Another Blog Tribute to My Verduleria

Posted on October 10, 2010 by Vivi in RECIPES, TARTAS, VEGETARIAN

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.
