Vegan quiche with potatoes and cabbage

Posted by Matteo Casadio on 19 January 2017

With pleasure I’am publishing today a recipe of a dear friend (Sandra Baronchelli).

It was a long time that I noticed her healthy recipes

Today when I saw her vegan quiche with potatoes and cabbage, I asked for permission to publish it in

Sandra has promptly sent me her recipe and so, after a few hours from having his baked pie, the recipe is available to everyone who will try to imitate it.


180 g 0 soft wheat flour milled stone,

70 g Buckwheat flour

100 ml water

35 ml extra virgin olive oil

½ teaspoon baking soda

1 dash white wine

1 teaspoon coarse wholemeal Cervia salt freshly ground

1/4 Cabbage

3 medium potatoes



vegetable cream and 2 eggs (for a vegan version)

For the stuffing:

In a pan simmer 10 min cabbage coarsely chopped with a little ‘extra virgin olive oil, a dash of vinegar, a little water and salt to taste.

In another pot same procedure for potatoes sliced, (not cook them too much because then they’re going in the oven).

For the base:

Mix the flour milled wheat stone, Buckwheat flour, water, olive oil, baking soda, a dash of white wine and the big wheel Cervia salt freshly ground.

Making the dough rest for half an hour in the refrigerator.

With a rolling pin, roll out the dough. Lay it on a sheet of paper from the oven and with the wheel to cut a 32 cm diameter disc about. Lift the baking paper and place it on the cake of 26 cm in diameter. Adhere the base to the edges and prick with a fork.

Stuffed with potato and cabbage filling. For those who want more traditional you can add vegetable cream or if you want to make vegetarian 2 eggs.

Close the edges of the dough slightly inside.

Bake in a preheated oven at 200ºC for 30 minutes.

Let cool, unmold and serve.

Sandra: “for the success of each dish is important that the products are good, healthy and natural, in that flour, oil … must be purchased directly from producers or from trusted suppliers!”

Vegetable quiche recipe

Posted by Matteo Casadio on 6 January 2017

The quiche or vegetable pie is ideal as a snack or appetizer. The recipe is simple and quick to prepare and can be customized to fantasy.

Ingredients for one 24 cm cake tin:
1 box of puff pastry (you can even do it becomes more challenging) or pie crust
250 g vegetables (can be fine broccoli, zucchini, onion, leeks, ….)
2 eggs
3 dl cream or milk
50 g Parmesan or other cheese
pepper and spices to taste

Line a baking pan of 24 cm in diameter with the dough, making it adhere to the walls and pierce it with a fork.
Wash vegetables. In this case, we have used broccoli, cut and steamed; for other vegetables like zucchini, onion … after being sliced thinly, you have to toss in a pan with a little oil, (the onion the better way is to braise it on low heat).
In a bowl, beat the eggs with the cream, grated cheese, salt and spices, then add the vegetables.
Pour into the pan, cut the excess dough and bake in the oven at 210ºC for about 20 minutes.
Allow to cool and serve.
