Healthy Quiche Crust
From EatingWell: March/April 2014
For our healthy homemade quiche crust recipe, we use half whole-wheat flour, replace some of the butter with heart-healthy olive oil and add a little sour cream to keep the crust flaky and tender. Making your own quiche crust recipe means you’ll skip unhealthy fats, preservatives and artificial color found in many store-bought crusts.
- 3/4 cup white whole-wheat flour
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons cold butter
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2-3 tablespoons ice water
- Whisk whole-wheat flour and all-purpose flour with salt in a medium bowl. Cut butter into small pieces; using your fingers, quickly rub the butter into the dry ingredients until smaller but still visible.
- Add sour cream and oil; toss with a fork to combine with the dry ingredients. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of ice water over the mixture. Toss with a fork until evenly moist; if the mixture seems dry, add up to 1 more tablespoon water. Knead the dough in the bowl a few times—the mixture may still be a little crumbly—then firmly press into a disk. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 2 days. Or wrap airtight and freeze for up to 3 months.
Tips & Notes
