For the pastry: combine all ingredients and quickly knead into a pastry. Shape into a ball, wrap in foil and refrigerate for 1 hour. For the topping: peel and rinse carrots, grate finely. Cut bacon into cubes. Peel and chop onion and garlic. Heat butter in a pan and saute bacon, onion and garlic for a few minutes.


Add grated carrots and season with spices, salt and pepper. Rinse and chop basil, add to the pan, saute briefly and cool. Roll out pastry on a floured work surface and line quiche pan with it, making an edge all around. Spread carrot mixture on the pastry.
