Västerbotten Paj – Cheese quiche…

The crayfish season is nearly over here in Sweden, on Saturday we had our annual crayfish party. It was great fun and on top of crayfish you always tend to have sthumb_IMG_1504_1024ome Västerbottens cheese pie.  Basically it is a strong cheese and you could also use parmesan.

Oven at 180 degrees C.

Ingredients for the gluten free pie crust:

  • 75 grams butter (cold)
  • 1 dl buckwheat flour
  • 1 dl oat flour
  • 1 tbsp psyllium husk/fibre husk
  • 1 tbsp po fibre
  • 1/2 dl sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 dl linseeds
  • pinch of salt

Blitz the sunflower seeds and the linseed into a rough flour and then mix all the ingredients quickly into a firm dough.  Add water if it needs a little more moisture.thumb_IMG_1501_1024

Put it in a round oven proof dish – place in the fridge whilst you make the filling.


  • 200 grams grated västerbottens ost (or parmesan or strong cheddar)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 dl cream
  • plenty of salt and pepper

Add the mixture to the chilled pie crust and then pop it into the oven for 30-40 minutes.
