French quiche (pie) with tomato and onion

I love food! There are very few things that I do not like and millions of things that I like and love! One of the things I love it French quiches – and so that’s what I want to share with you today. This recipe is from a wonderful French lady from the Southern part of France, my family and I had rented the house next to hers one summer and she came over that very first night to welcome us. With her, she brought this wonderful quiche which I later got the recipe for.
A little while ago I posted about French foods you need to try, and one of them was the quiche Loraine. This is a variation of that traditional recipe and can easily be made into the traditional recipe by keeping the onions and switching out the tomatoes for bacon pieces and cheese.

Check out my post about French foods you need to try here.

I use this quiche for both lunch and dinner, this time I made it for dinner for the family so I made one big quiche, but with this recipe, you can also make 6 smaller ones that are perfect for lunches.

Ingredients:

Dough:

  • 150 g of whole wheat flour
  • 100 g of graham flour
