Tips and tricks
Barcodes should appear appear on selected FirstRand Bank and FNB Edgars documents. If you are seeing a strange line of letters & symbols appearing on these documents instead of a barcode, you need to install a specific font on your PC. Please give HelpDesk a ring and they'll talk you through it.

Recipe - Tuna and Leek Quiche

Cheese pastry
¼ cup (62,5 ml) butter
½ cup (125 ml) grated cheddar cheese
¾ cup (190 ml) cake flour
2 T (30 ml) cold water
  • Preheat the oven to 200°C. Butter a 20-22 cm fluted porcelain flan dish or metal quiche pan.
  • Blend all the ingredients in a food processor to form coarse crumbs. Knead lightly to form a ball.
  • Wrap in cling film and leave at room temperature for at least an hour or overnight.
  • Roll out and line the flan dish, pushing pastry right up against the sides.
  • Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Line the dish with baking paper and weigh it down with pottery pastry weights, rice or beans.
  • Bake blind at 200ºC for 10 minutes. Remove the paper.
  • Brush the inside of the pastry with a little of the egg intended for the filling.
  • Bake for another 5 minutes. The egg-wash will waterproof the pastry.

2 leeks, well washed and finely sliced
2 T (30 ml) butter or olive oil
1 T (15 ml) flour
1 t (5 ml) Ina Paarman's Green Onion Seasoning
175 g tin of solid meat tuna in oil (drain off some of the oil and flake fish)
1 cup (250 ml) fresh or reduced fat (pouring) cream
2 extra large or jumbo eggs
1 t (5 ml) Ina Paarman's Lemon & Black Pepper Seasoning
  • Reduce oven temperature to 180ºC. Place the leeks and cubes of butter into a large frying pan and sauté until soft. It will take about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the flour and Green Onion Seasoning over and stir to blend.
  • Stir in the flaked tuna. Spoon the mixture into pre-baked pastry shell. In a jug, beat together the cream, eggs and Lemon & Black Pepper Seasoning and pour over. Bake at 180ºC for 30 minutes until the filling is firm and slightly puffy. Serve warm or at room temperature.
