--------  ------------  --------------------------------
  1                cup  sprouted whole wheat flour
  4             ounces  pasture butter
  3        tablespoons  water
  1             large  leek -- washed and hopped cut sideways
  2           handfuls  spinach -- washed and chopped
  1              small  yellow pepper -- chopped
  6             medium  pasture raised eggs
     1/2           cup  organic 1/2 and /.2
     1/4           cup  feta cheese -- crumbled
     1/4           cup  goat gouda or gruyere -- grated

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Put the flour and butter in a food processor and cut in butter till fine.  Add water and leave on till the dough forms into a round ball.  Remove from processor and roll out between two pieces of plastic wrap and place in a quiche or glass dish.  Place in oven for 15 minutes.
Saute the leek in butter and add the yellow pepper after 3 minutes then add the spinach after 5 minutes, stir spinach for 1 minute and then set aside.
Beat 6 eggs together and slightly warm the 1/2 and 1/2 in a small pan  till it is tepid, then add to the eggs and mix in a little salt.  Add the vegetable mixture and the feta cheese.  Sprinkle the grated goat gouda on top and place in the oven for 20 minutes.  Allow to cool for 5 minutes and then serve with salad of your choice.

Lovely crisp crust with divine veggie filling

NOTES : Pasture raised eggs are what a real egg is supposed to taste like.  They come from chickens that have been outside eating a proper chicken diet like bugs and vegetables and therefore the egg comes from a more healthy chicken and therefore it produces a better tasting more nutrient dense egg.  I know they cost more, but they are worth it.  Better yet, get your own chickens and then you really will have the best eggs you can get.
