feta is very welcome and this quiche was yummy with a tomato salad and some chutney.

Red Onion and Feta Quiche

Serves 3 (or 2 hungry gardeners)

For the pastry:
170g plain flour
85g butter (cold)
3tbsp cold water

For the filling:
1 red onion
150g feta cheese
150ml milk
2 eggs
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

Pre-heat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4. You will need a loose bottomed quiche tin buttered and ready to go.

1. Put the pastry ingredients in the magimix and blitz together until it forms a ball. Turn onto a floured surface and knead lightly until smooth. Cover in clingfilm and put in the fridge for at least half an hour.

2. Toss the onion slices in olive oil and lay on a baking tray. Bake in the oven for about 10 mins until they are beginning to turn golden. When they are done you can leave to cool

3. Roll out the pastry on a floured surface to fit your quiche tin. Then bake the pastry blind (lining the case with greaseproof paper and using baking beans or something to weigh the paper down) for about 15 mins.

4. Put the onions in the pastry case, crumble the feta over (you can cut it into cubes if you want to be neater).

5. Whisk together the eggs, milk and some salt and pepper. Pour this over the onions and cheese and bake for 35 minutes until set and lightly browned.

6. Serve with whatever you like - but tomato salad was just yummy.
I meant to take a photo of a slice of it which was more appetizing... but I ate it all
