Potato & Spinach Quiche

This is another microwavable recipe. I searched recipes for microwable quiche and eggless quiche and incorporated stuff from a few recipes to suit us. Tried it the first time and because we dont eat egg and I dont have an oven. It was giving me jitters, But a the end it turned out well.
For the crust
Bread Crumbs - 2 tbsp
Marie Bisuits - 2
Whole Wheat Pastry Flour - 1/4 cup
All Purpose Flour - 1/4 cup
Salt to taste
Oil - 1 tsp
For the quiche
Boiled Potato - 1
Onion - 1
Garlic - 2 cloves
Blanched Spinach - a handful
Cheese - 2 slices
Milk - 1/2 glass
Rice Flour - 1 tbsp
Pepper Powder - 1 tbsp
Salt to taste

Heat oil, saute finely chopped onions till golden brown. Add chopped garlic cloves, mashed potato and blanched spinach, salt and mix well. You can add any vegetables of your choice as well.
Boil milk, add cheese, pepper powder and rice flour and stir continuously till the sauce is thick. Mix all the vegetables with it and set aside.
Mix all the ingredients for the crust with some water till it resembles a coarse meal.
Spray a microwavable bowl with a cooking spray.
Roll it out into a flat circle and pat it onto the the bowl and microwave the crust till it becomes hard.
Add this filling to the pastry shell and microwave for 5 minutes. If its liquidy, microwave for another 5 minutes till its set jelly like and serve hot.
