Today's recipe is a quick and easy self-crusting quiche.  We enjoy this for lunch on its own.  You could add a salad and serve it for your evening tea or steam some other vegetables to go along side it.  What I love about this recipe is that it is easy to customize to your families likes.   Today, for instance, I didn't have any broccoli, "No worries," I thought,  "I'll just use frozen peas."  Nope, didn't have any of those either.  I've used chopped spinach in this before and it was quite tasty, too.  If you can tolerate dairy, add a handful of shredded cheese.  If you like mushrooms, add some.  If you prefer bacon to ham, go for it!  If you only want vegetables, feel free.  If you are going to use spinach, don't bother cooking it first.  Just chop it and throw it in raw.  If using frozen peas, I would suggest running them under cold water first to partly thaw them so they don't stick together in a big clump.

The basic recipe is just that, pretty basic.  If you prefer a bit more flavour you could add some chopped herbs.   The possibilities are endless!  Enjoy!

4 eggs
1 cup milk (we use coconut milk)
1/4 cup rice flour (white or brown, it doesn't really matter)
1/4 cup corn flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped ham
1 cup lightly steamed broccoli, chopped

1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C.
2. Whisk eggs and milk together.
3. Add flours, baking powder, and salt.  Whisk until smooth.
4. Stir in ham and broccoli.  Pour into greased pie plate.
5. Bake for 35-40 minutes (until golden on top and set in the middle).
