Ingredients

THE CRUST

    500ml (2 cups) You First almond flour
    125ml (½ cup) finely-grated Parmesan cheese
    Pinch of cayenne pepper

THE FILLING

    500ml (2 cups) Food Lover’s double thick plain yoghurt
    250ml (1 cup) Food Lover’s cheddar cheese, grated
    5 eggs
    Freshly-ground salt and pepper
    375ml (1 ½ cups) thinly-sliced beef biltong
    1 large onion, chopped
    30ml (2 Tbsp) butter
    Small handful of fresh thyme leaves

TO SERVE

    Large handful of fresh wild rocket leaves
    Handful of thinly-sliced biltong

Directions

    Preheat the oven to 180°C.
    To make the crust; place all the ingredients in a food processor and blitz until the crust comes together. Grease a loose-bottomed quiche pan and press the crust mixture into the pan. Let it chill in the fridge for 10 to 15 minutes.
    While the crust chills, place the onions and butter into a saucepan, over medium heat. Cook for 8 minutes, stirring until caramelized, taking care not to burn.
    To make the filling; mix together all the filling ingredients and pour into the pastry case. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until it is golden brown. Serve topped with fresh wild rocket and leftover sliced biltong.
