Vegetables Pie / Quiche

I just made it up this recipe and it is very nice

It is a Vegetable Pie / Quiche (I haven't decided yet how to call it) maybe Bavarian Style?

anyway,  here is the recipe:
you will need:

1/4 pumpkin

1 zucchini
2 carrots
1 sweet potato
1 brown onion
1 garlic clove
3 eggs
1 1/4 cups flour
extra flour to thicken the filling
3 tbsp butter / margarine (Cold / chopped)

3 tbsp of water for the dough
plus some more for the vegetables 

250g Ricotta ( i used light)
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
plus salt (and pepper) to taste
Nut meg

Oil Spray

All the vegetables should be shredded. I used the food processor, because mine has a disc with this function, otherwise you can use the old and good metal one. The onion and garlic can be chopped.

But first, the dough
In a large bowl, put flour and salt and butter / margarine. Star mixing with your finger and it will become granular. add water, 1 spoon at time.
Make a ball, and wrap it with cling wrap paper and put it in the fridge to rest for 30 minutes.
It is a little bit messy, but it doesn't matter because only goes on the bottom of your pie / quiche.

Heat up the oil in a large frypan, add onion and garlic and sugar.
Add some water so the sugar wont burn.

In this photo you can see is just enough sugar to "Cover" the onions.
Add all the vegetables, and stir well. The vegetables will absorb the water.
Add some nutmeg and cinnamon and some flour (Very little), to thicken the mixure only a little bit and keep stirring for around 5 to 8 minutes in high heat.
Put it aside.

Preheat the oven to 180C.
in a separate bowl, beat up the eggs, and add half of the ricotta, salt and pepper to taste.
Open your dough between to pieces of baking paper, so you wont need to use extra flour.

Place the dough in the bottom and sides of a oven proof dish or baking tray.
Now this is how I made it (and dont ask me why)

First, a layer of the vegetables mixture.
Then, I poured a little bit of the egg mixture, that technically should penetrate in between the veggies.
Then, I put another layer of vegetables and egg.
Then Mix the rest of the ricotta with the rest of the vegetables and put it on the top.
I mixed everything a little bit but feel free to adapt and do it the "Right way"

I am showing this photo so you can see the inside.
It is delicious and healthy.
Yum Yum.
