A Caribbean take on a classic. Super quick with less fat and calories than a traditional Quiche Lorraine. The flour mimics the 'body' of the traditional Quiche. The mild, flavourful, Trinidad Capsicum chinense peppers breathe new life into an old favourite. These peppers are a uniquely flavoured habenero with an almost undetectable heat. Locally they go by the name pimento or seasoning peppers. To Trinidadians they are as invaluable as salt. We put them in practically everything we cook. We use them to 'season' meats, and a host of other dishes. Serve with a salad and for those indulgent moments a glass of white wine for dinner, or have a slice for breakfast. I usually make two pies and freeze one for later on in the month.You can use any kind of mild pepper that appeals to your taste and is available to you locally for this recipe. I have also made this using red and green sweet peppers and it's just as delicious. Roasted red peppers would be great too.
