Just mix them until it looks like coarse crumbs. Then in a small bowl, beat the egg with a fork together with the ice water. Now pour the egg mixture over the flour mixture and mix them with a silicon spatula. Then press the dough to form a disc, wrap it with a plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Now remove the dough from the freezer, cover it with parchment paper and fill it with pie weights or dried chickpeas. Then bake the dough in preheated oven to 180 ºC for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, remove the pan from the oven, remove the pie weights and parchment paper and palce it back in the oven. And bake the dough for 10 minutes more until it is slightly brown.

Now in a large saucepan or skillet, add the olive oil and onion and fry the onion until it is translucent. Then add the broccoli and minced garlic. After 2 minutes add the spinach to the mixture and fry until the spinach is soft. Then remove the saucepan away from the heat and let it cool. Next, in a bowl beat the eggs with salt and pepper first and then mix them with the cream.
