Autumn Wholemeal Heirloom Tomato Quiche

Heirloom tomato season is in full swing here in Australia, and as we step into autumn you'll no doubt start seeing an abundance of varieties at your local Farmers Markets. I love the different shapes, shades and colours of heirloom tomatoes, but green tomatoes are my sure fire favourite. What's your favourite colour? If you've been wanting to make a meal for your family that's loaded with seasonal heirloom tomatoes, my Wholemeal Heirloom Tomato Quiche is just for you. It's packed with a colourful variety of local heirloom tomatoes (both whole and sliced), pitted kalamata olives, my favourite Meredith Valley Marinated Goats Cheese, homemade basil pesto and fresh basil leaves.

For this recipe I decided to make a wholemeal tart base from scratch, which is perfect when you have time to spend in the kitchen on the weekend or during the week if you're spending more time at home - which many of us are these days. If you've never made a tart base from scratch, don't worry. I have made sure to include detailed, step by step instructions with lots of valuable tips so you don't feel overwhelmed, frustrated or confused. Once you make it, you'll realise - wow, that was actually easy!

As a serving suggestion, I usually make a simple leafy green salad on the side with an equal parts dijon mustard, white white vinegar and olive oil dressing. 

The wonderful thing about this quiche is that it can be made ahead of time, and you can leave it in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can reheat it in the microwave if you're strapped for time, or in the oven at 180C for 5 to 10 minutes. Best of all - it can be enjoyed cold or warm, and you can enjoy it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. 

It can also be stored in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months. Pop the frozen quiche in the oven for between 10 to 20 minutes at 180C. Keep an eye on your oven as they are not all made equal. For more tips and advice, scroll down to the bottom of the Recipe Card.
