I know …. I talk a lot about my verduleria. Because honestly, I love it.
There are three different fruit stands that I frequent, but of course I have my favorite. Its run by Marli and her husband, and their adorable 2 year old son.
When I went earlier last week to get my veg fix, I noticed they had done a little redecorating inside, so I had to snap some shots.
Here I am!
Here is Marli.
I bought some zucchini, carrot, red pepper and eggs. I went home to make a Tarta dela Primavera – or Spring Quiche, if you prefer.
I grated the vegetables, mixed with egg and poured into my homemade pastry crust. I will never again buy pastry crust now that I know just how easy it is to make! Here is the incredibly simple recipe:
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup warm milk
- salt to taste
Mix ingredients thoroughly, and press into your greased pie dish. No need to roll. Bake in the oven for a few minutes before adding the filling to ensure that you wont have a soggy bottom. The result is a savory and flaky crust that is perfect with egg dishes, and so easy to make.
Topped the quiche with some leftover cheese that I had and baked at medium heat until a knife inserted in the middle came out clean. Delish.
