Smoked Salmon, kale and dill quiche with sour cream shortcrust

For Sour Cream Shortcrust
2 cups plain flour
200 grams (7/8 of a cup) unsalted butter, cold, cut into small cubes
1/2 cup sour cream

For Filling
1 bunch of kale
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
4 ounces smoked salmon, flaked into small pieces using a fork
1 bunch fresh dill, roughly chopped
3 eggs
1/3 cup coffee cream
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan
Sea salt and cracked black pepper to taste

For sour cream shortcrust:
Place butter and flour in a food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Add the sour cream and continue to pulse until the dough starts to incorporate into a ball. Flatten the dough into a disc, wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm.

Roll out the pastry between two sheets of baking paper big enough to line your pie pan.. Lift pastry into tin, crimp as you please. I froze the pastry for an hour or so.

Preheat the oven to 400 F . Place pie pan on a cookie sheet. Blind bake by lining the pastry and then pour in dried beans or rice. Bake for 20 minutes or until light golden. Remove paper and beans/rice. Return to the oven for another 10-15 minutes to crisp. Allow to cool.

For the filling:
Reduce the oven to 350 F .

Remove and discard stem from kale. Tear or roughly chop kale leaves into small bite-size pieces. Heat oil in a frying pan, add garlic and stir over medium heat until fragrant. Add kale leaves and saute until the kale has wilted. Remove from heat.

Place eggs, cream, milk, cheese, salt and pepper in a bowl and whisk to combine.

Scatter the kale, smoked salmon and dill in your pastry shell and pour the egg mixture over everything. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until set and golden. (Took my oven longer.) Rest for 10 minutes before serving.
