This video was initially intending to present one of my favorite dishes, in a gluten-free casein-free version (recipe below), but it turned out to be more than this.
Pastry: 200 g. GF flour mix (rice, potato, tapioca, maize, buckwheat) and 100 g. margarin (or 1/2 margarin to flour in weight) + about 70 ml of water (1/3 of a glass about) + 1-2 pinch of salt. (about 1/3 of tea spoon).
Make the pastry as shown here, and leave it to rest for about 1hr (or more). Then roll it flat. The GF/CF pastry is not elastic, so, it's hard to lift in one piece into the mold. But it does not matter, you can reform the pastry into the mold with your hands as shown here. I prefer to cook the pastry for about 15 min without mixture onto it in order to harden it a little. I used a pre-heated oven, 180-190oC.
Quiche topping: 5-6 onions, cut, cook with butter and just enough water for the onion to remain totally white throughout. Do not add too much water as this would dilute the taste and make the mixture too liquid. I judge the water by just covering the onions. I cook for about 30 min with a lid on. When the onions are tender stop, or if there is still a little too much water left, take the lid out just for a few more minutes to leave it evaporate. Mix with a blender to make a very smooth puree. It should be all white. Add salt.
Beat 4 eggs together, add to the onion puree, be careful not to cook the eggs if the puree is still hot. Mix well and lay everything over the pastry prepared as above. Cook for about 30 min in a 190-180oC oven.
In this instance, I served the quiche with some grilled bacon that had been covered in pepper, and various herbs, paprika and it was served with cress (the spice mixture was dark red not black!).
The pastry worked out very well, it's easy to cut and to present once cooked, most people would not notice it is GF/CF. But it is not as crispy as a wheat base pastry. The quiche is of course excellent with a wheat-base pastry too (thats the original version).
This is a French recipe that comes from my mother. The onions are incredibly sweet and very tasty.

Note on the casein issue and butter issue: I use butter (it mostly doesn't have any casein and it is OK to use with ASD kids unless there is a true allergy (IgE related) to milk products, in this instance it is goat organic butter).
