Ingredients

--THE CRUST:
500ml (2 cups) You First almond flour
125ml (½ cup) finely-grated Parmesan cheese
Pinch of cayenne pepper
1 egg
--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.
